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.

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!!!

I do the same, blue or purple for shade and yellow,orange or pink for highlights... sometimes cyan depends on the BG

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.
