You have such a wonderful touch with color! Where do you get your inspiration for these super fun palettes? Any tips on How to Color Good©?

AHH thank you!!   I’m really bad about using smart correct ART terms for what I do lol so idk how useful any advice I give would be but

Main source of inspiration is just.. I really love colors lol.  Colors make me SO HAPPY and I guess using more = more happy lmao, that’s why most of my stuff is so saturated.

As far as character palettes go, what I do is figure out 3-4 dominant colors that fit the character and then make every other color compliment those colors.  For in-game characters I’ll eyeball the palette straight off the models and then alter each color so they work together a little better.  

In Photoshop I put every color on it’s own separate layer and then mess with the sliders in Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation on each individual color until I like it.  I might find one color I really like and alter the colors around it to compliment it. 

90% of what I do is push those sliders around until I like what I see. \o/  If you do this enough you’ll start to passively learn what colors feel best together and against each other.  I’ve been doing it for yeeears. 

Sometimes even if I like a color it’s good to slide it around anyway to see if I can make a stronger or more interesting palette.

Most of my stuff is very saturated and rainbowy because I LIKE EVERY COLOR and every color can work together if you mess around with it enough lol

(WIPs lol)

Design is important but the colors you use should be part of the story too.  Color should always make you feel something because color speaks!  Sometimes it’s very soft and sometimes it’s very loud, but it’s like the music that goes along with the narration.  It sets the atmosphere of a piece. 

I LOVE using limited palettes too, though.  Limiting my colors to just 3-4 forces me to tell the story more clearly because I can’t rely on colors to make certain things obvious.  Makes me think a lil different because layers and opacity can turn few colors into many.  

I usually only use limited palettes for comic/storytelling stuff, otherwise I make everything rainbow lol COLOR MAKES ME SO HAPPY and I wanna share that happiness!

Yuuri Katsuki for aesthetic posts

I love Viktuuri “aesthetics”. I almost love them more than drawn fan art. Aesthetics are lovely and colorful and life-like that I just can’t get enough of them!

My problem with many aesthetic posts though is that it seems that more often than not, Korean (and sometimes Chinese) actors and models are used for Yuuri Katsuki. Now before anyone goes, “Omg you’re one of those nationality snobs” (idk, is that even a thing, lol) hear me out! I have nothing against Korean people; I love them and I think they are very good-looking. It’s only that (and this is probably an Asian thing) I can recognize a Korean from a Japanese person fairly easily. To me, they do not look alike. I actually don’t know any of the guys used for the aesthetic posts or mood boards I have seen, but I definitely know a Korean guy when I see one. I therefore cannot count the number of times I’ve scrolled through such posts and went, “Dang it, I love the feel of this and I even love the look of the guy who is supposedly Yuuri, but why oh why does he not look Japanese!?”

I know, I have issues. But! If you’re like me, or in case you just feel like you need them (*wink wink*), here are a few Japanese celebrities for all your live-action Yuuri Katsuki needs. ♥

Kento Yamazaki (22)

This kid tops most Yuuri Katsuki fan cast lists that I have seen, and with good reason. I mean look at this guy! He’s perfect for the part. Yamazaki can do both cute Katsudon and sexy Eros. Granted, he seems to do the former more often than the latter – but then isn’t that also perfect? Even his ratio of soft:sexy is on-point Yuuri.

Also granted, his sexy is actually kind of confusing because he’s still cute when he does sexy? But, again, this is probably also on-point Yuuri. ♥

Masaki Okada (27)

Here’s another guy with a precious face. What I find most striking about Okada as Yuuri is the hair – doesn’t he look like he would make a great growing-his-hair-in-St. Petersburg!Yuuri? ♥

I also think he is fairly versatile, since his face could pass for someone younger. He could be current or older Yuuri, whichever of him you might need.

Ryunosuke Kamiki (23)

What I love about the feel of the photos that come up for Kamiki is he seems fit for your typical AU!Yuuri. I have no idea why this fandom is so into AU, but you know the drill – handsome, quiet/timid mysterious guy Viktor meets in the park, library, book shop, pharmacy, etc. and Viktor just falls in love at first sight.

Funny thing about this guy, though: he seems to do well in intelligent psychotic roles? People might recognize him for his role as Soujiro Seta in the live-action Rurouni Kenshin, but he also played Takeru Amaya in Kamisama no Iu Toori. Random bit of info, but I thought the Killing Stalking crowd might like it (a.k.a., the crazier side of the YOI fandom, lmao).

