with darker colors like that, you have to use the compliment in a multiply (transparent additive) layer for digital.....and in layerable traditional media, compliment over top. If you want the warm color to show, have it as your reflected light. But if you wanted to be bold, you could put the warm color compliment at it's original intensity. It's all up to the technique- hard to explain. XD
Yeah, I can see that. I mean, I get the basic idea, and have for a while, but it kind of confused me in this because it makes sense, but then wouldn't the shadows be the most prominent in a picture, and normally that's not a good thing. I've been looking for a good, simple explanation for a while, so thank you for that in the tut, and thank you for doing so here too.
thank you so much for putting this in terms i can understand clearly! i'm mostly a self taught artist and i'm always struggling through colors, art vocabulary, and how they work on the feel to a picture
but now you've taught me basics where do it yourself art books couldn't
thank you and i'll be sure to check your other tutorials too!
