dark skin tone by ceruleanvii dark skin tone by ceruleanvii
I wrote this up awhile back and completely forgot about it! When I was working on this image I wanted to see what others had done, but I had a very difficult time finding painted portraits of people with darker skin tones. Lots of photos, but not a lot of paintings. So I thought I'd share what I figured out while I worked on it - hope it's helpful.

I totally wish you had a video tutorial for this so I could see your technique.

Wow. That is AMAZING!!! How did you get it to the detail where you can even see the pores ? O_O

Awesome.
I used this on my latest piece - still getting the hang of it (just getting into colouring humans) but this tutorial was super helpful. :)
