I didn't find this very helpful... The first 2 steps don't really give clear directions of how hard the brush should be, how opaque it should be, or what shape the dark spots should be, so I ended up with some bad results. I tried this 3 different times, and I haven't gotten anything that looks like the end result shown in the tutorial. Maybe it's just me, but this really didn't work.

I'm practicing using Paint.net, the only thing close to Photoshop my family's computer has, so I need all the help I can get. Hence why I choose to Favorite tutorials like this.

Thank you for the help!

Thats actually a very good point, focusing on the tones more sometimes, then colouring it that way rather than picking out the colours and painting it that way, unless you were going for a certain look xD
