You see the world is full of different people, all shapes sizes and skin colours and this is when we have the potential to cause offence or upset in some quarters. Now I will quite clearly state that I have not provided the following to cause any offence at all, they are merely the results of my observations and thoughts on how to tackle the painting of various regional skin colours.
As we all know tackling flesh is an important part of the painting process and often giving this area a little more attention and work can really bring a miniature to life. I wanted to share some of the colours I use to represent different regions in the world. Now I don't profess to be a dermatologist or even an expert in racial diversity but I have eyes and can read colours fairly well or at least I believe I can, allowing me to create differences in the flesh for variety.
I have created another PDF of the colours used for different regions and this also includes a finished face in the respective colours. I have also made a hand painted chart available and placed these on a new page for you all. Please note as I spend a bit more time on flesh I have created these with a 5 colour palette.
