Tiny Tips: Five-colour-trick by Ranarh Tiny Tips: Five-colour-trick by Ranarh
When I was starting out, I used to block in a base colour, slapped some black on the dark and some white on the light side and blend it, all at 100% opacity, of course. Blending a cel-shaded picture however looks terrible, so: Use plenty of colours. Paint, and don't let some buttons in the toolbox dictate your work style. And stay away from the airbrushes for shape defining.

"Ranarh's tiny tips" is a collection of iddy-biddy tutorials, each containing small bites of advice anyone can chew, aimed at beginner's level artists. They are not software-dependent. If there's a problem you have, something you feel someone should finally explain, or are just curious what I have to say on a particular artistic issue, feel free to tell me.


You'll find the whole Tiny Tips Collection, plus some full-grown walkthroughs in my tutorial section. Check out my blog and website for exclusive tutorials, walkthroughs, and tips.

should one pick...
"Complementary color to the light's color"
or, "Complementary color to the object's color", actually? I saw a tutorial on painting a red apple, which it said to use green as the complementary to object's color.

I've read somewhere that complementary colors are mere colors to use for "Muting" the saturation of object being lit. :o

and more addition to the red blush, its either the human skin properties or make-up, and all that things to mind when one paints... sometimes I just feel lost in it. :lol:
