Hello everyone! I’m Mindy Baxter from MyCreativeScoop.com, I’m new here on the Honey Bee Design Team. I’m so thrilled to be here and share my Copic Coloring advice with you all. Today I’m sharing a Copic Marker Tutorial – Coloring Skin Tones.
I want to share with you how you can create different ethnicities using 1 color combo! Yes, only 1! So let’s get started!
Photo Step 1: Add R22 to your image for some rosy cheeks.
Photo Step 2: Then go back over with R01 to blend out the R22.
Photo Step 3: Use E13 in the areas shown. Adding more or less depending on how dark you want the skin.
Photo Step 4:Add E11 to your image based on how dark you want the skin.
Photo Step 5: Same thing with E00. You want to make sure you’re flicking in towards the center of the face.
Photo Step 6:Repeat with E000. If you’re going with a very light skin tone you will use E0000, after E000.
Photo Step 7: Then, for the next layer start with E17 in the shadowed areas.
Photo Step 8: Blend out a little with E13, depending on how light or dark you want the skin tone.
Photo Step 9: Repeat with E11.
Photo Step 10: Same thing, repeat with E00 flicking in towards the center of the face.
Photo Step 11: Still flicking towards the center of the face with E000.
Photo Step 12: Again with E0000, if you want a lighter skin tone.
Photo Step 13: Fill in the back of the mouth with W7.
Photo Step 14: Color the tongue with R37
Photo Step 15: Color the hair with colors, E30, E33 or E17, E13 or W7, W5.
Note: After I was finished I added E13 and E00 to the corners of the mouth making their cheeks look chubby. I also created the background using my Copic Markers, as well!
I hope you enjoyed my Copic Marker Tutorial – Coloring Skin Tones. I look forward to posting more Copic Tutorials to share with you all.
