I was banned as a child from the Simpsons. I think I was about 13 when it graced the television sets of country Victoria, so I got probably an extra kick out of drawing Simpsons characters. Although I presume I’m the only person in the world using microsoft publisher to draw cartoon characters for fun.
The closest I could find to the actual skin tone of Simpsons characters is RGB 255-217-15. Having absolutely no training in colour schemes at all, I simply used the “fill colour”, “more fill” then “custom” option to deepen the same hue for shading. I was even more lazy with the red and used the internal red options supplied by Publisher for the shading on the dress. Probably took about 20 minutes to draw.
