Basic Coloring Tips - A TextBasic Coloring Tips - A Text by ToolKitten
so, lately ive been getting (almost daily) notes from deviants asking on coloring tips. and while i never mind helping others and thats one of the biggest foremost reasons im on dA, i find that im repeating a lot of the same basic tips. so i thought it might be helpful to some of you if i were to just make some of this general knowledge public and...whatnot.
so first thing i always get are people asking me how i pick colors?
first thing i always say is, color theory! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_theory http://colortheory.liquisoft.com/ and http://www.colormatters.com/colortheory.html
that last one has a good little mind blowing point there. see the one showing the plant? "A color scheme based on analogous colors" a lot of people want to use just a lighter shade to color, or a darker one, sometimes using white or black (or burn and dodge, shame on you! lol) but the colors there are a more blue green through a yellow green, it changes shades and doing so makes it much more believab

For Interested Commissioners
Ok so first of all, you have to check-out my gallery and see what kind of stuff I do . Also, im not really super speedy so if you want to commission me, you have to be prepared to wait for weeks.
Please keep all commission negotiations between notes. I will send my PayPal email once the negotiations are finished. Please provide the necessary references or lengthy description of what you are commissioning me to draw for you. The more references the better.
I will send you a rough sketch of what I've worked on. Any changes needed to be made will be at this moment. No later than that, because once you've approve, I will start on the line-art.
Payments are through installments. Upon finishing the negotiation, I must receive half of the payment. If I don't receive it, I won't start working. The other half of the payment must be sent to me after I finished the lineart,, that is before the coloring process
Just note me for details or email me at email@example.com with this format:
