Er. Well, I'm not sure how to say this one, so I'll explain what I am planning before asking. I am doing an IG veteran squad based on the members of DC comics Suicide Squad. However, many of the members are of various ethnicities. Could someone point me in the direction of a simple tutorial on how to do non-european skin tones? I am specifically looking for African American and Hispanic skin tones. I'm not the greatest painter in the world, so the simpler the better.

I'm no expert, but it seems to me that a 'neutral' skin tone would be the best place to start, and then darken, brighten, color, etc as necessary using washes and thin application of the appropriate paints/mixes.
