My style is simple so I try to only capture the important lines that describe the face I’m trying to draw. Then once the line work is were I want it I let the color highlights and shadows do the work. I try to figure were the light source is and just do what makes sense on the entire character but I’m easy with it. I don’t follow any “rule” to the T. Hope that helps!
First thanks for checking out my blog! As for your question, for me it’s just visually appealing. As I draw I may change shape and size but the red works with most skin tones so as for a visually appealing choice red works on skin. Maybe with a non-human character it will change I won’t know until I draw it :)
Feel free to reblog my posts and spread the word! Hope my info helped and if you have more questions please ask!
