Gong Soldier, or: I Heard the Gongman Call My Name

Having consistently failed to apply Cauciasian skin tones with any sense of artistry, I've turned my hand to other varieties. This gong-ringer turned out darker than I had hoped, so perhaps he's South Asian rather than East Asian.

You'd use that skin tone, perhaps one slightly greener (like an olive, or army green) as the underpainting and then apply thin thin thin light peach and/or even thinner very light yellow ochre mixed with white (maybe half and half) and mix in the tiniest dot of cadmium red to paint over that. I do it all the time. But consider the thinnest paint you can, and then go even thinner than that for multiple layers.
