I take a lot of my inspiration from Viria13 on DA, so if you ever want to check her tutorials or videos, you should! But, um, I don't know how to explain it... I'll try though. Let's see, first of all, I use Paint Tool SAI, and there is a type of brush (it can be found for every tool, like the crayon, marker, etc.) called Spread. Play around with the settings, like the blending, density, edge hardness, etc. Also, use several colors in the same family, like for example, different shades of brown or reds. I think that's the best I can explain it, hope it helps some!
i did notice and i love that i love her style ive been trying to get ideas from her i look at her art like 24/7 lol. hmm and i think i know what brush you use. i only have photo shop elements 8 im working on getting paint tool SAI (do you know how i can get it free?). and thanks
I use Paint tool SAI, and there are different types of brushes. The one I use is spread and I just pick a light neutral color. Then I get the Oil Water tool (also with the brush type called Spread) and sorta blend the color out. Keep looking at my journal entries, I usually am on livestream so if you ever want to watch me color, you can see how I do it on there. Also, my work is very much inspired from Viria13's, so you could always take a look at her livestream videos or tutorials.
