If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from
If you would like to participate in this challenge, I ask that you DO NOT repost this anywhere else, including deviantART; please REBLOG this instead! I have the challenge uploaded to deviantART as well, so please check it out there if you want to do it on deviantART!
Here’s some of the drawings I’ve done with a few of these palettes c:

this is so sloppy and poorly foreshortened, i don't even...

So in terms of tips… I have a few cheapo tutorials with my own digi tools/approaches for “simplification”.

To be honest, getting basics is the first step. Practice practice practice from life and master studies to understand composition, light, color, etc.

To me, when drawing something, shapes are the first thing my eyes see, shapes of component parts, shapes of light and dark, shapes of negative space.

To make strong shapes, you need strong contrast, either in value, or in hue, or even saturation. Now, we all know that blending and smooth gradations give more rounder, rendered finishes, but no matter how much we render, the initial shape is the strongest thing we see.

Now, the basics will only make you a technically proficient person, what is really important to go beyond, is focus on what it is you’re trying to tell. Is there a story? Is there a focal point? If so, what are the points of emphasis, what are the extraneous bits?

I don’t know if that was useful or not. Hopefully it helped a little???
