    That was an interesting article, and pretty well done given the potentially explosive subject matter.

    And I agree with the statement at the beginning: There should be more ethnically diverse miniatures.

    what technique do you use highlighting? layering? blending?
    I tried highlighting but it didn't look right at the end

    I tend to start with a white or light grey undercoat for darker tones anyway. I start with the mid tones, highlight up and then glaze and shade down. i used this article to help me with a few of the pirate avatars i did for my coworkers this summer. They were quick jobs and fun to try out ethnic skin tones which always made me nervous since i could barely do Caucasian tones justice. Here are a few examples:

    When I do skins, I blend the lighter tones after I've done all the shading and whatnot.

    Welcome to C'MON where you will get two completely different techniques (probably more) that are both effective for their own reasons basically keep on trying stuff out until you find what works for you. There is no wrong way to paint.

    Except this maybe:

    Dude, you are a blessing. And I made an account to say that.
    I've just recently begun writing a book (which may become a book series), and I've been having trouble matching skin colours with ethnicities.
    I'm so glad that I have found this. You've made it a hell of a lot easier.
    Also, now that I can match skin colours and ethnicities, I can have an easier time with using BehindTheName Random Name Generator to create appropriate names for new characters.
    I, also, had no idea what Albinism was, either, until you explained it in the article.
    Thank you so much, Chrispy.
    Also, do you know where I can find an article regarding to hair and eye colours for different ethnicities?

    This is a very interesting article, thanks! How did you did the choosing of vallejo colors? Did you try to match colors digitally or just expert eye? One ethnicity I'm missing is amazonians. I think they have a more saturated color than native north americans. Maybe they're close to the pacific islander palette?
