Hi ms Era! In shading, can I use just the different shades of gray instead using the dimmest color of the bright colors?
U can use whatever u want, the best part of being an artist is that u can play with it, with a gray scale over flat color give an anime look to your art, with color shading give more organic look to the pic, with complemetary color give a professional look, everything goes in what do u want to do, what to learn or just for fun.
Try your best sweet!!!! =3
