If it's not too much to ask, could you explain how you add color to your pictures after making the value map? Like do you use layer blending modes and color over top? Or do you just start from scratch somehow? The step from value to color completely boggles my smol brain. (눈_눈)

I don’t think I’m the right person to answer this question as I don’t colour with values? aka painting the pic b/w and then smacking colour layers on top of it with blending modes.  I used to use blending modes for adding shadows (multiply) but I refrain from doing it nowadays.

Sometimes I use the overlay mode for my thumbnail pics to quickly check if my desired colour scheme can work out. In the actual painting process I usually choose the colours myself. If for some reason later on I decide to change/adjust/add colours and I’m too lazy to do it manually I use the overlay layer effect, too. Basically, this is the only effect I ever use.

Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying using blending modes is bad or anything. It’s a great tool for experimenting, learning, quickly fixing one’s mistakes or adding some dope effects!! However, my personal belief is that in the long run an artist should be able to consciously choose accurate colours rather than constantly relying on the ability of the software alone.
