Hey meabhd, do you hapen to have any tips on how i can pick colors more easily because thats just a huge problem for me. I know the basics of color but i cant actually put them to use. Im confident with my line art but the entire drawing starts looking awful when i put color in it.
So a secret. I am rubbish at colour, it’s 100% the thing I struggle most with besides backgrounds but I have learned a cheat from my good friend @magicelum who taught me about how to fuck with gradients (follow him cause holy crap his art is absolutely stunning)
So… I start off with the flat colours and some shadows
For this one I used the gradient tool in photoshop and a red colour on Screen mode.
Then used the same tool but on a different layer on Lighten mode with a blue colour.
Finally I made her hair look all glowy by using a soft brush with a reddy-orange colour over her hair, with the layer on Divide mode.
Now looks all cohesive and like I actually know what I’m talking about when it comes to colour!
@awkweirdworld had basically the same question
