    Tu-anh: Hi, my name is Tu-anh I am going to show you how to draw fashion for beginners and now I am going to show you how to apply flesh tone and facial features. Let us see, I am going to just kind of touch up a little bit, let us touch up on the hair, just a little bit more so that you have some definition. Alright, so, now with flesh tone, I am going to choose the color light peach and you do not want to color the whole fashion figure with flesh tone, you just want to have a hint of color because this is part of drawing very quickly, you do not want to spend an hour on a drawing. So let us assume our light is coming from the left side. So, we are going to color flesh tone in, but we are going to do on the right side because the light is coming from the left. What you are going to do, is just highlight there and then do it down here just enough for how you want it, and right here on the right, always stay on the right because that is where the light is coming from, right again and then even here you can do just a little hint, okay. That is how, we apply flesh tone and now I am going to show you, how to put facial features and the eyes are always half way down the head, so this is the top of the head, this is the chin, the eyes will be on the half, so what you can do with the fashion eyes is you just want to draw something simple. You can do that or you can even do this and just keep it like that, and then what we are going to do is add a touch on the lips. You just want to add some color, okay, and then if you want some definition, you just highlight it and that is pretty much it, and that is how you draw flesh tone and facial features.
