I have trouble with picking colors a lot, so I've been trying to find tutorials like this to get a better grasp on building up a palette. While I think I have a pretty good grasp on color theory and stuff, the actual choosing and and 'merging' of the colors to make them look nice tends to escape me.
 Until now! (hopefully)
This tutorial, at least from what I've seen, really has a different angle, especially since it's all about choosing colors that look good together. And the transparency trick is genius, I can't wait to try it out myself!

It's a wonderful tuto !
I think I could see which colors match in my head but it's always too dark (yeah I know it's an other problem but if I follow these steps maybe it could help me..)
Could you (if you like to do it of course) make a tuto for skin tone ?
I know there is a lot of tutos for that but I really like how you explain your theory, it's really easy to understand !
Thank you !!!
