I didn’t feel like taking a picture of a person and then coloring them in. I know that skin tone can be kind of a struggle, but I got it figured out for this “little” guy. When i was finished coloring him, I had many different color layers. For each color layer, I did a solid color layer, changed the normal to multiply, and then layer masked the layers. I was easier to fix if I colored outside the lines with the layer masks. Also, I really didn’t like adding shadows. Last year when we did this project I just didn’t add any shadows. For this photo, however, It was easier for me to add shadows because it was a doll and not a real person. It was also nice because I looked back at the original image and mocked the shadows kind of.
