Probably impossible but a client has requested the hand (white male) on the whiteboard animation be ethnically diverse. I need to make it brown.

No roto or masking should be necessary as the hands are already separate layers.

But tweaking hue/sat, tint etc can't seem to get a nice brown realistic skin tone.

Any ideas?

Color Finesse.

But it might be tougher than the client thinks, because the skin undr the fingernails on an African-American hand is lighter than the skin on the rest of the hand. You may be in for some tricky motion tracking and roto work to make the skin color change look convincing. Sorry.

To follow up on the topic. I'm also interested in how and who can find the best change color. I will give examples of how in these music videos made skin color.

Is there a mask made or is it something else? I believe that some of the techniques used in post-production for obtaining such a skin color.
Thank you in advance for your help.
