The Color Course: Understanding Color

Instructor: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)

Expert Input: Mel Herring (PurpleKecleon) or more recently GlitchedPuppet

This first half of the color course focuses on understanding color from the terms associated with color, how lights project color, choosing color schemes, and much more. We go into different discussions like why Red and Cyan are considered true complimentary colors instead of red and green.

We begin first breaking down what is Color? Why is there confusion when figuring out what is considered Red? As we continue throughout this course we will constantly refer back to the three terms that better explain what color is.

From there we dive into working digitally and the differences that brings when working with color projected with light rather than pigments. Once you begin understanding working in RGB (Red, Green, Blue) then it becomes easier understanding how colors mix in this digital format.

Working with color, we need to understand the color wheels associated with art and the difference between the traditional and modern color wheels. We will then show you how to choose these colors accurately from within Photoshop.

Then we take the time to look at the terms associated with color such as tint, tone, shade, monochromatic, greyscale, analogous, complimentary, and warm/cool. There are a lot of color terms but they are quite simple once you know the meaning of each.

The last section in our understanding color course looks at creating basic color schemes and we have a guest appearance from one of our favorite color artists, Mel Herring giving her insights on working with color as well!

Ok. The thing that bothers me the most about GP is the fact she and her partner chased a Steven Universe writer off Tumblr then someone on the crew cameo her characters in the SU comics. Don't know about you, but my co-workers are my family and I wouldn't even like someone who did that to them.

Oh yeah this is true! All because Pearl said she liked pie, of all fucking things.


Eevee joined in too


Matt Burnett then deactivated their tumblr after this shit.

Oh, and this is totally unrelated, but here’s a good summary of what happened when everyone started to criticize Glips new comic that turned into a meme

anonymous asked:

What's your thoughts on what Glip responded on twitter?

It’s intentionally manipulative, to be blunt. But I’m glad you sent me this ask because I wanted to go through this. Warning: I talk a lot.

First things first, PK lied out of the gate by saying our only reasoning was the old Pengo call out, when, honestly....no one is talking about Pengo. The Pengo situation was shitty, but it was receipt-less, we don’t know what the fuck actually happened. We’re talking about the time PK harassed Matt Burnett off tumblr over Pearl liking Pie. We’re talking about the time Eevee said he was uncomfortable with child porn being illegal. We’re talking about PK’s admitted fetish for teaching sex to children in conjunction with how they want their legacy to be kids reading their porn, And how in order to get the full story for Floraverse you have to read the porn, meaning children who want the plot to floraverse will have to read the fucking porn. We’re talking about the time PK said they hated the furry community because there where too many gays. We’re talking about the time PK ripped off artists by underpaying them to contribute to a Floraverse product. We’re talking about the time PK called people with autism “emotionless robots”.

PK starts off by saying the reason people are calling them out is because of Pengo, but it’s not, PK knows this. We’re calling PK out because of the multiple recorded incidents of them being awful, and…..yet PK says we’re doing it because of Pengo? Don’t you think that’s just, idk, really suspicious? Like they’re trying to mislead people who haven’t seen the posts floating around that it’s no big deal, it was just one incident that was recanted..?

Moving onto the next paragraph..

PK is right kind of here, but their words aren’t reflective of this particular situation. Call outs can and are horrible when it’s misinformation being spread, but, how is what we’re spreading misinformation? All we really have are screen caps and archives. While screen caps can be edited, nothing has been shown them to be edited. And Archives cannot be faked period. It’s a false comparison simply because we’re not spreading misinformation, we’re not being nitpicky because of something stupid we’re spreading screen caps and archives showing people things that PK has actually fucking said. PK called people with autism emotionless robots. Eevee said they where uncomfortable with child porn being illegal. PK and Eevee both harassed Matt Brunette. PK has admitted to wanting 13 year olds reading forbidenflora and has also admitted to a fetish about teaching kids sex. These things have come right out of the horses mouth. And posting proof that these things where said is not misinformation.

Next Paragraph:

Now, I can’t speak for everyone against Glip, but.

I hate the fact that I hate them now. 

I looked up to Glip for so long, they where my art idol growing up. A person to become. I purchased their art books and supported them financially. I participated in PMD-E, I was even in the IRC for a bit and contributed to the wiki with art. But now? I just feel dirty. I was one of the few children who didn’t look at porn, but I saw a ton of PK’s porn- mostly because it was hard to avoid as a fan of theirs, and now that I know they get off to that shit I feel violated. I hate the fact someone I idolized turned out to be this way.

