This was really popular over on Twitter, so figured I'd post it here too xD

I wanted to do a skin tone study with the ten set of Crayola markers. Shame the paper is so bad, really couldn't take any more layers. Would love to try this again on better paper, but in the mean time, here is my attempts at skin tones! IRL it's /slightly/ less zombie looking, haha.

If y'all like my Crayola art, I have a print giveaway happening right now over on Twitter! ^^

Thanks for lookin'! Ok Hand Emoji

Aw thanks x'D They take a bit of getting used to, haha. I still have a lot to learn before I'm more comfortable with them :)

I'm impressed that you did what you did (good color mixing!), but was disappointed when I found out you used only the ink as "watercolors" and not the markers themselves.

Still though, Thumbs Up

Thanks! :) I used them as markers on the darkest tones/areas. I think I was too skiddish xD But I definitely would be open to trying this again, pushing myself further with it.

I love this picture so much. It reminds of another really symbolic photo we had in our biology book. Well done.
