“the gems’ palettes are so oversaturated and gross looking now !!!! it’s terrible show design !!!”
steven universe is actually great with color design and utilizes a lot of specific color palettes for specific SETTINGS. it does so much better with varied palettes than most shows out ive watched (and there’s a LOT).
what you’re complaining about here is the day palette or “default colors”. don’t quote me on the terminology there. this is what they look like without specific lighting hitting them it’s just white light that;s the point of the day palette i’m sorry charlie please stop crying
Do you have any tips for composition?? I'm a beginner on that and I really love the way you do it
thank you! (again ive never had any real training in any of this) but i would say! know your basic composition rules/template things- golden ratio, golden spiral, etc, first of all. For me personally, i draw a lot of wide open spaces/backgrounds so MOST of my composition are rule-of-thirds ( i really should try the spiral more often).
second, think about line balances/unbalance. it’s about the mood you want to set. for example, with the first drawing i wanted a very laid-back tranquil mood, so i wanted a sense of balance with my composition with the upward slope of one hill being canceled out with the downward slope of the second. for the second one, however, i wanted some energy, so i sought to create an upset with the lines.
third, i’d consider color balances/ imbalances. colors have SO much say in where your eye travels around the picture (and also im a color FREAK). you can use darker colors to frame a picture if your piece feels too big and empty and you want the focus to narrow down without actually making the canvas smaller:
if you want the viewer’s eyes to just travel around the picture and take the whole thing in, distribute colors evenly throughout the canvas. (sorry it’s so messy, but you get the point) think about the distribution of hue, saturation, and darkness/lightness.
if you want them to focus on that ONE thing, you can concentrate saturation, brightness, warmness etc to make the area pop. i used all three in these drawings!
also! @genicetea has some NEEAATT stuff on drawing the viewer’s eye and contrasts and composition on her twitter so if you want something that actually makes sense go there!
hope that helps a little! and sorry for the long post but you all should really expect that by now :’)
