Try this COLORING TECHNIQUE – Shadows into Color – @dramaticparrot

In this video I do a little “refresher” course on my substituting colors into shadows(black, grey, darker colors). It’s a way to experiment with complimentary colors, and a new approach on making your drawing pop a little more on the paper.

Coloring and shading is hard. Sometimes an artist needs a little guidance in what colors to use to make their shadows pop a little more. Using complimentary colors are a great way to make your colored drawings pop a little more.
