Skin tone and shading practice. It’s so tough to get that slight gradation from light tones to dark, every angle captures light differently. Did all of this in Painter 11 and spent about 60 minutes on this and cropped out the lower legs and feet as I was not happy with the way they were turning out.
UPDATE: Coming back and looking at this piece a couple days later I decided to do some tweaking, something just wasn’t right. Here’s the updated version and I’ll leave the original up for comparison. Which looks better?
