Coloured Shading Tutorial - How to pick a palette by caughtinthehurricane Coloured Shading Tutorial - How to pick a palette by caughtinthehurricane
I know i'm not a professional or anything, but i thought perhaps it might help out SOMEONE, just to see my process:)

As stated above, these rules do not always apply depending on the lighting, though for petsite items following these rules should suffice in helping to create brighter, more visually appealing objects.

Also remember to take into account backlighting/reflective light! For example, if a shiny ball is on a blue table, the blue colour may reflect upwards onto the ball.

FYI, this tutorial is not how to shade. Just how to pick the colours FOR the shading process.

Let me know if it was any help, thanks for looking!





EDIT: Just realised I misspelled palette as "pallette" in the tutorial... please ignore my idiocy! Thanks:D

I am currently using Photoshop elements, but in the past i have used photoshop cs5, gimp, and paint tool sai (which i LOVE). 

As for brushes, i use the default brush for the most part, but i recently downloaded a HUGE brushset which i have just started to try out (i have forgotten where its from, eek! ) called "lazy brushes" haha


thanks, im glad it helped!
