SKIN: a chart - SUPPLEMENT IMG by navate SKIN: a chart - SUPPLEMENT IMG by navate
Supplement for Section II of the Skin tutorial. It’s much easier to see the compare the colors for the different skin tones in this format.

:skullbones: This is not the tutorial itself! :skullbones:
Please read the tutorial in full to get the most out of this supplement image!

:bulletblue: Section I: Skin Basics
:bulletblue: Section II: Skin tones
:bulletred: Section III: Background color and ambient light [coming soon]
:bulletred: Section IV: Blending and texturing [coming soon]
__

If you are having a hard time understanding Section II (and don’t feel bad if you are—it’s difficult stuff!) take this chart and go through it with a color picker. That should help you a lot in seeing the hue, value, and saturation differences that occur between skin tones, and within the different mid-tone / shadow / highlight ranges.

If color is really difficult or confusing for you, go here:

Thanks for reading :) I hope it is helpful.

I will finish them but I will need to crowdfund them through Kickstarter, once my health is better. :)
