How to: ColorAs a follow up of my "How to: Anatomy" journal that was received so well by the community, I will continue this series with a how to on color.Color is considered to be one of the hardest subjects when it comes to art. Most beginners (and even some advanced artists) struggle to get the colors of their work right. I myself do as well. This journal is by no means a full coverage on how to color. It will however be a good list of resources to get you started on this hard subject.A few things to get startedThere are a few things to colorThere's hue and value.

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblinDo you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong.
