I tried watercolors again after 6-7 years. It was hard mixing skin tones ;A; First 2 drawings I did last night and today. ^^
And last one is a compilation of my Yoosung drawings in 1. Watercolors 2. Colored pencils 3. Markers <3 I love love him.
I post most of my stuff on my:
All bodies are different. Some bodies have scars. Some have freckles. Some have birthmarks. Some have dark skin, light skin, medium skin, mixed skin, two-toned skin, etc. Some have tattoos. Some have piercings. Some have hair. Some don’t. Some are different looking. Some bodies are made different. Some are missing pieces. Some have extra pieces. Some bodies are hand-made by surgeons and doctors. Some bodies are fought for. All bodies are strong. All bodies are worthy of respect, love, and care. All bodies are different. Most importantly, all bodies are beautiful.
nA/N: Hey, lovebugs! I just wanna thank you all for the feedback and hope you enjoy part four. Remember, 100 notes for the next chapter and make sure you drop feedback in my inbox. This ones a bit longer since some requested for it to be, so i hope you guys like it.
Imagine: Being turned into a vampire by your mate, Alec…
Warnings: Violence, mentionsof blood, swearing
It was as if you’d fallen into a pit of fire, that enveloped your body from head to toe. You wanted to scream, thrash around until you were free of the pain…but you were completely paralysed. The inside of your body was a harsh contrast to the inferno waging on the outside; you were freezing from the inside out. A cold liquid seemed to be coursing through your veins, turning your insides to ice. The chill seemed to slowly sedate the flames, gradually extinguishing them to a tingle, and then nothing.
I’ve been workin on these guys for four days, and after having to restart due to some unfortunate clay-burning, they’re finally done! Rick, Morty and Summer, all made out of Sculpey clay! They’re hand-painted and varnished, too! I’m really happy with how these guys turned out! I based them off of the Funko “Pint-Sized Heroes”!
Rick was one of the hardest to paint. I actually ran out of paint while making him late at night and had to stay up until the store opened to get some more, because I had dumbly already mixed his skin tone and couldn’t let it dry out.
Morty actually got burned a bit in the oven, so he’s a little lop-sided. I probably would have redone him if I hadn’t already redone all three of them previously due to our new oven turning my first batch of figures into charcoal! 😅
Originally, I was going to have Summer have an open-mouthed smile, but I had a lot of trouble with the mouth being way too big when I tried to fit in the Rick-and-Morty-style teeth, so I went for a closed-mouth smile instead. In hindsight, it may have looked better with the smile lines they have in the show, but I suppose I’ll know that for next time!
Colorism is an issue, especially for countries with mixed skin tones. No. It isn’t that it is not frowned upon in Asia (as I’ve
read some people say) it is an accepted mindset that quite plainly, sucks. It
is truly more about your color and what it means as opposed to what race you
are form. It is sad how some people still equate lighter skin colors with people
who are more learned and urbanized. Here in our country it roots from the idea
that those with darker skin tones work in the fields or by the seas while those
with lighter skin tones spend days working in doors. This is also the reason
why in some countries like Korea, Japan, Philippines, whitening creams are all
That is the root and it is stupid and it should stop. It
would be hard for this mindset to just abruptly die, but seeing all skin colors
as beautiful and understanding that it does not define what you do and what you
CAN do can be a start.
On Bangtan having preference:
This question of ideal lover (no, not just girl as Yoongi
have stated clearly in the past) should never be asked. No matter how many
times they get asked this, they always have to create a BS statement that would
have to be vague enough for any fan to fit in anyway. So what is the point?
Everyone is allowed to have ideals and preferences, but when
you are being followed by millions of people worldwide, saying something that
will hit any type of sensitivities is possible. They have the right to have ideals and preferences especially if it is with respect to the type of lover they hope to have, but do we really need to know? No. It should not affect how we love them or their music. So please, for the love of
world peace and fandom fam love. Just don’t.
