Supplement for Section II of the Skin tutorial. Its much easier to see the compare the colors for the different skin tones in this format.
This is not the tutorial itself!
Please read the tutorial in full to get the most out of this supplement image! Section I: Skin Basics Section II: Skin tones
Section III: Background color and ambient light [coming soon]
Section IV: Blending and texturing [coming soon]
If you are having a hard time understanding Section II (and dont feel bad if you areits 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: Color Theory Resources
Thanks for reading
I hope it is helpful.
