on saturation and warmth
@sweetiefayceheya! I saw your comment but had no idea how to respond, so here I am with this post (because the ask box doesn't allow pictures)
when I draw, I tend to pick shadows that are less saturated than the base. for example with the pink, I picked the top set of colors:
when you put down a color that's less saturated next to a color that's more saturated, it makes the saturated color "pop." when you have the same level of saturation (like the bottom set of colors), the object tends to feel a little "flat"
as for making objects feel "cozier," I tend to go with a warm highlight:
warm-colored lighting makes places feel, well, warmer (ex: orange light from a fire or a salt lamp), while cold-colored lighting makes places feel colder (ex: blue light from a computer monitor)
sorry if this isn't what you asked, feel free to ask me to elaborate if I didn't actually answer your question sdfadff
