  • if, after the sketch, the palette and colors or the drawing overall doesn't look good, then redo it from the beginning and try again by either changing the palette or scrapping the shading ; it's not gonna look any better after that and trying to insist is not only a mistake but a waste of time and energy
    • also, if the colors don't look right try making the painting black and white the same way you'd flip the canvas to check for imperfections
      • look for contrasts between the tones and tweak whatever necessary; for better enhancement, you can also do it while zoomed out so, if you can make out the drawing from afar, it's all good
  • blues or purples for shades, the prominent color for lightening
