Default Prisma/copic question

After coloring an image I see some of you color around the outside of the image to make it pop more, how do you know what color to use and do you always do this?

I don't think there's a rule for which colour to use other than "pale". I pretty much always do it with a certain type of image as it gives it a better grounding so it's not as likely to look as if it's just floating around.

With Copics I'd typically chose something like a pale blue or blue-green or a light gray (either cool or neutral, depending on the colours in the image).

With Prismas I usually colour with a mid to pale tone (again, blue or gray) close up to the image and then blend outwards to fade it into the background.

HTH!

I've always wondered how to do this too, thanks!
