Capture the realistic skin tone of your model with artist Maureen Killaby. Join Maureen as she shows you how to use a variety of pencil leads and sizes to create a range of skin tone values in light and shadow for realistic faces every time. She begins the workshop with gradient exercises to help you understand how values transition across a face. Next she jumps into the faces themselves and covers techniques for light, medium and dark skin tones.
Please note: This workshop focuses on specific skin tones and Killaby does not finish a completed portrait during the lessons. She also does not do a stand-alone chapter on her materials specifically. She does, however, do a great job explaining exactly what tool (lead softness, blending tool, etc) she’s using while she’s working.
