Material Studies - Skin by DanielAraya Material Studies - Skin by DanielAraya
I just wanted to increase my understanding of rendering skin, so I found some photos of people from the internet and tried to render spheres of flesh by observing how light played across their skin tones.  It ended up being a really useful exercise.

Great work, my friend ! I also thought at the first time that I'm looking at 3D models.

Do you have any online tutorials, it would be really helpfull ? :)

Great job, these are so well rendered that for a second I believed they were actual 3d renders!

The surfaces look like real human skin (at least to me) so it'd be interesting to see them used on some models of people, well done! :)

I like the purple tones and ambient light you achieved to observe.  I never really tried sphere lighting, but I see how well it could help with rendering skin tones.

It's pretty beneficial if you reeeally make an effort to dissect and understand what's happening.

And not be too focused on 'skin balls'  ;P  At least there are no hairs...  

So how is the Dungeon Defenders world going?  I have not been on top of things in a while.  Is DD2 still in Beta?

nice work how do you get this smooth and graini surface 
Reply
:icondanielaraya:
DanielAraya Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I start using mostly airbrushes, which gives me the smooth/soft transitions .  The grainy parts are done with a brush that's basically just a bunch of scattered dots, and then I paint on top of all that with a triangle brush that I made which I use for just about everything

great studies!  although, it's a little odd you're just sitting around painting skin balls. lol.  sorry, that sounded funnier in my head.
