Hello! This just a small guide for young/beginner artist.

It doesn’t matter what software you use, for me I primarily use Paint tool sai. 

Mario is a good example of a character who has primary colors.

Patrick uses different variants of secondary colors.

Magenta’s color is tertiary because it is between purple and red.

Luigi has a analogous color scheme, color adjacent to each.

Yoshi dominant color is green, red is the direct color opposite from green.

Dipper’s shirt is the red, his hat and jacket serve as (indirect) split complementary colors.

There’s also Traidic color scheme: three colors equally spaces on the color wheel.

 Tetradic color scheme: double complementary. (quite difficult to use)

And Monochromatic: variations of light and saturation of one color,

Value is the lightness and darkness in color.

This shows about 9 values. Value is important because it shows the illusion of light.

This is one of the mistakes a lot of young/beginner artists make. Unless the drawing is in grey-scale, black and white as shadow and light is wrong to use. 

I use Luminosity and multiply, of course their are other modes to use, like shade for shading. screen or overlay for light. (paint tool sai user) light is not always necessary btw.  

Never be afraid of using a warm color as a shadow and a cool color as light etc.

Always experiment with your art, try new things, and figure what’s best for you!

Let me know if any of this helped you, and thanks for reading!

Now go start drawing!

Lands and Manabase in EDH - Pt.1

If you know the EDH format, you know that mana fixing is one of the most essential part of creating a functional deck. Although there are some amazing lands that assists you in doing so, not all of us have an extra $500 to create a perfect mana base. Here are some tips on building a resilient ‘budget’ mana base!

This specific part of the article is trying to tackle on which tap land to use. More to come in future articles!

1. Gain Lands & Guildgates
Out of all the tap-lands, these are one of the worst one available, these lands has came in many varieties but I want to focus specifically on these two types. It is best to avoid using these lands, they do not give you any significant advantage beside color fixing, even though they are readily accessible I would prefer to be able to reap more advantage out of my tap-lands. (Maybe for flavor)

When should I use the guildgates/gain lands? In certain decks, you are limited to very little color fixing. Khans And Enemy color combination have less ‘good’ color fixing compared to friendly color and these are the rare cases on when you should consider these abomination. Use them only if you do not have any other options, even though some decks appreciate the life gain (Karlov, Oloro) or able to use the ‘gate’ land typing by playing ‘gatekeepers’ these lands are the lowest on the list of cards you should consider.

2. Fastland, Temples and Bouncelands
As we now enter the higher priced cards, these color fixing lands place higher on the rank of budget color fixing. The three most accessible tap lands are the temples, Kaladesh fast lands and the bounce lands (Due to recent MM Printing). These three type of lands are great on their own way, here is why!

Kaladesh Fast Lands, being recently printed they are relatively cheap, these enemy color pairing lands provide an interesting argument on why you should include them. First, you should always consider these lands if your commander is 2 Color Enemy pair, it provides fast mana and its definitely better than a guildgate. Second, only consider including these fast lands in a 3 color combo deck with super low CMC. Due to it’s ‘speed’ I include the UW and BW fast-lands in my Zur deck which has average cmc of 1.9. Beside that, if speed is not something you are worried about and you want to durdle; these lands is not for your deck. (Insert a flawless transition to Scry lands)

Temples Or Scrylands, these are on of the lands that is printed on the rare level. They are essentially a guild gate that has card selection attached to them. These are one of the ‘higher-end’ tap lands you could include in your deck. When should you include them? If you need the extra card selection in your deck, these are the best one you could get. Both Boros, Selesnya and Gruul are the perfect example of color combination that has little to no card selection, thus these lands should be high in you priority list. 

What about decks that has card selection already, can I include them here?
Yes you can, these lands are pretty great, but I would not go out of my ways to obtain all of them, I would probably include only 1-2 in a 3 color deck and no more than 3 in a 4 color decks. Lets say you playa a Jori-En EDH deck, due to her ability to make you ‘draw’ these extra scry is super helpful; even if its just a tapland. @goblintinkering (Back me up on this :p). 

If you play Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, the extra scry could be helpful due to her mill ability; but again these are very special cases.

My Sidisi deck is UGB (Simic-Black) in color weight, and I would only include the GB & UB scry lands. Why? Simply put, since black component of the deck is mostly reanimation spells, the scry would be relevant to set up my graveyard, and it fixes the color for the reanimation spell.

Bounce Lands, These are a unique lands that was highly picked in draft, giving card equality on entry it is nothing to scoff at. Here is a simple why yes and why not chart on bounce lands.

