How to: ColorAs a follow up of my "How to: Anatomy" journal that was received so well by the community, I will continue this series with a how to on color.Color is considered to be one of the hardest subjects when it comes to art. Most beginners (and even some advanced artists) struggle to get the colors of their work right. I myself do as well. This journal is by no means a full coverage on how to color. It will however be a good list of resources to get you started on this hard subject.A few things to get startedThere are a few things to colorThere's hue and value. Hue determines what place in the color spectrum the color is in (red, green, blue.. etc). Value determines how dark or light a color is.

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblinDo you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics. This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.

Some aren't even tutorials but images that by looking at them, i get a better understanding of something.They have shaped who i am as an artist. You can probably see their influence on my art to this day.So without further ado, here they are.One of the first tutorials on colors i looked at, and one of the best :iconaquasixio: has some very good tutorials on colors as well http://aquasixio.deviantart.com/gallery/8808807/Tutorialssome examples: This is not a tutorial but whenever i look at it i feel like i know how to draw cl
