A quick tutorial made with support from my patreon! A quick cheat/trick to make cool skin tones and stuff
Some extras to the tutorial:
♦This is just a quick shortcut. If you want, you can pick colors manually after studying this method. Study the masters and study other digital drawings. Artists from the baroque era, romanticism era, and chiaroscuro paintings use the color zones the most, so you might wanna search for that! Artists like Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Leutze, etc can help.
♦ As mentioned, the zones vary on skin tones, gender, and age. Females are less likely to have blue tones on their upper lip and jawlines because they lack beard, and children are more likely to have more red tones in their cheeks.
♦ Don’t get discouraged, just play with your color pallette, color pick as often as you can and just drop colors! if it’s not looking ok or natural to you, just paint over it and start again, it takes time to get an eye to pick colors manually or polish, so hopefully this quick workaround can help you get used to it.
♦ The rest of the body tends to have color zones too. Red is more prominent on palms, soles, and joints, for example. study bodies to understand these better
♦ study faces and bodies. In real life, these color zones aren’t as prominent due to the amount of cells and tissue lying underneath our skins, but art is stylization, so take advantage of it and use it on moderation! It’s meant to be subtle, so try to avoid doing this :P
