The Big Colour Tutorial by nataliebeth The Big Colour Tutorial by nataliebeth
Okay, so this was another one of those small tutorials that became massive. :faint:

As a disclaimer, I've never had lessons on digital painting, or much in the way of colour, so if there are any inconsistencies with my spoken truths - then please forgive me! Also, I know there are spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, but I accidentally lost all my layers and so couldn't edit a number of the sections.

But now that's out of the way, thankyou for taking the time to read this, or view it! I hope that this helps in some small way or another, my last tutorial absolutely blew my mind with the response, so I thought I'd create another one and elaborate more on the art of painting. This tutorial was made and based with GIMP, so some things may be different for photoshop users, but the basics are all the same.
I will next be doing a tutorial on how I draw proportions, which has been asked of me on many occasions, Ill hope to have it out in the next month - thank you for all my faithful friends. :bow:

Feel free to leave feedback, and any questions and ill try my best to answer them. :)

This was awesome, I knew the stuff about the primary, secondary and tertiary colours etc. from my art lessons (traditional art) but I never thought about applying it to digital art. Thank you so much! (And the setting out of the tutorial was beautiful too!)

I don't work in Photoshop much sorry, I find the interface a bit tricky. But everything I talked about here is the same principles. :)

Ehmm i hope to not be rude, but there's a little error in the primary red colour, the one you used it's wrong, the primary red it's the magenta :/ not the red you used, anyway it's not a big mistake :)
