I'm not a particularly good inkert tho, I only invest a lot in details, which is not something webcomics with prominent colour do. Little White Knight would certainly lose something with colouring, and if I had to colour it, I'd probably have some aquarel wash or something with a light touch like that.
I will admit, one of my problems is that I color because I don't know how to color. It probably sounds nonsensical but it's true. I don't know how to use color effectively, so I just color the whole thing semi-realistically and hope that it suits the purpose
I have another comic I want to work on that I want to practice using positive and negative space and black and white. I guess it's discouraging because it seems like the sort of thing that should come naturally to a person somehow, like I feel as if I should just be able to KNOW what's important and what's not important, and why haven't I figured out how to do that yet, type of thing.
I dunno... it was kinda one of my early preoccupations, so now it's there even when I'm not paying attention to it. I've never seen it properly explained in a book, all you can do is find a lot of examples and study them. Henry Moore and Giacometti are the obvious choices.
