Larger version here.
This is a skin tone test I did. I tried to do it visually appealing, without resorting to using very high contrasts. I wanted it to have a somewhat etherreal feeling to it.
I didn’t use any reference either, so it’s not really photoreal. But I think it’s not too clumsy either. I used more subtle features, so the character is a bit androgynic.
Maby i’ll do it in oils, and call it contemporary?
