---------------------------------------------------
1.) start with middle tone.
2.) shade in the general lighting with all of the colours, with a hard round brush at a low opacity.
3.) continue to shade, with a bigger hard round brush, same colours, and smoothing out the tones.
4.) continue smoothing and blending (you can use the 'smudge' tool if you wish.)
5.) fix some of the lighting, taking into consideration the background and reflections.
6.) on a new layer, with a soft airbrush on full opacity, mark in some pink, blue, green, and ugly yellow.
7.) change the layer to 'soft light' and change the opacity accordingly.
8.) on a new layer, add a bit of texture using spatter brushes, with black and white.
9.) change the layer to 'soft light' and about a 45% opacity.
10.) on a new layer, add more texture, again with black and white.
11.) change the layer to 'softlight' on a 50% opacity.
12.) on a new layer, fill in with grey, and add 'noise' then 'spatter' effect, set it to about a 3-8% opacity on softlight.
add any extra details such as viens, moles, freckles, extra lighting, more detail in the skin pores, ect.

Of course!  Layering colours together with low opacity until it appears seamless, or blurring it works as well.

Thanks for sharing! You did an awesome job, my only suggestion is to apply it to a face or body part to really practice form and adding environmental lighting to the skin. <3

shesta713 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012  Student General Artist
It's a little hard to explain in words, though there are multiple ways to do it. I personally smooth by layers and layers of colours, and blending them together until it is seamless. There is other ways of using the smudge tool, or mixing the two ways. I recommend getting Paint Tool SAI if you are mostly drawing/painting rather than photo manipulations because it is a program designed purely for that purpose.

Figuring this tut out in Photoshop, I can tell you what gave me the best results regarding blending. The key is Opacity. There is an option to set different variables to pen pressure, like size, flow or opacity. I set only the opacity to pen pressure. The result looks awesome, it took me less than 10 minutes on a first timer to try to blend all those colors. Of course, this only works for graphic tablet users because this opacity setting has no effect when using a mouse. Actually, trying to blend colors using just the opacity value and a mouse it's (Close to) impossible, at least for me.
I felt like saying this because i've been trying to blend skin tones for ages and finally got this trick and thought... my gosh... this was such a basic simple thing and yet i spent so much time and work on figuring ways.
So maybe some other newbies will find this helpful :D I am working on photoshop elements because that's what my tablet came in with, meaning it does have less tool settings than CS and probably is a tad bit more complicated than SAI, but in matter of blending I prefer PSE to SAI Oo

That being said, thank you so so much for this tut, definitely helped me, my skin practice looks so cool i can hardly believe it came out of my tablet... I had tons of skin tuts ready to help me yet I ended up using just this one

Aside from building up the layers, no.
I dont use Corel, but in Paint Tool SAI the water tool is what I use as my 'blender' tool, so I'm assuming Corel's works the same.
