No problem!! I’m entranced by your use of color *o* very inspiring!
My color choices are mostly done this way. Once I pick the base color, I slide the hue wheel slightly before picking the darker/lighter colors (black for the direction of the shades, gray for the highlights). The question marks signify areas where the direction depends on what mood I want; luckily for me, I don’t use those colors too often. Otherwise, varying the selector diagonally makes the choices more interesting in my opinion.
And there’s room for ‘filters’ too, of course. ^^
Oh wow!!! I didn’t expect this kind of detailed reply at all, thank you so much!! All of those are really good color schemes dang dang I wish I could give you advice too! Unfortunately I mostly do traditional work and my digital work needs a LOT of work, but I’m definitely taking all of this to heart !!!
(posting to my main because it’s good advice!)
