Simple Color Blending Tutorial by StarshipSorceress Simple Color Blending Tutorial by StarshipSorceress
Hey everyone. Just a simple color blending tut. This is a common problem I see with smudge tool and overblending, so I thought I'd put in my two cents :twocents: I hope it's at least helpful to someone, I'm not sure if I explained it that well. And sorry if my handwriting is too messy XD

If you have any questions, just ask me! Made with Paint Tool Sai

Maybe he wants to know how you determine the shape of an object with lights and shadows, and use a particular blend in order to give them volume.
Which I would ask too if I can. 
How can you use this blending for shading sharp areas, such as the chin-neck or fingers?

Oh well that's sort of an entirely different tutorial to be honest, haha. 

This method of blending works for any object, I use it in all my work. It's more the way you use your colors and shading/highlighting that determines the volume and shape of an object. I guess if you're having trouble getting sharp areas when you blend, you may be overblending and making things look too flat, which circles back to shading/highlighting to create volume. 

A really good tutorial I can recommend to you on color, blending, shadows/highlights, etc is this one: fav.me/d31xj5t

It really helped me understand these concepts and may help you too! <3
