How does this even work?  With the screen and multiply stuff?  And the light and shade?

At the time I made this, I would use the base colors in the rows from dark to light for practicing painting skintones and seeing what looked right.

The 'multiply/screen' blends on those base colors, were just easier methods for me to choose shades and high lights for when I did anime styled cel-shading.

This in part was made mainly for cartoon/anime cel-shading than any real traditional painting. 

Though now that I have since brought new computers with better screen qualities. And the fact that I'm always practicing with various color blends; I've looked over this thing and I believe it's in need of an update.

I'm just curious, do you use the tones from an entire row for one person's skin tone or is each circle it's own special skin tone range? I absolutely SUCK at picking skin tones so I have no idea @_@

:iconbutterfly--empress:
Butterfly--Empress Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have it set as both actually. It depends on what I'm using it for. If i'm doing a painting, like a realistic painting, I'll use the whole row. If i'm doing something like throwing on cel-paint, i'll only use just one of the circles.

But half the time, I don't use it in that way either. If I feel the need to, I'll pick another color close to the main colors i'm using if i need another tint, shade or hue. ^^ and other times, I'll just use colors not from this palette at all. 

There's no wrong way to pick and choose colors as long as you have a good grasp of color theory. There's a lot of tutorials out there that help! ^^
