I came across this really good website dealing with a variety of Ethnic Skintones over at Planet Figure and thought it would be helpful here as well.

Just sent the link to a friend of mine who had stumbled in trying to get the skin tone. Great site. Thanks for watching out.

Great link, Al. Thanks. I'd seen it before but forgot to bookmark it at the time...

I feel I should just add that the African skin tone featured here is a generalization... North African and Cenral folks are darker than Southern Africans... Southern Africans have sort of yellowish-gold undertone to their skin... I'm not sure if that makes sense... It's probably closer to the Carribean/African-American look...

Hi Robert,

Yes, that skintone looks about right.... as for the rest of the hairstyle & outfit... I think his enemies would only die from laughter... :-) Seriously, this "traditional garb" is very untraditional

Thanks Al this is an area that I have often steered away from as I had thought it too difficult. The article is really good and will enable me to have a little more confidence in having a try.

That link no longer works; CMON appears to have reorganized their website. This link: Ethnic Skintones is where I found the article a short while ago.

Hi friends,

Alexander, I've discovered an old tread, but still very useful and the link is still working.

I've saved the page for my reference.

Anyway, a question: Is it suggested to start with dark primer ?
usually I do apply black primer, but maybe it is not the best in all cases

Cheers

Giovanni
