Haha, thanks.I don't know why I did that. It was like 11:00 or 12:00 at night when I painted it so I was tired...and wanted to do something different I guess

Thank you. The mouth area is usually one of the most difficult things for me to do. I'm glad you say this one turned out well :)

usually I will have a few different colors that I will be constantly mixing...I will have the tan base color, a yellow color, a darker brown, white and a red...If you want a skintone to look real, you need that yellow in there to bring it to life and the red too (but i don't use red too often). The dark brown is for shadow, the white is for highlights (you can use a bit of yellow in those areas too) and the base color (tan) is obviously what you will use to transition between lights and darks...