Reasons To Include:
- Helps with landfall
- Good lands unter Winter Orb/Static Orb
- Help to reuse your lands that has an ETB trigger
Reason To not Include:
- Prone to Strip Mine
- Comes in play tapped, and feels bad if you bounce another tap-land
- Not a great land if you have it as your only 2 lands on the opening hand

I uses 1 tap land in my Sidisi Deck, which i mentioned before is color is U>G>B. I use the GB lands, why? first the color green gives you access to more color fixing be it mana dork or ramp spells; thus getting it early is good to ramp further into your curve. Black and green being my splash color means that most of my spells are not color heavy on those; so with just one card, it could help me access to my tertiary color reliably. Why not use the UG then? Simply put, I would rather run a land that doesnt come into play tapped for my main colors.

More to come! #elrichplaysedh

How do you pick what colors to use in any given painting? Like, in your speedpaints, you throw down a bunch of seemingly random, unrelated colors in different segments, and then, all of a sudden, it just looks fantastic. You never really go over any of them again or apply filters or anything. It's just so... effortlessly flawless looking.

Ha ha. I wouldn’t say that anything I do is even close to flawless but thank you XD

I guess it’s pretty easy for me to pick colors now because colors and color theory has always been interesting to me, and I’ve been practicing with them for so long. I get inspired for pallets by nature a lot which helps. 

But also sometimes the selections aren’t as random as they seem. I use complimentary colors a lot. Also tertiary colors. For example the last piece I did involved lots of reds, oranges and violets, which, if you look at a color wheel, are all next to each other.

I’ll do a tutorial thing on this one day.

It’s on my growing to do list.

How to plan the perfect XYZ dragon

so you all might know me as that one weird girl who’s obsessed with XXY dragons, but let me tell you, there is nothing more beautiful and satisfying to look at than a perfectly coordinated XYZ dragon! they’re also super fun to dress! so this is a relatively useless guide to planning your own! I thought it would be helpful for newbies who are still getting used to all the beautiful colors fr has to offer.

Step 1: Picking a Primary

I started with a blank base so I had a clear vision of what I wanted to go for. Skink is a great gene to start with, because it usually has a stark contrast between its main and accent colors. and also, that throat gradient is to die for. it looks really great with treasure primaries like runes, lace, and contour. other great primaries with accents are poison and petals! Iri also works well on certain breeds.

Step 2: Selecting a Secondary

Here is where things actually get fun. I like to choose a color based on the accent color of the primary. Here, cyan is a perfect match for the accent of lead skink. I like that cyan butterfly just has that pale yellow accent color on the tips, but is otherwise a solid bright blue. You can already see the harmony between the colors beginning to work! Other secondaries that have great accent colors are toxin, spinner, and sometimes shimmer. Keep in mind that with certain colors like orca and metals, pretty much any gene will show off a contrasting accent color because that’s just how that color works! (Those ones are my favorite.)

Step 3: Taking a Tertiary

This is the step where it all comes together. That little pale yellow accent color in cyan butterfly matches perfectly with flaxen. Contour is a great simple gene that doesn’t overwhelm other genes or make them too busy, but adds a ton to bring the secondary and primary together. In addition, choosing an eye color is important too–here I chose light eyes to match the tertiary color. I mentioned great treasure tertiaries in step 1, but glimmer, opal and stained can also make for lovely, unique XYZ dragons!

Other Examples!

These are just a few more combinations that can look stunning. With the first dragon I started with his tangerine opal and chose his other colors to be complimentary to it. The second dragon had his primary chosen first, then his tertiary, and his secondary was picked to accent his stunning throat gradient. (Super helpful note: bogsneaks look great with glimmer and underbelly because their throat color will always show through!) The last dragon’s secondary was picked first, and her other genes were chosen to match. On to the last step!

Step 4: Cry

So you want to actually make these dream dragons a reality? Go ahead and search their colors and see what pops up.

There’s a reason it’s nicknamed “the crying workshop.” Have fun with your breeding projects!

Why Mirio’s hair is Orange (maybe)

Okay so like I just had a sudden realization on why I think Mirio would have Orange as his hair color and I just wanna thank @dinnikeato who posted this lovely artwork that inspired me to make this post. 

(Note: this is just me theorizing and having fun. If you got another color as your preferred headcanon for Mirio’s hair, that’s perfectly fine! You don’t gotta agree with me.)  


So I’ve realized that the reason I think this is due to the way the color wheel works on showing what colors fit with each other. 

You got your primary colors, secondary colors, and tertiary colors. 

When trying to figure out which colors best fit to make certain colors, one only has to look on the color wheel based on complementary and analogous.

Complementary meaning two colors opposite of each other on the color wheel

Analogous meaning colors that are of groups of three that are next to each other on the color wheel

Now, we got All Might made up of pretty much of the colors Red, Yellow, and Blue. He’s made up of primary colors, but is mostly associated with the color Yellow. Primary colors are considered to be the original colors that help make secondary and tertiary colors. 

