I was reading White Dwarf daily the other day and found this article on some Eldar models that had been sent in:
White Dwarf Daily | Games Workshop

It talks about how complementary colour were used to shade the cloak such as the purple had been shaded using an orange - obviously it wasn't pure orange and had been mixed with a dark purple/black but I was wandering how much of a difference this would actually make using these colours.

Can someone explain how this works or link a tutorial to have a look at?
Thanks

Or even more simply:



The colors opposite of each other are complimentary.

ah makes sense, so if shading/ highlighting something you just mix the opposite colour on the colour wheel in to balance out the tone and keep it in line with the parents colur?
I will have to start doing this on some of my more fancy minis, thanks guys!
