Skin Tones/Flesh Tones

Written by Jinny Brown

Question:

How can I find life-like skin tones in Corel Painter?

Response:


I don't know if this will help, but installed with Painter X is a folder containing extra Color Sets. One of them is named Flesh Tones.colors. It's located in the following Painter X application/program folder (and is probably available in earlier Painter versions' Color Sets folders):

Painter X > Support Files > Color Sets


Also, a couple of tutorials by Ron Lemen:

Skin Tones Part 1

Skin Tones Part 1, Painting Heads


And...

Bruce Beard's Hair and Skin Color Charts at RetouchPro


A
six-page thread on the subject of Skin Tones with lots of good information and demonstrations:
