So, I've been looking through your tutorials, specifically the one on skin. I think it's great- it's really good and explains stuff really well (all your tutorials do :) ),but I was having some trouble understanding undertones. How do you identify somebody's undertones? I get it in the general sense, but how can you tell that it will be this shade of a color vs another shade? Thanks so much, you're a huge inspiration and your artwork gets better each time! -anna

Hi! I’m glad the tutorials are helpful!

So, at first glance, its not hard to estimate an undertoneBut it also really helps to use the colour picker  in the most saturated parts of the face (Neither in light or shadow) 

Especially in pictures like these try to avoid the contour area just around the outside edges of the apples of the cheeks incase the model is wearing a lot of blush. Any natural makeup such as foundation or bronzer is fine because it should match the natural colours of the face, unlike blush which is usually a different colour.

These are the colours I picked from the faces. (you can also just eyeball them)

You can use these as your base tones when you paint, but knowing the actual undertone can give the skin a more unified and continuous look. So take the colour you took from the photo and use the full colour adjuster/ picker thing to find the undertone (again, you can just eyeball it unless you want to be super precise).

Some of the colours you find may seem really different from the original image, that’s okay! The colour should represent the mood or the essence of the face, the undertone can be any colour imaginable and one person can have more than one undertone depending on the lighting or the mood you want the piece to have. Giving someone a green or blue undertone can make them look sick. Giving someone a orange or red undertone can make them look warm and inviting. Its up to you! Just having an undertone in your art can make a piece look more realistic and give your art a larger range of skin tones.

Once you do this enough times it becomes a lot easier to eyeball the undertones and make them up for original drawings and characters. Do whatever feels right!

I hope this helps!

What a lovely guide! I’m always struggling to pick the right undercolor for my skintones

my partner tried to call me a sweetheart the other day but he misspelled it and I read it as “sweetbeard” and then I decided that this is what dwarf couples call each other

so, naturally, here are two dwarves on a date
