Good afternoon gunslingers!

Today's Daz's Daily goes out to all of you asking for basic human skin... the interesting thing here is that there are as many ways of attacking this particular subject as there are human skin tones!

So, here's my take on one "basic" human skin.

Basecoat the skin with two thin coats of Midlund Flesh (3-1 water to paint).

Highlight the skin with a thin (3-1) layer of Ryn Flesh. Aim this to cover the top parts and one third of the skin around it. Once again feather out the edges.

Highlight the highest points of the skin with a thin layer (4-1) of Menoth White Base. This should press right up against any shadowed areas to help create contrast.

Glaze (7-1) the recesses of the face and muscles with Skorne Red once again (do not allow to pool) and you're done!
