Something that I decided to post after noticing how much brighter and nicer the colours look on the colour layer of my recent work.
Weh, I personally think that my biggest problem right now is colour, aside from some other anatomy and variety related issues.
Or rather, keeping the colours from being a muddy mess.
Or rather, my undying love for high contrast dramatic shadows, even where I would be better off without them.
I actually often paint using colours from the very start, and I use the grayscale+colours on a multiply layer when I need to do it faster or feel like it, but everything ends up grayish and muddled no matter the technique- I just keep making the same mistakes and can’t break the “DARK SHADOWS AND THE COLOUR BLACK EVERYWHERE” habit. And I keep missing out on simple tricks, like lowering the opacity of the grayscale layer of the above pics, which i probably should’ve done, but didn’t, because I’m a dumb slow learner.
Sighs, somebody kick me in the ass to learn nice bright colours.
Maybe I should start using limited palletes from one of those sites.
Too bad that I have to paint 165654 grayscale BGs for the project now HEH….
