I am sorry for any typos xD


When I color things, I dont really think to much, it runs on autopilot most of the time. I just try diffrent things out til I like how it looks, this shows some of that process I think xD hope its understandable.

What program do you use to change the hue and also how do i make it black and white to check?
Thanks

I use sai and photoshop, both can change hues. CTRL+U  then you can turn the saturation down :3

Thank you for this great tutorial. I mostly use something yellowish for light and some blueish for shaddow, but I will try more variations.

Another thing is if you use black and white and grey and just draw with them, then add a layer and chose the option Color, or copy the black and white layer, lock transparency, and color away. Hope this might help somebody worried they'll mess up colors, if you do just go back to the original layer, duplicate, and try again.

This was really helpful! I've always struggled with finding colors that work together, and making pieces that stand out. Hopefully this will change things :D
