I've been lurking around these forums for a few months, and seeing as these are the forums that sparked me wanting to develop my artwork further, I thought I'd ask here.
Even considering it's a stupidly broad question, and I'm probably even asking in the wrong section.
I've been drawing with pencils, black and white, lots of lines, up until now. This is, like, 3 years of development purely in black and white lines. I'm really trying my damndest now to somehow apply colour to it. It's too messy for me to just sort of slap some colours on a layer underneath the linework, and whenever I try to use the linework as a guideline, it ends up looking really bad. I'm asking if anyone else had a problem with using colour at first, and if anyone could share their ideas on exactly how would one go about learning to use colour as a medium, without having to relearn their artistic thinking altogether?
Thanks in advance.
Note: I can post a general idea of what my stuff looks like if needed. I think it's not all that important.
