I am going to share how I achieve a green undertone with pale skin coloring on Flora from the Toread line. This is another fun way to color skin on many stamps that portray a mythical fantasy-like image.
You can easily achieve the effect with just a few markers.
The markers you need for this tutorial are: FS1,EB1,EB2,DG1 and blender
Step 1: Lay your undertone first with DG1, preferably where your shading is more likely to sit.
Step 2: Lay FS1 right on top of DG1 to add more depth.
Step 3: Add EB1 around the edge lines of the skin. Adding EB1 will help tone down the brightness from FS1 and keep all the other colors well muted.
Steps 1 and 3 are working on the undertone of the skin.
Step 4: Use DG1 to bring the undertone back.
Step 5: Puling inward with FS1, color toward lighter area (center of face). After you finish this, with a steady relaxed hand, do the “tip to tip” technique with FS1 and blender in a circular motion of highlighted areas.
Step 6: Lay EB2 around the edge lines to cast shadows.
For Step 4 through Step 6: each time you lay a color you want to move to the next shade to color over less of the working area (such as the highlighted parts).
This is the final result and I made an option of flicking small marks around the skin to add a realistic effect with CR3.
I hope my method was useful and easy to understand. Happy coloring!
