Every now and then I do something crazy like actually play the Sims instead of all the other stuff I do.

I also haven’t listed what is in the display cabinet because I am pretty sure you can’t see what is in there but if you can and are curious just message me.

hi lina! how do you do your recolours? they;re always so accurate to the palette, whenever i try and recolour something the colour looks off somehow. but yours are always accurate!
Hi!(first, sorry in advance for the crappy explanation, I really suck at explaining things D:) I agree that it can be tricky to get 100% close to the color you’re aiming for while also trying to stay as true as possible to the original texture in question. What I do first is to arrange the workspace in photoshop by “2 up vertical” (see picture) window > arrange >
2 up vertical
this way I can see my recolor and the palette that I’m working with at the same time, it helps a lot imo and I can use the colorpicker to spot the differences in the colors (in addition to my eyes :3). After that it’s simply just a lot of playing around with multiplier/brightness/contrast/saturation etc. (I’m afraid I can’t be more helpful there as this process varies from recolor to recolor). Sometimes it’s just really quick & painfree and sometimes I spend hours trying to get as close as possible to the color/palette in question. I hope this helped at least a little bit.
