How do you know which color is best for the lights and which one is for the shadows depending on the tones of the skin ? I'm an artist too and i always have a hard time trying to figure out which color i should use. (Btw, your art is AMAZING !!!)

The best way to tell you is to show you, so here my friend the former General Obi-Wan Kenobi, who will help:

Skin color (and this pretty much goes for any human skin color in almost any ordinary lighting) is

  • lower saturation yellow at its brightest
  • higher saturation orange/red in the middle
  • lower saturation brown/gray at its darkest

That’s really it?

Skin gets pinker and redder where there are more blood vessels closer to the surface (lips, ears, nostrils, eyelids) and grayer and bluer where there are less, like your jaw.

But even if the person has very dark skin, and they’re standing in some blue light, it’s still pretty likely you’re going to find the same pattern of [low sat, high sat, low sat] or [yellow, orange, gray].

If you’re drawing by observation, and you get stuck, it’s a way to check yourself.

I hope this helps. D:

Just finished Final Justice, and now I only have five episodes left. I remain not okay.

Especially with the last host segment being a parallel of the end of Mitchell.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

I was playing a board game at a convention once where the point was to sneak into a building and extract computer files through interfacing with a neural uplink. It was all very cyberpunk in theme. Towards the end of the game I knew I wasn't going to win and couldn't do much save waste my turns doing useless actions. So on my last turn of the game when I ended my turn I stood up and screamed "I'M INTERFACED" in the middle of the game room, and after a bit of silence someone screamed "BFD!"
