Blasphemous - color key

Someone who understands color muuuuuch more than me helped me arrive at this key, which I plan to make use of going forward.  It was especially useful in breaking up Hailey.  The underside of her hair is darker to pop out her face and shoulderline.  The horns and wings are darker so they no longer consolidate with the hair or  stockings.  Stockings and skin will be assigned a shadow color as well.


Three cheers for gracious art friends!
