Thank you so much for this! I've never been good with shading with skin tones, and even though it seems really simple in theory, having you lay it out like this makes much more sense.

If you're drawing from a reference photo, try to use grids. There are many tutorials on deviantart that can show you how :)

This is amazing thank you! I'm in my last year of school and we've only done coloured pencils very rarely and my teacher now has to be strict on letting us do our own things but I was at a loss on skin tones - this really helped, thank you!!

what colours should i use for light anime skin like Naruto or Onepiece.

BKLH362 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't know anything about anime, but if you're asking about light skin, I think it's better not to use the dark brown much and focus on using the lighter brown and beige

does this work for dark skin?
If I was drawing black circles, How would I do that?
Reply
:iconbklh362:
BKLH362 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
If I was coloring dark skin, I'd use the brown pencils, maybe add a little black but not as a main color.
If it wasn't for skin, if you just want to color something black, then use black and gray.