I don’t do this because I hate pk, I do this because I believe people have a right to know where their money is going too.

That being said.

PK has not once apologized for ANYTHING they have said or done.

Pk is still doing the shit they where doing years ago.

They have not stopped being so horrible to people in general, nor stopped with their casual pedophilia, nor recanted their homophobic and ableist comments and they don’t ever try to improve their lgbt+ representation. PK is openly sexist even now. PK doesn’t even attempt to apologize, not even here!

So, quite frankly. Pk can take their “my call outs are irrelevant because I’m trying to improve” and shove it up their god damn ass.

If PK actually improves, apologizes and the like- well. I can’t speak for everyone who takes issue with them but I know I personally would back down. I was never as bad as PK but I know people can go from awful to somewhat ok from personal experience.  But as far as I’m concerned PK is an active threat to children, artists and lgbt people in general. They’re a horribly toxic person and should be labeled as such.

I’m going to skip forward because Glip then continues to talk about call outs in general, but ignores how their call outs are all archives and not he said she said and things that glip is still actively doing. I don’t want to be accused of cutting what they said out of context so here’s the entire tweet btw.

It wasn’t a false fucking accusation and PK is straight up lying here.

People reported the kickstarter because Glip admitted to putting money into the KS themselves, a direct violation of Kickstarters terms and services.

Oh, and here is PK being a bitch to someone who was genuinely trying to warn PK about this because they where a backer and didn’t want to see the KS get taken down. Just a fun little note.

To recap,

PK’s little twitter rant is intentionally manipulative. It reduces our entire issue with PK down to one incident, and then falsely equates PK situation with a situation in which lies are being spread out of hostility, instead of screen caps and archives being spread. This rant was likely only done to save face because there’s a correlation between how many people know the true nature of PK and how much money people give PK. It’s shitty, and it’s really meaningless in regards to changing my opinion on them for the better.

Eevee wrote a 60 fucking page response to people on tumblr calling shit out, and my friend screencapped this which stuck out in particular.

love how, to Eevee, saying “stop fetishing your trans characters” means they have to remove them.

To these people, they can’t imagine having trans characters and not fetishizing them.

There are trans people literally saying that this is fetishistic, because you’re using your trans characters for their genitals and nothing more. But ok.

Also this fucker had the audacity to compare using an old username to deadnaming trans people, I wish I was fucking joking.

I had to repost this from another account so it would show up in tags.

I’m sure that many of you reading this tag know about GlitchedPuppet’s NSFW comic Something Greater, located on ForbiddenFlora.  Something Greater is a comic describing how Amdusias and Orobas’s relationship came to be.

However, many people reading the comic became uncomfortable.  Throughout the comic, Amdusias looks extremely upset, terrified, and displeased with the things that are happening to her.  Not once in the comic does Amdusias look pleased, happy, or even neutral, really; however, Orobas ignores this.  There is even a scene during which Amdusias grits her teeth and asks Orobas to pull out of hertwice, and Orobas remains inside Amdusias anyway.

GlitchedPuppet and Eevee responded to this with the fact that Amdusias always looks uncomfortable no matter what she’s doing, and that sometimes, someone’s first time isn’t ideal.  Okay, fair enough.  But there is something even more important about Something Greater, and even more disturbing:

Amdusias has no idea what sex is, how it works, or why people would do it.

Amdusias, in the beginning of the comic, is extremely uncomfortable at the idea of sex, but agrees to do it anyway.  This can be explained by nervousness of trying a new thing… but when Orobas shows Amdusias her penis, Amdusias truly has no idea what it is.  She has no idea what it’s for, what it does, or what to do with it.

When Orobas finally does penetrate Amdusias, Amdusias says things like “are we having sex?  Is this it?” and even asks why they are doing it.  This is not someone who has had any type of sexual education at all.  This is not someone who knows what sex is.

Orobas seems to know this.  Rather than giving Amdusias information about sex, however, she “teaches” her about it by having sex with her.  Someone who has literally no knowledge of sex - can they truly consent to sex?  Would you teach someone about sex by having sex with them?  Is that what sex education should be?  At the beginning of the comic, Amdusias has the sexual knowledge of a child - that is to say, none.

When I decided to point this out, I saw that I had been blocked by ForbiddenFlora from commenting:

In addition, all of my comments had been removed.

