lulluluvskullz  asked:

do you have any tips for palettes? i tried twice and they turned out like absolute shit :///

I usually just eyeball the colors when I draw but this site is very helpful when it comes to choosing colors!! http://www.tigercolor.com/color-lab/color-theory/color-theory-intro.htm

I just sorta summarized it into pictures so you don’t have to go back and forth but i didn’t put the in depth meaning behind it so i still recommend checking the site out!!:

I’m only a self taught artist, no school or professional background so a huge disclaimer

I’m pretty sure most people knows the basics like neutral, primary, secondary and tertiary as well as subtractive primary colors (CMK) so I’ll skip through that along with the cold and warm colors:

Volume and Saturation plays a big role on making palettes. It plays the part of the appeal and what colors to choose, palettes that are too saturated or high on contrast are quite painful to look at (some artist make it work by balancing it out so they still maintain the bright colors) and unsaturated, low on contrast palettes are dull to look at and not very a appealing.

Tints, Shades, and Tones are sub terms you can use, this chart is to help you differentiate them

Now the fun part!!

Color harmonies are basically techniques for choosing colors. Since SAI’s color wheel is kinda a disaster I recommend just looking up a color wheel on google or you can use this one here.

You can pick any of the techniques there (heres a more in depth explanation of each technique) and just start experimenting with them! Here’s some tips to get you started:

  • Don’t take the techniques literally!! You can toggle your colors all around, just use it as a base
  • Saturated colors =/= good color scheme balance it out!
  • Contrast is your pal remember that but too much of it can hurt your eyes :(
  • I usually use a maximum of 5 [or 6] colors and a minimum of 3 for making palettes. 4 is usually the most common one used
  • I pick 1-2 very saturated colors and the rest are up to the mixing
  • HAVE FUN!!

Here are some palettes I made using each techniques:

Hope this helps!!

happy && in love !!

Honestly I love seeing the natural roots on unnatural colored hair. It looks like your hair reacts to something the air and turns into this fantastic color, like the rays from the sun or moon or stars or there’s magic in the air that creates a chemical reaction and your hair can only grow an inch or so before it becomes this violent beautiful color

Like there’s so many good and convincing wigs anymore so the roots show its your real, growing hair that just can’t help being magical

Okay but listen, please, because Magnus calling Alec “shadowhunter” in that voice with all that affection, looking at him like that, was hot af but please fandom do not try to make it a thing that can go both ways. Because no matter how much Alec comes to love and respect Magnus, calling him “warlock” will never be an affectionate thing. There’s way too much racist weight to the way shadowhunters call downworlders by their specific race as if that’s all that defines them. And it’s just never going to be cute. Besides Alec really does love and respect Magnus too much to try to use that as any kind of pet name. He’s seen Magnus’ face when other people do it. He just wouldn’t.

Neither of them thought a grand western wedding was their style, but somehow they ended up having one with matching lavender tuxedos and a big cake. Reigen ended up getting blackout-drunk from the welcoming toast, and instead of going through the original plan, their first dance was just slow-dancing with Serizawa holding Reigen upright. When others tried to tease Reigen about it afterwards, Serizawa shut them down uncharacteristically bluntly. He had been listening to the hiccup-y, giggly sobs of “I can’t believe I won’t be lonely anymore, Katsu” and “Who’d think I’d deserve to feel this kind of happiness” through the whole dance. 

yuppp still working through all of these in serirei, this time with a more muted color experiment
