Mood Lighting notes

Well yeah this just about says it all. I feel so weird when people comment on the color on pieces like this, so I'm getting my obscenely easy process secret off my chest.
Love to see anything people do with this!

question: In the flats, do you fill them by their original base color? Or sort of eyeball the color they'd be in a "blue" or dim-lit environment?
toerning's avatar
Even simpler than that, really.  Start with blue, and then go "okay skin is warm...what's a color that's a little warmer than blue?  Grey.  Cool."  And then go like that.  At the flats stage, I'm just working with warmer/cooler than ____, blank being the base color.

Thanks for the question!
