Hello Drawabox community, I am seeking advice for using color, as I am having trouble making it look 3d and not flat. I've provided some small artworks that I've colored, any advice is welcome. Thank you.

You are doing a great job so far! I especially like the potion and figure you've coloured. Keep it up my friend :>

I think you should've added the blue to that bottle with a green liquid. It would make it looks like an actual glass. Rn it looks a little bit off because of it. Dinosaur needs more shadows in my opinion. Your doing pretty well, keep up the good work!

Color and Light by James Gurney

Color and Light by James Gurney

Some of you may remember James Gurney's breathtaking work in the Dinotopia series. This is easily my favourite book on the topic of colour and light, and comes highly recommended by any artist worth their salt. While it speaks from the perspective of a traditional painter, the information in this book is invaluable for work in any medium.
