About This Class

Have you ever struggled to replicate rosy, realistic blushes on Photoshop? Want to learn how to add an easy, realistic flush to your characters? This class will show you how in 6 minutes! (Although this class includes a few additional bonus tips on how to improve your blush).

Using the Gaussian Blur Tool (with a little help from the Eraser Tool) is the best way to add a rosy glow to your character art and digital portraits. This video lesson will show you where to apply your rosier tones on the face and body and how to adjust flush colors for various skintones using the Hue/Saturation window.
