More about watercolour skintones

Skintones arrived, have tried them out and done my usual swatch of the colours.  All pale, but fleshy, so it’s pretty much what I wanted, but they’ll require more work if I’m going to use them for tanned characters like Miguel or Zevran.  Have gone online AGAIN to Artifolk and bought more skintones: a few pencils and two half-pans this time.  Will try to stop for a while and just be content with what I have.

EDIT: New stuff arrived a day later! Swatchin’ time.

A compiled list of the watercolour pencils for skintone I have now collected!

EDIT: Having now received my new colours and swatched them, some are more suitable for skin than others, but I am now satisfied with my skintone range!  …For the time being. For handy reference have a look at the swatch here!
