Because Brittany is such a frail little preemie, I'm enjoying using the mottling, veining and shading to really give her that "freshly born" look.
I also made a special flesh 08 blend to continue to counteract the orange in the vinyl. This was the first complexion layer. You can see in the photo below that this really helped brighten her complexion. The hand on the left does not have this complexion layer yet.
Once that flesh tone layer was cured, I started adding blue-purple shading to the hands, feet and face. After it is carefully blended, this layer really brings depth to the complexion of the doll.
As I'm doing with Zoey, I'll keep adding flesh layers and shading layers until the skin looks just right.
