When something doesn’t look right, but you can’t figure out why, make a copy of your layer and try some of these tricks. Staring too long at a piece without breaks is often where I “kill” a piece and lose scope of the work as a whole. Thanks to letsplaygods for the supersaturate trick.
I already flip and value check often. Though those other things seem like pretty niffty tricks to keep in mind when i’m spending more than 4 hours straight on a piece//working on something from start to finish.
Also for the love of god remember to zoom out. I’ve had so many awful moments of “this is lookin’ greaFFFFFUUUUUUUU”
