This frequently causes a misuse of colors in some projects, and even a well drawn piece may be regarded as poor quality by the simple lack of understanding color theory. Over these lessons we'll learn how to understand and apply the color wheel in various situations. We'll learn how to plan and create color schemes for concept sketches and illustrations, how to establish a strong composition, how to mix colors and how to adequate color and tone, among many other things. By the end of this tutorial, you will have the ability to plan and select colors and color harmonies for future projects. Software required: Photoshop CS6.
