From what my ever-numbed brain can compute....its about 4 different methods of blending colors....I was trying out with the first one but it wasnt that smooth.

But it took a rather suprising twist...I found out (finally) colors! I think the initial process of choosing colors essential, as Enayla puts it so many times through her widespread tutorials.
You can have a great shade...but if the combination of colors is bad..then everything is gonna be bad.

Looks like Linda has always used the skintones as a practive .Its intriguing to find how Lilac and Terracota colors can give vibrancy.

and there are two tones for shadow

I wanna try the other 3 strokes.....but I gotta sleep....

Fabianv:
It looks like you've got the blending technique down pat, but you're painting is lacking saturation. The animated gif I put up demonstrates the point Linda made in her notes about letting your brushes make all the blending choices for you. You'll notice that at step 3, the gradient area has lost all sense of saturation, so it's looking very dull. Adding that awfully hot pink to the transition area makes the formerly dull transition look a lot more vibrant. Granted, the color choice was very exaggerated, but the point stands.

In the case of your painting, the shadow areas, in particular, are very desaturated and, hence, muddy-looking. You also have a fairly low range of values. Try pushing the lights and darks more, and adding some saturation back into the picture.

Speaking of alternative blending methods, Don Seegmiller's Digital Character Design & Painting book (Photoshop CS edition) discusses using the Healing Brush to blend between colors. Pretty interesting method, too.

my guess, he lasso's and then paiants into the selections using different source colours for the different lights in the scene. The overall shapes are well defined, but heavy smudging makes it interesting in the transitional areas.
