Oh I plan the hell out of my colors. 80% of my painting time is just me stressing over whether I picked the right colors. I have tons of pre-set palettes for different locations and types of pages. Every scene, interaction, and character is color-coded. I’m incredibly anal about why someone’s shirt has to be blue or why two locations must have complementary color schemes, even if they don’t intersect.
I’ve learned that this type of attention to detail isn’t all that important to readers, but it’s one of those things that I just *have* to do because I’m me.
