Introduction to Shading with Complementary Colors by Einion Rees is a very early feature. It is KitMaker Network article No. 36, from 2002. I post it here as I''ve never seen this oldie-but-goodie before and yet it presents very good techniques for figure painters.

That is the good old way to learn about colors and how to use contrast. Long time ago. We had multiple colors on our pallets to create forms with exciting lines....(I studied Art)

Cool!
