How do all you guys on the forums choose skintones? I can't get it!

I've got a sprites forum that you can submit pixel art in! Plus, you can submit some on the sprites page.

Picking a color that closely resembles your own skin works pretty well.

I've tried, but got very unsatisfactory results.

With the palette window  :crazy:

But if what you get is only unsatisfactory results, what you really need is practice.
After practicing and pixelling for some time, eventually you'll start being able to pick nice palettes.
In the mean time, you could study other people's pieces and check what kind of colors they pick, and learn from that.

There was a topic on this.  LINKAGE:  It's all here
Back from hiatus, just remembered how excellent this community is at forming technique in a fledgeling artist of any kind.
