Hey Neomae, I was just wondering if you could tell me how you make the necklaces you draw Brooklyn wearing fit in with the picture so well? The necklace on the picture I drew looked off and I was wondering if you could give me a few pointers ^^;

OK, let's see if I can give you some useful hints =)

1) What I noticed about the necklace in your picture is that is doesn't have the same perspective as the character. Therefore the most important thing for you might be to pay special attention to that.
2) The necklace is as much a 3 dimensional object as the character is. Try to show it's shapes in the drawing instead of drawing it flat. If you have difficulties in getting the complex shape of characters or objects right, it might help you to break them down into basic shapes like spheres and boxes. These are easier to draw 3 dimensionally.
3) The necklace has it's own weight and physical characteristics. It will follow the shape of the neck more or less (depending on how tight is is) and it will behave differently depending on the characters pose and external influences like movement or strong wind.
4) The shading of the necklace has to fit the shading of the character – same light source, same hardness and strengh. Also the character might cast a shadow on the necklace and vice versa.
5) Character and necklace are in the same environmental light – therefore the choice of the right colors is important. The color of a character or an object in a scene does consist of the color of the character/object itself (like red for Brooklyn) and the color of the environmental light (e.g. like blue in a night scene) In order to achieve this in my pictures (in Photoshop), I make one layer on top of all other layers and give that layer the color I want my environmental light to be (again e.g. blue for a night scene). Then I play with layer options and opacity until I get the result I want. In addition I also try to already get environmental colors into the colors of the characters and objects during the basic coloring and shading phase.

I hope this was understandable ^^ As English is not my mother language, I sometimes have difficulties explaining things. Sorry about that! I hope I could help you at least a little.
