Does anyone can tell me how to do realistic skin tones in Pastel?
Thanks for your inputs,

Wish I knew!! I hope someone here can give insight into it. I personally plan to visit the library and see if I can get some ideas.

This question comes up from time to time - take a look at my answer in this thread:

Edited to add that I am of the view that you can make flesh any colour you want so long as you get the tonal values (lights and darks) correct. :)

Thanks Sandra! It does help to see things like that! Have bookmarked this thread. It's amazing how many colors you can use to come up with skin tones and other things too!
