Painting monochromatically can be quite challenging as shifts in various blues and purples all have different values drastically! So you can use a special trick to make this hurdle much much easier!
First as usual we slap the lineart
Mask in your color
By using a color layer on top of every other layer and filling it with white, it'll grayscale your piece! now choose whatever color and bend and shift the values to your liking
Add your details and more light source
Secondary shadows to transition more
Minor details to guide the eye
Soft brush in your shadows and lights
refining and removal of the lineart because i prefer it that way
and we're done i hope ya'll enjoyed this!
