Anonymous said: do you have any advise for coloring darker skin tones?

- Dark skin have “stronger” highlights, but they’re at the same time not “larger”.
- Cooler hues like blue and low-saturated purple works well as a base color and for shadows.
- Don’t be afraid to add some red tones on cheeks and lips etc, just don’t use light pink for that.
- Read This tumblr post in how to avoid whitewashing the skintone. (it’s mainly about photo-editing but useful for artists as well)
When in doubt, use a reference:
(by Nathan Fowkes. His blog is great source for inspiring colors!)
I threw together a step-by-step in how I sometimes paint dark skin, I hope it’ll help you out:
