chinese and japanese caricatures

Post by flatcap on Thu 10 May - 16:55

hi all, looking for advice, got the opportunity to get a pitch caricaturing in colour, but most of the customer base will be chinese and japanese tourists what do you guys use as skin tones to get a semi life like skin tone i'm messing with artstix and pastels but they keep coming out to yellow and it looks to stereo typed and quite frankly is offensive to me so i'm sure it's going to be offensive to my customers which i do not want
hope that makes sense any ideas appreciated

Fist of all congrats! Dunno, tough call really as I think most of us here do our coloring electronically. Surely if you shopped around you could find a more subdued pastel that would meet your needs?

thanks simon, i will have to try and look around a bit more, i'm using lemon shade and although i can get it to blend with yellow ocre and dont look bad it is adding to much time to the shading which is not good in a live event
