aww gosh, thanks so much, I’m so glad you like my stuff! ;w; As for colour processes, here’s a quick tutorial(??) that I threw together as to how I choose colours? Keep in mind that everyone works differently and I still have so much to learn though, so I can only speak for myself as to how I colour.

I’m going to be using these two pieces for this tutorial!

Dunno if anyone’s interested in these, but this was my latest assignment for CGMA’s Art of Color and Light class- this past week focused on how light interacts with different materials.
It’d be cool to try some different skin tones, I just used my own pasty hand for reference. Maybe even an alien species with non-red blood, so the occlusion shadow glows a different color where light passes through? Would it be purple for Namekians and green for Vulcans? (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ possibilities
Also, the iridescent pearl wasn’t a requirement, but I enjoy Sailor Moon and suffering. If anyone’s got pointers on iridescence, I am all ears over here, because I clawed my way through that one screaming

argyrism asked you:


This may/may not be true for other people, but when I’m wondering about how you choose your colors, I’m wondering about how you make everything, well, harmonic. Noisemaster is a good example of this: he’s got a wide range of colors, but they all work well together, so it doesn’t end up looking garish. So, how do you go about something like that?

Thank you! I want Noisemaster’s pages to look like I’m just selecting colors at random, but it’s really pretty simple. Sure, I use a lot of complementary pairs, triadic colors, etc., but I generally don’t have too much Color Theory Terminology in my head as I’m planning these pages out.
For reference, Pages 447, 448, 451 and 455.
I know I’m not great at technical explanations, but I hope this sheds a little light on what I’m doing!

Hi everyone!! I’ve been getting quite a few inquiries about the brushes I use to paint with, so I thought I’d just relist my favorite sets [as of recently!] in one place for convenience:

Stumpy pencil

Porkbun’s fabulous brushes

Kecky’s brushes [more here!!]

Zhuzhu’s really great brushes

Tardigrad’s brushes

Brushes by Kyle T. Webster [the pastel and dry media brushes in particular!!]

I hope you find that helpful!! ☆SMOOCHES FOR EVERYONE☆

HANDS!!! sorry for my bad hand writing

The point I’m trying to drive home, is that draw things the way that best suits you.  How-to-books had me all mixed up in my teen years, but then I decided to break the rules and do things my way.

galaxyspeaking:

Here ! Since the livestream broke after 15 minutes, I’ve decided to do a little step by step to show you how I color things these days. It’s more of a recollection of tips I’ve learned rather than a proper method, but it can help some of you figure the not-so-mysterious texture thing !

There is a reason I never wanted to do tutorials though, and I need to write it down. I don’t like it when people just use someone’s technique without adding a bit of themselves in it. If it’s just to copy someone’s art, I think it’s a bit unfair for the poor artist who had to come up with a creative way of coloring things to make it work ! Suddenly everyone can do it and the artist’s not special anymore. So please use this with care. Don’t try to just copy, try to understand and re-interpret it !  In the end you’ll be much more pleased with yourself and you’ll get to do your own tutorials :D !
