This is probably a really stupid newbie question, but...
I cannot figure out how to blend skin tones. It seems to me that if I take a dark flesh color and blend it with a lighter shade of the SAME COLOR, I should get intermediate shades. But when I do this in ArtRage 2.5 on Snow Leopard, I get clown colors: Bright yellows and deep reds that are different in hue than the color I started with.
I have also tried taking a dark flesh color and blending with white, but that gives me the same strange results.
I have messed with this for hours and never gotten satisfactory results.
Can anyone point me to a a tutorial on the right way to blend flesh tones?
