“When I was younger, I used to be very afraid of doing anything out there with my makeup because I felt like my hair was such a big strong piece, and then I learned from this show, specifically, that you can really use brighter colors to play up your hair, as well. I used to never wear red” - Madelaine Petsch.
Hi, this took me over an hour to do this and i swear i have no idea how to do tutorials at all, since anon asked I only have this tip from Clip Studio Paint that can help you finalize your painting without making it looking all muddy.

Hey so I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years now, but I’ve never had to chance to do it until now. I had made a “diversity chart” with Google Spreadsheet for the main Disney females. I hope you guys like it, I will be making one for Overwatch, Pixar, and the all of the Disney main characters too. I hope you guys find it interesting or w/e!!
A smaller project but still… we were in dire need of pearls for our ‘upper east side posh’ sims 😉. Click on the pics for better quality! They’re very blurry but I don’t know why… Why tumor?! Why?!?!?!😭😜) I took the pearl necklace that came with the vampire GP apart and created a nice pearl necklace. Small shout-out to these enthusiastic peeps❤️ @eenhoornsims @martinessimblr @standardheld (whom I can’t tag 😕… weird) @aflutters-simblr @nibbsnz.Hope you guys like them!☺️ And of course everyone else!!!
Just Pearls; a version with (as it says :P) just pearls in the vampire palette and the Spring Colors of 2017.
With Amulet; a MM texturen of a rhinestone.
New Mesh. Mesh-edit of EA’s Pearl necklace so; credits to EA.

Don’t claim my creations as your own!
Do not (re)upload my creation to other sites. You wouldn’t like it either.
You can recolor my creation’s just DON’T include the mesh. If you like me to see your recolor’s @# me!☺️
Do NOT put a url shorters to re-direct to MY original mesh.
Give credit, where credit is due.
I do not own/made patterns and/or textures UNLESS stated otherwise.
You can convert them to The Sims 1/ 2 / 3 but let me know first.
Hi! I love the way you use colors on your drawings! Do you have any tips for choosing colors? I always seem to mess them up ;( (Pd: love your comic! ♡)
Hellooo! Aaaa thanks so much!!! Oh gosh! I’m known to be TRULY wild with my color choice so I’m unsure if I’m qualified..! But, regardless, I’d love to help!
To start, there’s no harm in using references for colors, similarly with how you’d use reference for drawing poses, backgrounds, clothing, etc. Here are some sites:
colourlovers - this is my favorite one! Sometimes I’ll search a random word (like “happy,” “friends,” “sunshine,” “sadness”) and pick what I think would fit the mood of my piece. A lot of times I’ll end up editing the colors to fit more what I want, adding a color that complements the rest, or adjusting the values of the colors so my piece will be more balanced. But overall it gives you great ideas and can be a fun exercise to limit yourself with their palettes 💖
pictaculous - upload a photo/pic you like and get a limited color scheme for it!
(anyone please feel free to link other resources in the comments!)
If you’re struggling more with technicalities, I have some tips, too 😁:
1) Don’t rely on local color
This is sort of funny but I didn’t even know what the term “local color” meant until, like, my 3rd year of college? LOL anyway, there’s no reason to use real colors ever! Instead of making your color scheme work around your subject, try stylizing your color choice! Settle on a color scheme and substitute the local color with one that might be similar (or just go wild). For example:
red sand might remind you of brown sand
purple sidewalk might remind you of grey sidewalks (or maybe just sidewalks with a nighttime feeling?)
Landon’s hair is pink instead of red + a pink cactus because I’m Wild
2) Limit your color scheme
It may or may not be obvious that I love to use as few colors as possible… LOL. Doing this is super exciting IMO, because you literally only choose the colors you like!!! DOWN WITH BROWN! I don’t ike brown………… except to eat chocolate
1st img, I used the same red for hair + shirt, the same orange in the jacket details + shoes, and for the jacket + pants I used the same grey but used the color slider and made the pants lighter
2nd img, I used a formula where there’s pink hair/shirt/shorts/shoes (note: that kid is a brunette but I made him have pink hair) + grey hair/shirt/pants/shoes + purple accessories…………….. do you see it, like a zig-zag? Fun, right? 😁
3rd img is where I most obviously used limited colors. I’m sure not every furniture in a house will be blue/purple/green but those are the colors I chose when I started so I just used them! You can do the same with clothing. Nothing has to be real 🎉 WE’RE WILD AND FREE 🎉
3A) Try not to use black or grey
I mean, if it’s part of your color scheme, go for it! But black and 100% grey are pretty heavy and don’t always add to color schemes, especially if you’re trying to be more stylized with them.
in the first 2 examples, the outfits (including the cat bag) are supposed to be all black–but I used shades of purple instead.
3rd img, rather than using just straight up grey, I gave it a more purple-leaning (RGB color code R: 188, G: 169, B: 188)
3B) DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF WITH BLACK LINEART!
Changing the lineart color makes suuuuch a huge difference. I very rarely use black lines in my colored pieces! I go back-and-forth using a lineart color that:
contrasts most of the colors of the piece ➡️ like using a blue line when most of the colors are oranges/yellows or
complements them ➡️ like using a dark purple line in a piece that’s many shades of purples/blues
4) Experiment with overlays
Add a layer on top of your colors/lines ➡️ fill a color (purple? pink? blue?) ➡️ set the layer style to overlay, screen, color burn, soft light, whatever, anything you like! ➡️ lower the opacity (so it’s not super wild, if you want)! Sometimes this will balance the piece by having the colors all lean towards the one color you filled the layer with.
Don’t be afraid to use fill/adjustment layers in Photoshop and play around with the color balance!
5) Think about and plan your colors
Maybe try thinking about what colors mean? Very basically, as an example:
warm colors, yellows, oranges = feels happier
cool colors, blues, purples = sadder, more somber
like, if your goth kid is sad, maybe you’d use cooler and darker tones
maybe your character is super angry so you’ll use a violent, loud shade of red
I say this but all my works are rainbow, so…… LOLOL 😂
Anyway, those are my ideas! I’m not very fancy… //// in fact, I don’t even like to color LOLOL but those are the sorts of things I go with! If you have more questions, feel free to ask. 😚 Most of all, HAVE FUN! Best wishes!!! 💖💖💖
Whew, well this one’s finally finished. Only took like a month to color. ^^; I really like this picture a lot though so I wanted to do it.
Edit: Had to do some minor editing and replace the first pic because I only realized after posting it that I forgot to fix the lines on the ground where I removed the chapter title. I knew I would forget about something. ^^;
