Basic Shading/Lighting Palette by Kawiku Basic Shading/Lighting Palette by Kawiku
Hopefully some people can find this useful too. I like sharing my "secrets" :giggle:

I often mix with blue when shading and with yellow for lighting. It gives more contrast and life than only shading with black or lighting with white.

Forgive my naivete...but is this a brush or something, or do I have to do something to make it into a template?

Just curious if it could get made into a brush is all.

I use an app called Autodesk sketchbook for normal Android tablets... I bought the extensions to it such as smudge tools, copic color palettes and some texture tools... (Which was $5) I think it's a crappy app bc I only get one option for the size format.... And only 18 layers...

So vibrant colors! o3o

I have heard many times about the blues and yellows for shading and lighting, respectively.  Although, how would one shade/light something that is already blue or yellow? :/ I can suspect using darker shades of the the colors, but then when I try shading/lighting with yellow, it just looks silly.

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate this!  I have an absolutely terrible time with color -- I have no sense for it.  But I can use this -- this makes sense to me, I think because it's used to shade the circles.  Thanks so very much!  Please consider doing more of these!!!

It says in the comments they "often" mix with blue/yellow. Which means after the fact or for higher contrast they go back in to their chosen color palette and add blue's and yellows for shadows and highlights.
