Contrast by TamberElla Contrast by TamberElla
Just a quick little thing about contrast c: Very vague and small, but maybe it will be useful xD I should mention that this really isn't the best example to use, because the whole concept of values really mostly applies to realistic works. But eh, it was late and I was lazy sooo- take what you can get from this.

you obviously know what contrast is but I wouldnt say youve dont a good job at explaining exactly how to achieve it. How am I supposed to have a clue what youve done from step A to step B other than assume youve added more black to your color choices :/ could do with way more "explaining the how" because all I see is explaining the why.

Looks to me like colors are more saturated (versus having a "pastel" palette). Shadows are darker and highlights are brighter. Sounds too simple to be helpful but I've found that contrast is one of my biggest issues.

yeah i think that its really just the fact that darker colors lean more to black while lighter colors lean more to white and you have to balance them with saturation. I was always taught not to shade just by making colors darker so i always stayed away from just making colors darker, but that was my mistake, because if you never use darker colors in your palette youll hinder yourself and your art wont have much depth, itll just look all pretty.

I like your tutorials, they explain sometimes complex things in a very simple manner. Perfect to link to people who struggle with understanding contrast, for example :D

nicely done, i still think for some pictures or sketchy colored things the first version with the low contrast would create a cute effect ^^
