Default Two shading questions

Hello all,

I'm looking to finish a scene with a guy I created. I've got him all posed and ready to go to add shading and what not but before I do I have a question for you guys.

First is that I've never done shading myself. I'm looking to make a realistic skin shader but don't have a clue where to start. Can anyone help me out with that?

Also when I created the guy He's one polygonal object. If I apply one shader to him his entire body will be covered iwth it. I'm looking for primarily his face and neck to be a skin tone and the rest to be a different color and texture like an undergarment. Is there anyway to apply two shaders to the same object without overlapping them or will I have to take an alternative approach?

You can apply different shaders to your object by simply selecting the faces you want and applying the shader to them. As for the skin shader, take look at here: http://www.optidigit.com/stevens/tutorial/workshop.html (scroll down to the bottom)
