4 Combining colour
The colour scheme is a crucial step for drawing. It involves value, colour combination, focal points and composition. Although some of these elements are decided during the sketching stage, a bad colour selection will ruin everything. I choose bright and high-saturation colours for this illustration because they make the girl more appealing. They’re also suitable for the manga theme. I plan to smooth away the line work, so I add many new layers set to Multiply, Overlay and Color mode with colours directly over the line work layer.
