How Drift’s appearance changes through his lifetime:

[image: Drift, first appearance. His frame is mostly white, with grey as the secondary color and orange-cold as the tertiary color. His face is white and his optics yellow. He has long pointed finials but an otherwise fairly unadorned helm. His midsection as one narrow row of vents.]

[image: Drift with Gasket. He has the same general frame shape but the details are different. His optics are red, he has a prominent grey browplate, his face is grey. He’s lost all the yellow accents and gained red ones instead. His primary color is now grey with white as the accent color. His helm is the same general shape but is now bulkier.]

[image: Drift immediately pre-Decepticon. He’s changed subtly. He’s got vents on his arms, which are bulkier now. His chest is deeper and there are prominently exposed lights/some circular feature under the vents. He’s got his gold trim back and has added rounded audials with gold trim framing his face.]

[images: Drift as a full-fledged Decepticon. Now he’s got guns mounted on his arms, is very shiny and has lots of red glitzy panels on his legs. The grey has become very purple and the dull yellow has become brighter. In the second picture his crotch has also become bedazzled with gold and red paneling.]

[image: Drift, post first Circle of Light repair. His lower legs are exactly the same. His face is mostly the same, but his optics are now blue. Other than that, his body has swapped to a white with grey accents design, his shoulders have gotten boxier and his chestplate flatter with exposed lights.]

[image: Drift immediately pre-battle at the end of the miniseries. He’s swapped out his helm; the rounded audials have been replaced with boxy squares lining his lower face and he’s lost the grey ridge right above his face. He’s also completely replaced his legs with ones with thick white boots w/ yellow trim and dark colored thighs.]

[image: Drift from Spotlight: Drift. The white panel at the center of his chest has gotten much wider and he’s lost his gold boot accents in exchange for red accents. The red piping on his helm has changed shape. Overall his frame feels chunkier and less pointy. His sword sheathes have lost their red trim.]

[images: Drift in All Hail Megatron 15. Drift’s central chest panel is even wider, forcing his tiny headlights to shrink even more. He’s lost all detailing & vents from his midsection and the gold detailing has moved position on his pelvic plating. He’s also picked up two (count em, two) Autobot badges.]

[image: Drift from Death of Optimus Prime. His chest panel has a swooped windshield on it that approximates samurai armor and his shoulder pieces are curved with red swoops on them.]

[image: mtmte Drift. His primary color is now dark grey, while his boots, forearms and pelvis are white. He’s got his badge on the center of his chest, which weirdly looks like it’s strapped onto him like armor. He is more curvy than any robot has any business being and has red accents at his shoulders, thighs and waist. His shoulders have a strongly hexagonal shape. He’s returned, almost exactly, to his initial helm shape but has kept the blue optics and has left off the browplate.]

[image: Drift’s mtmte redesign, which borrows elements from a number of his earlier looks. He’s kept the red and white but darkened his primary grey to nearly black. His face is now grey and he’s adopted Dai Atlas style facepaint. He still has lots of extra kibble, but it’s less curvy. His blue chestlamps have returned from his Circle of Light redesign. So has has the red decorations on his helm, which now has dramatic red eyebrow shapes painted on it. This also marks the return of the boxy filters on the sides of his helm circa Circle of Light 2nd makeover.]

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!  

Halo 6 Armor Discussion

So I am curious of what people will want in Halo 6 when it comes to player customization.
For me, I want dynamic armor customization to return, like Halo: Reach or Halo 4 had. Everyone knows I am a big fan of combining Mark V and Mark VI, best of both classics. I also think it would make clans stand out if the members could distinguish themselves more. Perhaps even some major improvements. Offer black undersuits or different ones, such as the ones the members of Osiris had. There’s no lore reason that we can’t have them, since every Spartan, including Blue Team is wearing GEN 2 armor. 

I also would enjoy a tertiary armor color feature, instead of being stuck with white or other colors on the special skins for armors. 

