Oh man my head hurts so bad.
But doing this tutorial makes me realize how little I still now about color and I probably made things wrong and those typos and askdkasd blah. But I hope this makes you think more about how color affects other colors in your works! And maybe not use gray to shade stuff. :U;;;
Ugh I need to lay down.
AND SORRY THE FILE SIZE IS HUUUGGEEEEdit 8-17-12:::
HOLY MOLY where did you all come from? I just woke up with over 1K feedback messages and I'm used to seeing less than 10! Aaaa thanks so much! ;; I'm so happy so many people found it useful.
So I went in and fixed some typos, reworded some things, etc, so it's all nice. C':
ALSO for traditional artists, especially painters, the book I mentioned in the tutorial
talks a lot about this stuff.
As for colored dry media: for colored pencils, I was taught in high school to use dark, cool colors along with the compliment color and dark brown as the base for shading. You'll need to experiment with this, since I haven't used it in a long time and I'm not sure how it'll turn out.
And the journey continues on!Edit 8-21-12:::
I... got a Daily Deviation for this?! Wow!! I... I don't think I deserve it but I feel so honored! I feel bad because I wish I could've explained things better in this and cleared things up that were misunderstood... but I'm glad this helped people! That made making this tutorial worth while!
Thank you so much *Tristaeza
for the suggestion and ^Elandria
for the feature!Edit 8-25-12:::
I just wanted to feature a tutorial by ~ArchAntoinette
about this same topic. Before I give the link, I just wanted to point out that even though my tutorial was uploaded first and the format and photos are eerily similar, she touches upon things I didn't talk about, not to mention she's a very talented artist. Check it out! [link]
