How can I find life-like skin tones in Corel Painter?
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
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:
WetCanvas! Portraiture > Portrait Classroom

Tutorials and color charts credit go to Ron Lemon, Bruce Beard, LacyLew, and others in the Wet Canvas Portraiture Forum's Skin Tones Portrait Classroom thread.