On that Japanese article released:
I was surprised when I saw the questions and answers to be
honest, because some of them did look familiar, and yet some where not. The
last part about the member’s relationships with each other was clearly from
their profile release in 2016 BTS Festa. Some descriptions like whether the
girl should be taller or shorter seemed rehashed from a 2014 interview (Jimin
didn’t say short, he said shorter than him, LOL). The jeans or skirt question
has also been answered in a 2014 interview, but I remember Yoongi said skirt
instead of jeans. Even the type of hair and heels/sneakers question has been
old. Of course they answered sneakers, this was in 2014! They were younger
Anyway, on the topic of the fair skin/wheat skin issue.
Based from what I have seen in the article, the responses were all rehashed and
put together in a very shady manner. Taking bits and pieces from wherever and
editing other bits too. But for this question, in my memory, only Kookie and
Namjoon ever mentioned a preference (Kookie – fair skin, Namjoon – pale skin)
and they both received heat for this.
When I read what they answered at first, I was surprised that
the BTS we know today would answer something like this. And that’s the thing, based from the
questions and answers in the articles, it does not seem like they did an actual
interview with the members.
I think the article is shady and that BTS now knows better
than to say anything like that. Unless it is an official update, meaning the interview was shared by either BTS or Bighit, or you have seen and heard them say it (warning sometimes even subs and trans are not accurate), take everything in with a grain of salt.
Staring at the picture in front of him, Misha ran a frustrated hand through his hair before reaching for his phone, finally taking his eyes off the white framed picture, which had consumed his thoughts for the past half an hour, to type out a quick message to his date.
He couldn’t go, he just couldn’t bring himself to do it. He saw it as cheating…despite everything that has happened.
Placing his phone back onto the table, he ran his hands across his face in exhaustion. “Daddy?” The sound of his five year old son standing in the doorway nearly made him jump out of his seat. “What’s wrong?”
Misha weakly smiled, shook his head, and mumbled out a “nothing”. His son rubbed his eyes sleepily as his tiny feet took him closer to his father, tugging on Misha’s pants leg, insisting to be picked up. Glancing down at his son, he smiled a little more. He was a perfect combination of your and Misha’s skin tone mixed as one, tiny freckles lining across his nose and cheeks, topped with your beautiful hair and Misha’s bright glowing blue eyes.
Lifting the tiny, almost weightless child onto his lap, he placed a small kiss to his forehead, reminding him that he loved him no matter what happens. “Why aren’t you asleep?” He asked his son, balancing him on his thighs. “It’s nearly three in the morning,”
“Can’t sleep,” He said, followed by a yawn. Turning around in Misha’s lap, he clutched onto the picture frame that Misha had been staring at, trying to touch your face. “Mummy’s pretty,”
baz is biracial (and I’m going off memory here, but doesnt the book state his mother was “egyptian” or something of the sort?). skin doesn’t magically turn white when you’re dead, which, he essentially is, being a vampire and all. so uh. why is everybody drawing him as super white???
Who do u want to be Reys parents, and who do u actually think they'll be???
What I want: The father to be Ezra Bridger .
Who I think they’ll be: No one that had ever appeared in the Original Trilogy.
 Okay, now before you all go yelling “BUT EZRA IS A POC BLA BLA BLA”, let me draw your attention to the fact that children of a mixed parentage can have skin tone all across the spectrum between their parents’. ➡️ Here’s a perfect, real-life example ⬅️ So, if Ezra “do the do” with a white-skinned human female, it is still probable that he’ll get a pasty-white daughter.
Summary: Phil asks Dan to
model nude for his art final. I’ve seen
loads of prompts like this and never a fic so I thought I’d write it.
Word Count: 1.5k
Warnings: Minor swearing
Phil hurried along, clutching his sketchbooks close to his chest, trying
not to drop them. He had art class
starting in a few minutes and he could not be late again. Luckily he made it with a few seconds to
spare, sliding into his seat as the class began.
