When shading the skin tone would you use the same techinque as the dress and skirt, or would you use a template?
  • OreoVal
  • Level 43
  • Master Princess
  • February 18, 2015, 1:54 pm
I'll probably add a section on skin tones later, but uh I've never used a template for shading. But I wouldn't use the dress/skirt technique for skin cx