Takeru Satoh (28)

There are a lot of great things about Satoh, who is probably most recognized for his role as Kenshin Himura in Rurouni Kenshin. Satoh is my peg for older Yuuri, or Yuuri down the road, five-or-so years in in the relationship but still has Viktor head-over-heels and wrapped around his little finger. And why wouldn’t Viktor be, if Yuuri grows up to being this? There is a very mature, very homey feel to Satoh’s photos that it is easy to picture him at home, in a winter sun-lit room, playing with your dog.

Another thing I love about Satoh is I sort of think he slightly looks like Daisuke Takahashi? As in Takahashi, inspiration for Yuuri Katsuki’s skating style Takahashi. I have always thought Takahashi has an outgoing, almost flirty kind of face, which is not very Yuuri, but Satoh seems to have that Takahashi vibe, but sort of… more quiet? Like he is more reserved, and so kind of closer to Yuuri. I have no idea if this is making sense, but I just love him more for this little thing.

Last but definitely not the least for Satoh: “Takeru Satoh glasses” is Google’s gift to mankind. The guy looks great in glasses, ’m just saying.

Jin Akanishi

I was unsure whether to include this guy in the list because it is rather hit-or-miss with him, but I decided that the few hits make him list-worthy. I would definitely use him more for Eros!Yuuri or drunk Yuuri. I mean guh, he has that messy tie look down, doesn’t he?

Fair warning though that his pictures can get pretty wild. I think I even saw a naked pic somewhere while sifting through his photos jfc

Anyone else have other good candidates? :)

gonna use this mob to finally explain my COLORING PROCESS.. and how i go from these base colors to the final product .. 

i always start with my base colors, which are almost always the same, so i keep a color palette to choose from. I usually pick the skin tone first and then change the hue for diff colors (I sometimes change the saturation and brightness too) The example below is the skin tone i use almost Always.. and of course it can be changed later on

Well sorry for my weird imaginations idk (*´∇`*) ╮(╯▽╰)╭ (╥﹏╥). Lol i forgot susanoo have a sword … T-T xD Which color is better?(。’▽’。)♡ Hope you guys love it (♡˙︶˙♡)

floatingheadcomics  asked:

Any tips on colouring faces? Like you, I've been drawing for years now but only recently have I started going into the technicalities of it. I'm self taught and hope to get as good as you :) thank you for inspiring me and others just like myself. Love your art (duhh) <3

Oh gosh, coloring is my weakest point honestly. And I’m especially bad with faces D:

Errr, the most I can suggest is studying the anatomy and planes of the face. Knowing how the face works really helps you properly place shadows and highlights and brings a lot of depth to your art, especially with soft shading.

Here’s some crappy example sheet thingys I made eons ago so you can kind of see what I’m talking about:

[ Yellow: lights / Red: shadows / Blue: lol idk why I made it blue but it’s just more shadows ]

In terms of cel/hard shading, I suggest keeping it simple. Overall it depends on your art style and preferences, but personally speaking my art looks like crap when I go overboard with hard shading. Someone like Danica Sills is quite excellent at it though; I def recommend watching some of her videos for reference.

Also this might be obvious but it’s really important to know where you want your light source to be when it comes to coloring/shading. Is the light hitting your character from the top left?? Straight on??? From behind??? This drastically changes how you shade and also affects the mood of your art.

As for colors themselves, don’t just shade with a black/grey or darker color of the skin. Try nudging the color to a more warm or cool tone. Example:

As you can see the face has more life to it with a pinkish shade vs. just a darker orange. Also its very subtle but even the highlight is moved to yellow instead of beige. Basically I pick my base color and then go slightly up the color-wheel for hightlights and down the wheel for shadows.

Besides this I don’t really know what else to say??? I’m sorry, this is all terribly unhelpful :/

I HIGHLY recommend watching tutorials/speedpaints on YouTube, that’s where I’ve learned how to do most of this stuff. I can’t remember any videos I’ve watched on coloring skin, but somebody like Sycra probably has one (his video’s in general have helped me improve A LOT).

Thank you for your kind words! :’D And good luck on your art journey! Being self taught is really difficult, but there’s plenty of resources for us online to learn from so there’s nothing holding you back. I hope you have fun and find success in all your endeavors <3<3

Promo?

My name is Goose and I’m a pretty cool person.
I write and draw but like….once in a blue moon because my motivation is a cryptid but you can see all that I’ve already written and drawn and stuff and enjoy those?
Also I’m really chill and love talking to people?
And if you reblog this I’ll write you something when my motivation for short short fics comes back, just leave a ship in the tag? And I’ll make a list. (You just have to be okay with waiting for months lol).
