One way to add some extra color to your black cat drawing, is to not only add a Halloween-y orange in the background, but to make it graduate up to a yellow-ish orange.

It takes some careful coloring and overlapping, but will be worth it in the end. You’ll have the perfect drawing to celebrate Halloween!