Another nice feature would of course, be the return of Sangheili, but I’m sure that is bound to happen. Two Halo games in a row of fans requesting it, third time’s a charm right? 

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!

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.

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










In the Merriway there are no specific holidays like Halloween or Christmas. There are 12 seasons that match with the 12 hues of the tertiary color wheel and each one hosts their own special festival. Some of the festivals do align with the specific holidays we have. For example, the Indigo Season would be the equivalent of Halloween and focuses on facing your fears. Everyone celebrates it by putting up spooky decorations and during the festival people dress up as monsters and try to scare one another but also encourage folks to overcome their fears. Theres also a festival similar to thanksgiving that celebrates things like the harvest and sharing. 

y’know i’m glad i found this armor for kara. i knew from the start i wanted them to be mandalorian, but knowing that a lot of the in game heavy/heavy looking armor lacked that distinct iron heart, i wasn’t even paying attention to looking for one. (I was actually looking for something that didn’t have a ridiculous looking jetpack and that didn’t clip through their back lek)

Luckily, I found something that didn’t clip through their entire back lek as well as apparently having that iron heart. i can’t get that weird yellow/beige out with the dye (I guess it’s considered a tertiary color to the rest of the mostly dye-able piece) but now that I look at it, it makes the iron heart look more distinct. Plus @izzyovercoffee has mentioned that yellow is a good color for a sort of ‘surviving’ connotation.

SO. lots of mando color theory going on AND I GOT THE IRON HEART


“Paint Your Soul”

Castiel started experimenting with colors. In theory, every shade on the visible spectrum could be created by mixing the primary, secondary, and even tertiary color blends. But it was a long and arduous process trying to replicate that one exact hue. Or in this case, several.

Dark hunter-green was easy enough, but there were nuances of cyan and emerald swirled together in a rich, vibrant aura. There were also a few blood-red fractures that made Castiel’s heart ache to see, but he would not paint over them, would not cover them up. They were part of what made this soul strong, having endured so much.

Then there was saffron with gleaming flecks of gold and bronze. And rust. Rivulets of a foreign corruption inlaid so long ago. But they were faint now, dormant. This soul pulsed with the radiance of a blazing sun.

Castiel struggled for days on end to find the right shades. He knew his subjects by heart, but sometimes he would lapse into staring at them, studying each subtlety in the hopes of catching that one sliver of color he needed to work into his paints. He was teased for “zoning out,” or sometimes chastised for doing the “creepy thing” again.

But Dean had later asked him quietly if he was alright.

“You’ve seemed distracted, man.”

On the contrary, he was quite focused, and maybe a little too much on this current pursuit. But Castiel was driven by the inexplicable need to get this right. Because he watched the two humans who meant more to him than anything often succumb to bouts of self-loathing, guilt, and doubt. It pained Castiel that these heroes thought so little of themselves.

Yes, they had flaws, but Castiel wanted them to see that those cracks only added to the remarkable beauty of their souls. He wanted Sam and Dean to see what he saw.

Unfortunately, the only medium open to him was flawed as well. It couldn’t capture the glow, the glister, the iridescent gleam.

But he could come close, and that was the best he could offer.

Which suddenly didn’t seem like enough when he finally presented the pieces to the Winchesters. Castiel didn’t know why he should feel self-conscious; he’d matched the various shades perfectly.

But the longer Sam and Dean stared at their portraits in silence, the more uncertain Castiel became. He tried to explain, what each shade represented—strength, valor, sacrifice—but that still didn’t prompt a reaction.

After several more moments of awkward silence, Dean finally cleared his throat. “You, uh, really see all that?”

“Yes. I always have.”

But perhaps his attempt to convey it hadn’t worked the way he’d intended.

Sam looked contemplative, still staring at the piece of paper in his hands. Then he smiled, small and tentative, but genuine, like he was seeing something awe-inspiring for the first time. “Thanks, Cas,” he said softly.

Castiel relaxed. Maybe he’d succeeded after all.
