darkkkk definitely. with lighter characters there's a much bigger spectrum of shades you can use but with darker it's hard to make it look exactly how you want it to

I'm not very good at shading in general, but I find lighter colors harder to shade because I usually use a dark purple on multiply to shade and it looks like overkill on light drawings. If I lighten the opacity of the layer, though, the darker colors don't show up as well so I usually have to make another layer. It's complicated gahhh.

Dark colors because it's hard to see the shading. D: 
I hate that, it's so annoying. >.<
