Hello there! and thank you so much I really appreciate it !!
For digital painting(or any media) I basically play with the colors before I continue to paint and refine—-since it’s digital I rest the colors on the canvas! the colors I used from the beginning always change towards the end most of the time (tweaking with layer mods and color adjustments). So it’s really how the piece will suit your eyes in the end.
How I paint: I paint with “70% flow” or “opacity” ! sometimes it’s 100% if the brush is good with light pressure.
Color picker becomes a habit or—a number one reliance to painting digital— -especially for using light pressure and light opacity. The colors will overlap and blend together! using the color picker to snatch that color to be able blend.
Hope that makes sense!
