So I haven't taken any progress pics for Chick. Lots of work since last night - I could get away with highlighting the hair and doing a rough face, and touching up the shoes. I've already added lipstick

Super happy with the sweater texture - palomino gold, buckskin pale and a wash from a brown made with PG and hexed lichen (purple). Shirt LED (autocorrect to "disabled," really?) blue and ghost white, skirt is breonne (autocorrect to "bronze") blue and ultramarine shadow. Hair base is ruddy leather. Intend to go rust brown then lava orange maybe depends what I have handy.

Not ideal, but livable. Looking a little sickly though. Will have to see if eye shadow and some blush help with that? Other suggestions?

Maybe @Pingo

Can talk about a video or thread that refers to traditional skin tone mixing? I think I'm veering too far into yellow, which is why she looks a little undead.

Her skin looks greyish brown, but I think you have the highlights in the right places.  Is it possible to give her a warmer skin tone? Her eyes look good, just need a little neatening up on the bottom.

 

Edit: if you mix white with the ruddy leather you might get a nice caucasian skin color.

Thanks.

I am hoping not to have to redo all the skin. This was a failed attempt at a brown skin tone, so I'm not sure about the ruddy leather recipe. I might try a glaze of a red brown. I just feel there's some counter-intuitive solution to this that I can't think that I might with formal art training.

Try a thin glaze of the ruddy leather over a small area, like her hand.  See if you like that.

It's definitely changed her from 'zombie like' to 'alive'.
