Each month, hundreds of Patreon supporters donate a small amount of money to Muddy Colors, which helps maintain this website, and makes programs like our Rising Stars Scholarship possible. In return for their donations, Muddy Colors provides our supporters with a brand new video each month.

Over the past few years, we have amassed a library of dozens of videos, each one detailing the process of an incredible artist, while they answer questions in a casual interview-type setting. We are really grateful that the support of our readers has made these videos possible, and hope that someday people will look back on them as keepsakes of our artistic generation.

We know not everyone is in a position to donate or purchase one of the videos found in our shop. So as a token of our gratitude, and with the generosity of our supporters in mind, we would like to offer ALL of our readers access to one of our videos today, completely FREE!


Watch as Illustrator and Fine Artist, Howard Lyon discusses how to paint convincing skin tones from a variety of ethnicities. The video begins with a 1 hour lecture, where Howard breaks down Old Master’s techniques for painting flesh in easy to understand terms. Howard then shows you how to implement those same techniques in your own work in a 2 hour painting demo.

He discusses color mixing, color relativity, and how to paint believable skin tones even in unusual lighting conditions. This video is a comprehensive overview of painting realistic flesh tones for artists of all mediums, both traditional and digital.


This video will be available for free for all of our readers TODAY ONLY, so don’t delay… start watching it now!
