Yes, it is time to start our third challenge over at Make It Colourful. Make it Colourful is a FUN place where color addicts gather to learn as well as be challenged to take our skills to the next level.
I am so happy to to be a part of the Make It Crafty Inspiration Team. It is nice to be challenged and to and learn to techniques from a talented group of Color Artist. You can learn too just by joining us!
We have an easy challenge and a hard challenge this month. The easy challenge is to color a skin tone with colors you don't normally use. The hard challenge is muscle tone.
I wanted to attempt the muscle tone. I admit it isn't done as well as I would have liked. But that is what this challenge is all about. Learning :) I am proud of myself for trying!!
I started with a spare image and marking where I wanted the shadows with a gray marker. This helped me to visualize before moving on.
I find using W1 in the shadows of the skin adds more depth and contrast. I will sometimes blend it out with E50 or 51 if needed.
Here is a the color palette.