Glip, if you are going to silence me on your comic pages, then I am going to speak out elsewhere.  Because I do not think that this is a healthy example of sex,and just because you either cannot or do not want to refute my points doesn’t mean that my points are invalid.  Amdusias had no knowledge of sex, was asking why they were doing as they were doing it, and looked extremely uncomfortable and upset the entire time.  The fact that this makes people uncomfortable isn’t a bad thing.

This is ignoring the last part of the comic, where Orobas is chastising Amdusias for assuming they were in a relationship after having sex.  I wonder why Amdusias might assume that?  Perhaps because she doesn’t know anything about sex or its connotations?  Perhaps because she assumed that Orobas wanted to have sex with her for an emotional reason, rather than just a one night stand?

I am not attacking or accusing Glip in any of the above.  I simply wanted to facilitate conversation about consent and safe sex, and explain why some felt the way that they do.  Apparently, according to you, this means that “people suck”.

It does not.  Wanting to discuss this does not make people suck.  What makes people suck is silencing them and ignoring what they have to say, rather than saying “we have a different viewpoint on this” or even “I don’t wish to discuss this, and I don’t see your point”.  

Never did I antagonize.  Never was I rude or inappropriate.  I only wished to communicate my point and see what Glip had to say about it - maybe I was wrong, after all, and maybe they did have something to refute the above.  But banning me from commenting, and deleting all of my previous comments, really does just affirm what I already believed.

If I was being exceptionally rude, “antagonistic”, or inappropriate any more so than you were, Glip - please, show what I said that was so awful.  I stand by my belief that I was respectful and thought out my comments before I posted them.    If anyone has a logical, truthful refute to the above - please, point it out!  As I said, I would like to discuss this.  If I’m wrong, then I’m wrong - but if I do have a point, and other people’s feelings are valid (and feelings are valid in the first place), then I won’t be insulted or silenced.

Glip, you’re not fooling anyone you selfish scam artist

Also, yesterday I made some tweets about this, but if you don’t want to participate because 20 dollars isn’t enough for you – that’s wonderful, and I hope you find some other thing to participate in that’s to your liking and pay amount! I absolutely encourage anyone to not do cheap work for something they don’t like or want to have fun with.

A job being fun is not good justification for it paying below minimum wage.

I’m 100% aware 20 dollars isn’t much, but then, no one else was supposed to be participating in this in the first place until people asked about being able to! And I don’t really want to bankrupt myself on a fun thing that’s mostly to be distributed either cheaply, or given for free in some cases, at comic conventions.

You’re selling the end result, even if cheaply. So it is not a “fun” thing to do no matter how many times you call it that. It’s a project that will return a profit for you, based on art of your character. If you weren’t selling the end result Glip and offering it as a free pdf/zip folder download, this entire thing would be more understandable but you are so this is a completely different ballgame. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say this again.

Glip, if you cannot afford to fairly compensate artists for a project that involves selling their art. You cannot afford the project in the first place.

I have a lot more to say about this sort of topic, but many zines do not pay at all, because they’re a small fun thing. Or they pay a small amount, because that’s what the person can afford… and it’s still a fun thing.

“Other people rip off artists so it’s ok when I rip off artists!”

“Other people steal from others so it’s ok when I steal from people!”

“Other people do this action that I normally condemn but since it’s “fun” it’s now ok!”

Glip. No matter how many times you repeat the word fun, it does not make the fact that you are under paying people who contribute to your work and selling it for a profit. In an industry that is already notorious for not paying the workers enough. You are contributing to the problem. Own the fuck up to it.

I’m participating in a different zine right now with dozens of other artists, with the payrate being 20/page, because I want to. I’ve worked for less, too. Does that mean you have to, or should? Not at all. But some people like to participate in a community thing and have fun, and payment is a bonus. So… 

Still doesn’t change the fact the pay rate is still abysmally small. I think a worker should at least make minimum wage when their work is being used for someone else’s profit. I think it is wrong for you to use someones love of a work to get them to work for what’s basically nothing.

Under paying people is fucking wrong Glip.

Also, yeah, we know you totally really don’t care about those upset at the pay rate, with you constantly blocking those that say “hey this is under priced”, deleting their comments (so the potential unaware artists won’t know perhaps???) and you already showed your true colors about this topic any way to people…

You selfish, ego inflated, fake, scam artist.

If anything, you’re just sorry your “love and respect all artists” facade got caught in the lie.
