    well i got up off my ass and decided to help some people out. here's a tutorial of how to make a face using a druid of the claw. make sure you frequently test your face on the skin, becuse i just realised that this one doesnt wrap too well.

    step1: cover the face with a basic skin tone, keep some lines which could help you with the placement of the features.

    step2: make burn marks which set up the main features of the face

    step3: continue burning, making shadows and deeper expressed features

    step4: use the smudge tool to smoothen out the shading

    step5: darken features and continue smudging as needed

    step6: recolor the face back to it's original color to get rid of redness in shadows

    step7: dodge numerous parts of face for hilights. parts that should be dodged are bottom of chin, cheekbone, nose, and eyebrow and forehead skin.

    step8: smudge and smoothen out

    step12: dodge a reflection, smudge isnt needed too much here

    step13: recolor face with several tones

    now youre done, remember to check for good wrapping since i made that mistake here. i just hope this can help the quality of skins submitted here.
