Skin combinations

Good morning my Copic friends :)
This post is in norwegian at the CMN blog
We have had a lots of questions on more colouringtutorials with Copics and today I will show you four of the skin combination I use most.
When you are new to Copics it can be difficult to chose between all the colours, so this is a way of showing some combination. If you use another one and you think we should know about it, we would love you to tell us!
This posts has a lot of pictures, so I hope you will stay with me until the end!
I have used a digistamp from La La Land for my tutorial.
The image is called Cupid Marci and you find it here
My first combination for skin is:
E 00-000-0000 and E93 for her rosy cheeks.
Start with your lightest colour wich is E0000 and do a layer all over the face,

Lay down your shadows with your darkest, E00.
Blend with E000 and go further in than with E0000
Blend it all together with the E0000.
Repeat from E00-0000 until the face has the colour you are looking for

Give the motiv  lovely rosy cheeks with E93 and blend it in.


 My next combination is:
E 21-51-50 and E93 for cheeks
This is my favorite and a more brown combination.
Make the first layer with the lightest, E50

Then the darkest in the areas with deepest shadow with E21

Blend with E51, but as you can see my E51 was empty... (white nib!)
so my blending wasn't that easy and the result not the best!

Go over the image with E50 and blend everything nice together.

E93 for her cheeks

 Here you see the both combination together:
Which is the best do YOU think?


 This combination is darker and some people use it for a more tanned looking skin
E 13-11-00 and E93 for cheeks


 And this combination is the one I like best for darker skin:
E 57-55-53 and R32 for cheeks
This little Cupic Marci even got her legs and arms coloured ;)


Here you see all my four images coloured
If you can't see the different, from right we have:
E 57-55-53 and R32 for cheeks
E 13-11-00 and E93 for cheeks
E 00-000-0000 and E93 for cheeks
E 21-51-50 and E93 for cheeks
Which is your favorite??
I will try to make a card with one of these beauties one day :)
I will later do a hair tutorial showing some different combinations as we also have had some questions about this.
Have a nice day everybody!