Their class had been doing a unit on the human body recently. It had been Phil’s favorite unit so far as he
never got tired of drawing faces. He
could draw the same one dozens of times yet never get tired due to the endless
variations and expressions.
Hi there! Thanks for your question. I don’t have these down to an exact science, but there are just a few colours I tend to use for skin tones with different ratios for each. I’ve tried to break it down according to how I think about them - I’ll first figure out whether the person is cool or warm-based. Cooler skintones have more blues in their undertone, and warmer have pink/yellow undertones, and there’s also the occasional neutral skin tone that almost reads as a green (sometimes found in olive-skin types). I always start with a very, VERY light wash of a colour, and this could be either a pale version of their final skintone or the undertone - usually a blue, yellow, or red. Afterwards I’ll start layering colours on top of that, to finally reach the darkness of colour I want. The colours used for the images below are lemon yellow (cool yellow), new gamboge (warmer yellow), quinacridone red (warmer red), quinacridone magenta (cool red), phthalo blue, and burnt umber in Daniel Smith watercolours. Sorry for the wonky face drawings, but here we go:
A very, very watered down mix for those who pretty much burn if they go out in the sun, new gamboge & quin. red. These types are very pale and tend to be bright pink-based. I’d say you could get away with the skin base being the white of the paper and just use straight-up watered down red for the very porcelain.
A darker version of above - starting to use more yellows in the mix. New gamboge & quin red. Still pink-based.
Starting to use more yellows here, with lemon yellow coming into the mix alongside new gamboge & quin red.
This is the same exact mix as above, except I layered down lemon yellow first, and then the mix of new gamboge and quin red on top of it later. It’s similar but reads more yellow.
Getting into the more olive-skinned territory with the addition of phthalo blue.
More blue, with new gamboge and quin red, and darker make a tanner skin tone.
Started using burnt umber into the mix for a richer colour, leaning red here with new gamboge and quin red.
A darker almost brick-coloured skin tone, with new gamboge, quin red, phthalo blue, and quin magenta coming into the mix.
Reddish undertone with new gamboge, quin red & magenta, phthalo blue.
Gold-based undertone - this one’s just new gamboge and burnt umber.
More neutral undertone with new gamboge, burnt umber, and phthalo blue.
Dark skin with blue undertones - burnt umber and phthalo blue with the smallest smidge of quin magenta.
I’ll usually put a bit more saturation into the skin tone mix for blush and lips, and some blue into the shadows. Again, definitely start light and layer layer layer until you find the colours you like. Experiment with what you have and see what works for you. Hope this helps!
I’m a novice artist and work with physical mixed media.
I’m experimenting and trying to educate myself when drawing, and especially coloring, PoC characters, but I appreciate any tips or advice people have if they want to share.
I primarily use watercolors and Copic markers.
I’m relatively new at playing with color and mixing skin tones, and my watercolors are coming out different every time. I bought some skin tone markers I liked recently, but those markers don’t mix well with the Copics and there are only six colors. (They’re both alcohol based markers, but they don’t like each other, so the blending doesn’t work well.)
I’m frustrated with the limited amount of skin tones you can buy ‘out of the box’ and when I try to mix skin tones with watercolors they come out different every time. Again, I’m trying to educate myself too, but if anyone has any tutorials or products they recommend for diverse skin tones I’m all ears.
I want to make sure my PoC characters look as smooth as my white characters. I’ll keep practicing.
Even as light skinned as I am, going to a basically all white school made me feel like an outsider. I don’t even know how many times I cried over my hair when I was younger, never feeling beautiful until I took the hours to straighten it.
I’m a black/puerto rican/white mix
I’ve always felt like an outsider because of this; I’m the sort of middle ground that leaves me to be accepted by neither. But that’s okay, because maybe I’m not white enough, or black enough, or hispanic enough, but I’m all woman, and I am beautiful.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget this, but today is the day for all women to realize that they are all amazingly strong goddesses.
(P.s: I’m cuter in person)