Meaning? All Might is the original hero. The original Symbol of Peace. The original holder to One for All as the Number One hero. Like a primary color. 

Now, we got Izuku, who’s associated with the color Green, a secondary color which is made with the primary colors Yellow and Blue (Also note, he also is know for having some Red on him, a primary color). Izuku is the new holder of One for All, the secondary to the primary in becoming the new Symbol of Peace. 

And finally, we got Mirio. Mirio was considered in becoming the next successor to All Might in inheriting One for All, but of course he didn’t due to either All Might having met Izuku and/or because All Might saw something in Mirio that didn’t quite make him worthy. Whatever the case, he still was considered a previous candidate for One for All. 

And for good reasons, too. He’s strong, knows how to make use of his quirk, and uses strategy when in a fight. Sort of like how Izuku uses One for All. They are therefore similar in fighting, in thinking, and even in having similar traits to All Might whether it’s ideals or personality. 

So with all this information now in your head, back to the colors: All Might is Yellow (Primary), Izuku is Green (Secondary/Tertiary). On the color wheel they are located next to each other and therefore considered analogous colors. What other color is also associated with Yellow and Green and considered analogous to them, too?


(TLDR: Mirio’s hair is orange cause color wheel and BNHA plot says so.)

anonymous asked:

is it bc ur one of the ppl that cant differentiate blur from indigo or purple from indigo lol me too bud










listen shimmer and alloy are good secondary genes that serve similar functions which differ in a crucial way. 

alloy is sleek, darkens a color and provides subtle gradients, bringing down what mightve been an otherwise unusable color in a scheme. in many breeds there’s three tones and sometimes one tertiary color in its palette. 

shimmer is colorful and can add warm or cool tones, providing more robust gradients consisting of three colors with three tones each, making for a palette that has six base colors – that’s not counting the shadow layers already on the dragons wings.


Blossom brightly with Honeydew Blooms by MissMarifire. This is her representative Warframe and Operator.

Curious we are, Tenno. Are you interested in knowing more about this operator? Feel free to send questions about them here. Our designer will answer questions in between styles, with complimentary drawings.

Warframe uses Saryn Prime with the Saryn Orphid skin and Saryn Belladonna helmet by Malayu. Accessorized using the Igaro Syandana, Hulta Shoulderguards and Chestguard, Targis Prime Greaves, and the Sicarus Prime. Coloured using the Storm, Twilight, Grineer, and Corpus palettes.


Operator uses the Zariman Hood, Varida Suit, Manduka Sleeves, and Koppra Leggings with the Mastery Sigil, MR18. Accessorized using the Ki’Teer earpieces.



And here’s another Fashion Frame post because my second favorite frame got a new nice Tennogen skin!

Along with black and yellow, Ancaps (and I suppose the rest of the heretics on the Libertarian Right) should a tertiary color for imagery.

I say this because we are in desperate need of one. The Authoritarian left balances out their red and gold (as in the flags of the USSR, the PRC, Vietnam, etc.) with black, as in the case of the flag of the GDR.

Likewise, the Authoritarian Right has Red, White, and Blue. (The US, Russia, the UK, Chile, and Israel though with just white and blue)

The Libertarian Left has, on top of black and red, green.

We on the Libertarian Right, though, only have the black and yellow of the Gadsden Flag, In situations where a tertiary color is required, I nominate the purple of the 4th quadrant of the political compass (#C09AEA). This is good because Purple has historically been associated with royalty and, more relevant to us, opulent wealth.

So the complete palette would be this:

The issue is that the shade of purple doesn’t well sit with the yellow. On the other hand, perhaps the purple of UKIP (#703085) could stand in.

We will never see White Diamond

So this theory is based off of how often we see light in the show. When Lapis has her flashback, the diamonds emit light to destroy the gems there, all of the gems use light to travel, and the gems reform with a burst of light (just to name a few instances). Light seems to be very important for the foundations of the show.

Let’s start out by talking about colors. Primary colors include red, blue, and yellow. When you mix these colors together in any combination, you can get more colors: secondary, tertiary, etc. When you mix every single color together when dealing with light, you get white.

Now you have 3 diamonds who are primary colors: pink (a tint of red), yellow, and blue. Because gems rely on light so often, we would go off of the light spectrum of color combinations, leading us to the conclusion that White Diamond is a fusion of the other 3 diamonds.

Now that Pink Diamond has shattered, the three diamonds can no longer fuse in order to form White Diamond; thus, we will never see White Diamond in the present or future, only in flashbacks.
