Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating skin, part of The Making of Times Square: The People.
Textures come in many forms, even on our bodies. The skin texture.…Now it's very obvious in this one particular image way up here.…I am going to zoom in on this arm here and when we look at it, we se that there…is a skin texture to the arm.…Now, I didn't create it like here.…Of course, I always work at higher resolutions in much larger files when I need, so…when I shrink them down to the size that I need for the final image,…they rasterize and look nice and sharp.…If we want to look at the original of that arm, I will come right down here to…the poster art and there you can see that I have this area right here, come in…real close, and you see there's the skin texture.…

In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
