Realistic Skin Tone Coloring
What you'll learn
- Realistic skin tone coloring of pale, olive, and dark skin, with colored pencils.
- Basic understanding of coloring and shading with pencils.
Learn amazing and easy-to-follow skin tone coloring techniques from a professional artist.
Lisa Mitrokhin - painter, illustrator, author, YouTuber, and instructor - is here to teach you all of her secrets on coloring pale, olive and dark skin tones. All you need to play along is paper, colored pencils (of any brand), and your enthusiasm.
Research shows us that human beings respond to human faces a lot stronger and more positively than to anything else, followed only by dogs, cats and sunsets.
That means that using portraits in your art, whether it's drawing, painting, or coloring, will make your work more likely to be noticed and admired.
This course is structured in three parts, with short (5 to 15 minute) lessons designed for you to follow at your own pace. Lisa starts the course with pale skin tones, moves on to olive skin, and completes the journey with dark skin tones.
Wether you're a colorist, a drawing student, or an accomplished artist, Lisa provides everything you need to follow along. Each skin tone comes with an original Lisa Mitrokhin digital painting, a grey-scale coloring page of the same character, and a sepia coloring page. Print out the coloring pages and color-along with her.
You will learn her color selection strategy, new and different shading techniques, the theory of skin tones coloring, and understand why certain colors appear the way that they do on skin.
After completing this course, you will be able to apply this theory and these techniques to any coloring or drawing.
Important note: this is NOT a portrait drawing course. This course focuses ONLy on skin tone coloring technique. You do not need to know how to draw to take this course.
Who this course is for:
