(oops tumblr screwed up my reply to the actual ask)
Hello, thank you very much! :)
Hmm, about blending…I’m not sure which program you’re using, but I usually use a pressure-sensitive brush in photoshop, which makes it easier to blend colors. (all my brushes are here) If the color becomes muddy, remember that blending colors adjacent to each other on the color wheel will be smoother and more natural-looking than if you’re blending complementary ones (i.e. red/green, purple/yellow, etc). You can also try using different hues/values/saturations of one color. Half the battle is picking the right colors for the piece. Try to limit the palette; too much random variation can result in muddiness when you try to blend.
I always have one finger on the alt key in photoshop (shortcut for eyedropper) at all times when painting so I can sample in-between colors, and use those for a smoother blend (yay for digital painting magic). That way, you’re not just blending two colors, you have a whole range of in-between hues to soften the blend. (A lower Flow or Opacity value might help too.) Additionally, you can use the colors you get from blending in other parts of the piece to maintain color cohesion.
Experiment with combining different colors. I like blending in a dark blue to make shadows more interesting-looking, and bright colors for highlights or middle tones.
If you’re interested, I’d definitely recommend checking out some books on color theory and traditional painting. Or study some artists you like—how do they use light and shadow, what’s the overall color scheme?–or use photos for reference. Mostly it just takes a lot of practice!
I know this is really general, but I hope it helps a little bit :‘D Have fun~
