Thank you for creating the In yo face class! I studied so hard and learned so much from it! There were a few things that I felt stuck on.

Face creases!
When I try to draw creases in the face, even with ref, they look weird. Like the smile lines in the self portrait. Or nose wrinkles in disgust. Or brow creases in anger.
It limits my expressions to the very subtle ones--hint of a smile, slight eyebrow shift, etc. Or else a stronger expression that looks off.

Skin color! (or any color in the image)
Skin colors in photos aren't that exciting, and when I try to change them in my painting, they aren't really that great. It seems there are thousands of ways to paint beautiful skin, but millions of ways to paint weird skin. And weird skin just kills a face. What are a few rules of thumb for coming up with good color?

It probably all comes down to shaky fundamentals, but any ideas would be awesome.

you are better than me already so all my tips are shaky - but from my experience creases got better when i concentrated on the highlight instead of shadow - so instead of making a lot of dark lines for creases i concentrate on the highlight above the crease and it works a bit better.
