Was out to lunch with mom and saw this 6 inch long mantis chilling on a pillar! Biggest one I&#8217;ve ever seen! I love how he&#8217;s changed color, even adding speckles to his wings to blend in. #creatureinspiration #nature

Writing with Color: Description Guide - Words for Skin Tone

We discussed the issue of describing People of Color by means of food in Part I of this guide, which brought rise to even more questions, mostly along the lines of “So, if food’s not an option, what can I use?” Well, I was just getting to that!

This final portion focuses on describing skin tone, with photo and passage examples provided throughout. I hope to cover everything from the use of straight-forward description to the more creatively-inclined, keeping in mind the questions we’ve received on this topic.

So let’s get to it.

"She had brown skin.”

  • This is a perfectly fine description that, while not providing the most detail, works well and will never become cliché.
  • Describing characters’ skin as simply brown or beige works on its own, though it’s not particularly telling just from the range in brown alone.

These are more rarely used words that actually “mean” their color. Some of these have multiple meanings, so you’ll want to look into those to determine what other associations a word might have.

Hey, everyone!  I wanted to give you all a closer look at the Rewards I have available for my Kickstarter project as well as to answer some of the FAQ’s I’ve gotten.  

Rather than just rely on the examples I have online, have a closer look at the Rewards ‘in the flesh’, so to speak!

Stay tuned afterwards for a laugh!;)

Only 3 days remain as of today!  Remember to share this project with others who might be interested.  Every little share helps!

Signal boosting! My Kickstarter is over in 3 days and is nowhere near to being funded. Re-blog if you can!  Let’s give it a last minute push!
