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!
THIS UNI SESSION IS FINALLY OVER!!! 💕 which means i can post some of my final projects!!
i had the luck to have a class where we had a free subject so i decided to be super self-indulgent with it and made some boards about my boy 93!.. the story is a little disjointed because its a part of a bigger thing going on between him and @dinqo‘s Junjie, but im super proud of how it all turned out still and i hope its at least enjoyable to look at!! 🤖

- long hair was Bad and also Hell she feels so much better with short hair it doesnt get hot
headcanon kageyama views all his friends in terms of food as in when asked to describe them he just uses weird food references. nishinoya-san is like a jalepeno, spicy and small. yamaguchi is either dark chocolate or milk chocolate depending on how much teasing went on that day. daichi is like rice, a staple food. at this point the team has stopped trying to explain to him why foods don’t work as good descriptors and just let him do it
First Aid turned out tinier than I could have ever hoped for and I’m so happy with this development. His armor straight up looks, like…too big for him. Bless this tiny medic. I love him. He’s gonna glue Megatron to a chair to give the big bastard his vaccinations. What a good smol addition to TF: The End / Crying Robots Power Hour.
((HE’S SO TINY HECK!!!!!! Megatron’s gonna get overcharged and start crying. I shouldn’t have drank all the engex. I can’t protect them……..))
And it was true - red was a good colour on Draco. And the dark red jumper with a huge silver D on it that was Molly’s Christmas present for Draco would suit him very well.
Harry’s smile wavered when he noticed that Draco’s eyes had watered a bit. For one panicked moment Harry wondered what was wrong but then Draco clutched the jumper to his chest and hiccupped and Harry just knew.
