so i finally decided to make a post dedicated to advice for coloring and shading! hopefully this is will help some people with their coloring because i know this is most people’s weak points in drawing. but don’t worry!! limlim is here to help!!!!!
i let people on twitter suggest what i should cover, so some things might be a bit random. here’s the topics covered (in order):
- Choosing colors for shading and highlighting
- Use of different layer settings (overlay/multiply) and adjustments
- Color choices for red/blood
- How to color a kappa (kinda goes over my drawing process too)
- Shading hair sorta
this only covers some of the things people asked since i got kinda tired of talking about colors. hopefully, i’ll make a second post in the future
i should point out that just reading this won’t make you better at coloring or anything unless you put these things into practice. experiment helps a lot, too. maybe you don’t like what i’m doing, so you can tweak what i do a bit to achieve what YOU want in coloring. these aren’t set rules or anything, just what i think and do when coloring.
also, this is pretty tl;dr so make sure you read this when you’re not tired or sleepy!!! (i’m serious. i don’t think i would want to read something this long either)
