I got a few people asking about the little “exercises” I give myself to do when I need to warm up, break out of art block, or just have fun doodling… so here’s one for you guys to try! It’s basically like that color scheme meme that was floating around, except you make your own color schemes.

So Abbiegoth asked me if I could make a tutorial of how I color and do lighting on gems/jewels.  Here we go.

biggest key to understanding gems is that

  • Gems are not flat, they are 3d shapes, so treat them as such
  • Gems are translucent, not transparent.  light goes in one side and out the other, but it illuminates the object WHILE passing in and passing back out, and the in-ray creates a smaller point of light than the outside because light scatters inside the gem.
  • subtlety with any sort of outer glow is key.  gems are deep, not glowsticks, subtlety can help make jewels and gems deep and have lots of personality, so make sure you have your dark depths and subtle lights.  dont abuse glows, use them as the cherry on top.

Hope this helps a little, and thanks for the question

Part One
And a Random Tip

Here’s Part 2 of my tutorial series. It’s covering something that I personally enjoy. There is still much for me to learn, and much I would like to show you from others.

In Photoshop I use the Coolorus extension which is available here. It is extremely helpful in picking color schemes. (It includes the ability to switch between RYB and RGB!)

Sycra is a master of digital art and makes very in-depth tutorials including color and shading.

PurpleKecleon has a very in-depth tutorial on color.

Lackadaisy tutorials are famous for good reasons.

My next tutorial will come soon.

"Many successful women suffer from impostor syndrome. Impostor syndrome is the feeling that you’re a fraud—that you’re somehow less qualified than your peers, less deserving of success, and that you’ll be ‘found out’ if you don’t work longer and harder than everyone else."

Haven’t posted this on tumblr yet! I actually drew this 3 months ago but never got around to putting it up since it was so big vuv;; I’ve always wanted to make comics about how video games affected me as a kid. So I did. Except only with animal crossing since that game gave me a hell of a good time and got me through some lows. It was hard cutting out all the differen’t parts I wanted to include. Most of the images are stories I would make up in my mind and role play them in secret.
