A lesson about colors by Pompuri A lesson about colors by Pompuri
This is my first 'tutorial'. I was giving some tips to someone on a forum, which turned out to become some sort of tutorial, so I completed it for DA. I'm not really a tutorial person, because I think it is better to figure out things by yourself. But I have learned a lot from being in an art school for the past years and I thought it would be nice to share those things.

I think it is these little things that can have a major influence on your artwork. Even if you do not use it, it is important to at least be aware of it.

Please please let me know if this was any kind of helpful to you! Or any other feedback. Everything is welcome. I really want to know what you think of it.

And please share your work with me, if you think my tutorial has been of help with your development! <3 I really hope my tutorial can help haha

Oh and English is not my first language, so some things might be worded a little oddly. At least it is not worded as well as I wanted to, but some things are just hard to translate.

There actually is a lot more I could say, so maybe I will make a part 2 some day. Because this really only just focuses on the effects brightness and saturation.

Wow! Thanks for the DD! It means a lot to me :) I wasn't sure if I should post this tutorial when I made it, afraid that it only made sense to myself XD But now I'm glad I did!

Great tutorial. I like the way these general principles can be used in pretty much all forms of visual art.
