Miss Fox ... not much red.

on: March 09, 2022, 09:09:40 am
Salutations. Sorry for the bad English. I'll be brief. I wanted to start taking the first steps with using colors. Up until now I have always used very few colors and I would like to make some progress. In this portrait for example (WIP) I wanted to highlight the hair, with some red / orange tints. Similar to fire so to speak. The thing is, I have no idea where to start. I really lack the technical knowledge of the method. Can you give me any advice?

Oh come on, guys. Nobody? Nobody nobody? I'm stuck. Any advice on how to set up a color process?

I would lay down some solid colors / fills first, blocking in the shapes. What kind of color style are you looking for? Are you trying to keep this 8-bit look?

Thank you for answering. Yes I want to keep mostly the black color only. In the end, I'm opting to just color the eyes and add heavier shadows. Let's see what happens.

Maybe I was able to find a way.
