I decided to make this tutorial, as it's probably an issue that's overlooked by a lot of people. If you've picked all the colors you wanted to, and bothered with things like skin tone, and the picture still doesn't quite look the way you want it to, it's probably because of bad lighting.

EDIT:...Oh wow. That's what happens when you get a DD. Thanks though.

And for those who are wondering, yes, that's Hohenheim. Not that it even matters. I'm surprised he's that recognizable, even though I drew him without the glasses. I excluded the glasses because I just needed a simple example.

Suggester's words: Oh my god. Light has always been a trouble for me, it seems so confusing and hard to put onto paper, however [Global Lighting Tutorial] by ~Angelus-Tenebrae puts it so simply and clear that even i can understand it! I have learned a lot from this short but helpful tutorial and highly recommend it to any artist, digital or not, who has trouble with painting light.

Just like in photography, bad lighting can ruin a picture. This really helped!
