So, I went and looked around at how people coloured. And I arrived at a conclusion that highlighting instead of shading works better for me. And this is my attempt at that.
Along with my new find, I learned how important colour theory really is. At first, I thought it was just some technique that makes your art better, but after looking into it (not before drawing this, unfortunately), I realised it was what made your art pleasing to look at. I’m currently learning about it and I feel as though I’ve been colouring wrong my whole life (which I’ve always mentioned…)
Anyways, here’s what I drew yesterday. It was mostly an experiment, but it turned out better than expected (I’m not saying it’s great though)… And yes, I know the shading is off in a lot of places.
