B4 U SAY U ARE BAD AT COLOUR LET ME EXPLAIN TO YOU A THING

I DREW A CAT AND AN APPLE

HFFRRRFFFPPPPPFFPPPP LET’S COLOR IT

DEAR SWEET FUCKING JESUS THIS IS HIDEOUS

WHY IS IT HIDEOUS?

BC THIS IS A MISTAKE I SEE PEOPLE MAKE QUITE A BIT WHEN THEY FIRST START COLORING

THEY THINK “OKAY THE CAT IS BROWN WITH YELLOW EYES AND THE APPLE IS RED WITH A GREEN LEAF” AND THEN THEY JUST????? PICK THE COLOR THAT IS THE MOST GREEN OR THE MOST RED OR THE MOST BROWN OR THE MOST YELLOW

THESE ARE WHAT WE CALL COLORS WITH HIGH SATURATION AND HIGH VALUE! THAT MEANS THAT THEY ARE AS FAR AWAY FROM BLACK AND WHITE AS POSSIBLE

HIGH SATURATION COLORS CAN BE USED WELL BUT USUALLY THEY ARE NOT THE BEST CHOICE, AND PICKING THEM FOR EVERYTHING CAN MAKE YR WORK LOOK KIND OF AMATEURISH! SO LET’S TRY THIS AGAIN

OKAY MY EYES ARE BURNING LESS NOW

LET’S TRY SHADING WHOOOOOO

HAHA TA-DA ALL DONE

WAIT. SHIT. THIS ALSO LOOKS HIDEOUS.

IT’S BC I MADE TWO SERIOUS ROOKIE MISTAKES

A. SHADING WITH BLACK, AND B. USING THE FUCKING AIRBRUSH TOOL

DO NOT DO THOSE THINGS BC THOSE WILL ALSO PEG YOU AS A BIG ROOKIE BABY

OH THANK GOD THAT IS SO MUCH BETTER

WHAT I DID INSTEAD WAS I PICKED COLORS THAT ARE A BIT DARKER AND USUALLY A BIT REDDER THAN THE BASE COLOR, AND HIGHLIGHTS THAT WERE LIGHTER AND A BIT YELLOWER THAN THE BASE COLOR

THIS KEEPS COLORS LOOKING RICH INSTEAD OF GREYING THEM OUT 

YOU CAN KEEP DOING THIS IN LAYERS UNTIL IT LOOKS LIKE THIS

YOU CAN BLEND BETWEEN LAYERS IF YOU WANT, TOO

I ALSO CHANGED THE COLOR OF THE LINEART!! THIS OFTEN MAKES THINGS LOOK BETTER AND YOU CAN DO IT W TRADITIONAL ART TOO, IT JUST TAKES MORE PLANNING 

I HOPE THIS HELPS W COLOR AND SHADING

OH AND IF YOU DREW IT ON CHORUS PAPER I KNOW THIS STINKS BUT

EITHER DRAW NEW STUFF OR TRACE IT ONTO NEW NICE PAPER

SORRY 

NO COOL TRICKS 4 THAT ONE

As much as I would love to try different perspectives and stuff, I have absolutely no sense of depth.
