How to Color Skin with SAI

Step 1.

Start with the basic light skintone, dont worry about getting it on the other areas cause this is on a separate layer anyway Pick a darked tone (not to dark) than the color you used for base, depending on where you want the light to be, add some shadows, and drop shadows

Step 2.

Before moving on pick the airbrush tool, have the density on very low(density is how hard it will appear ) Having the same dark color go over the shadows area again, to make it smooth Pick an even darker color and apply over the shadow area again

Step 3.

Airbrush again like before and add some blush with the airbrush or pen

Step 4.

Same again but not with the airbrush this time, but with the water tool, (pick a color before using the water-tool) make the light and shadow areas smooth the cheeks too and add some highlights

Step 5.

add the final details in the face, like eye color and more highlights (Hair color added to see the skin-tone effect)
