Here’s an attempt to demonstrate how i color skin. it’s quite basic, but hopefully it will help anon, and anyone else who’s curious! for anyone who doesn’t know i use manga studio ex 5. please click on each image for the caption!
some basic tips:
1. don’t shade with grey or black. it looks awful. i go for purple/blue-ish hues for shadows.
2, vary your hues. if you stay in the same part of the color wheel things look very flat and lifeless. there are a million tutorials out there for this that show/explain it better than i ever could. i don’t have any examples to link but they’re easy to find.
that’s sort of it, i hope this was helpful. i’m crap at explaining things. a new computer is on my list of things to get when i move, so hopefully i’ll be able to record speed paints and stream - seeing things live is better imo.
