As I work more and more with greyscale and painting in general, I understand how much simpler the limiter values of greyscale help to define form easier, but when I do try to transfer the greyscale to color via a color layer or overlay layering, it isn't exactly on par. I guess it's from the lack of inherent value being the same as what it would be if it was done straight in color. As humans we don't see in black and white and so I assume lighter colors are very very white, but in fact, according to the overlay layer, it's too light. I wish I could explain it better.
When I use overlay or color layers to color over my grayscale, it is either too light or too dark because the values aren't set accordingly, though they look find by themselves in greyscale. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm sure it's been an issue for at least one other person. Let's hope I can get some responses and work on it. It'd greatly increase my speed, though I do like just slabbing color on the canvas also.
Any tips guys?
