I'm quite aware what I'm doing when it comes to take softer colors into drawings, to give some examples:Here, this should help you understand
Ive learned a lot of my stuff from this person, I think you would be able to improve from it too.
And past week I've just practised the softer color style once again.
It's not that I'll never do it, but I also prefer to work with things that I find fine to work with.
Terraria is free to pick any color or color sheme you want to choose, and I'm not 'restricting' myself to just what I consider a 'good' color sheme.
Eventually the intelligence comes with the years and maybe over time I'm going to prefer the 'more fitting' colors over the other.
Also, It's worth to take this quote from the description of the exact vid:
[DISCLAIMER!!! These are just rules I use to color! They're meant to be helpful, not restrictive, so you if you or an artist you like breaks these 'rules' that's okay! Take all my advice with a grain of salt c: ]
