Hello everbody! So if any of you have been up to date in the hamilton fandom, you know theres been a lot of discorse lately, one of the main things being skin color.
So, after seeing @johnlaurensprotectionsquad ‘s lin comparison color pallete, i decided to make a color palette for some of the Hamilcast.

For this, i will take two pictures per cast member and pick three shades per picture. I will use a picture with not as much lighting or edititng ( resulting in a darker looking skin) as well as a picture with lighting, causing a lighter looking skin. After, i will blend the resulting six shades together to get one final shade for each cast member.

here is a list of the pictures i used: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-6huosA3DetZpknjLZGt-Z_6xKjiPwHbujnDChs30Gs/edit?usp=sharing

These are the results: 

And, if these arent totally accurate, thats okay. I only reffered to two pictures, so please keep that in mind. There would be so many more skin colors if i had refered to more pictures per person.

Have a good day y’all <3
