I actually have something cool to share about color theory. I'm not sure if it's mentioned in any of the tutorials you shared here, but if you want to make your coloring more interesting, you'll have to add colors of opposite sides of the color wheel. Here's a neat little website that'll help you select exact colors that will best compliment your current color.

There are instructions for the whole thing at the bottom. Very usefull.

For color schemes, have you ever been to paletton.com ? I use it a lot, it's super easy to work with. And shingworks has a deviantart and a tumblr that both have a loooot of good tutorials for a lot of different stuff
