Sample text

A bright skin tone should always appear as a mass with soft texture. Blend it gently and even out the dark shade, then use the same blending medium on the other areas with a brighter shade. Use the sides of a smudge stick to brighten the spots that needs a gradual adjustment in value. You may think of using an eraser to do this, but the sides of the smudge stick is more than enough to make very little shade adjustment since you only need to lift off a little amount of the lead/charcoal. 34 Keep on smearing the shades until it evens out.

If the skin tone is bright, it is much easier to start with the obvious shades which are the darker ones. This tone will be blurred later on, and will serve as a shade to base upon the other tone values to even out the general skin tone. Use a soft gray charcoal or anything with equal shade. Apply it gently and avoid marking the medium (paper) with too much pressure that may cause a permanent dent. A bright skin tone should always appear as a mass with soft texture. Blend it gently and even out the dark shade, then use the same blending medium on the other areas with a brighter shade.

In this way, the active lines or facial ridges are near the base line which makes the distance (from the base line) easier to figure out.
