I ACTUALL Y HAVE NO SYSTEM i just go with my gut ha hahaa. .. but I GUESS IN GENERAL Don’t be afraid to use saturated colors!! AS LONG AS YOU HAVE A BALANCE OF SATURATED AND DESATURATED COLOR YOU WON”T END UP BLINDING YOURSELF!
THIS IS JUST A GENERAL GUIDE cause whether a color looks saturated/ desaturated also depends on the colors around it!! and black and white can kinda go either way depending on things BUT USUALLY AS U MOVE TOWARDS THE GREYS = less saturated
SAT = SATURATED; DESAT= DESATURATED
here’s a screenshot of my swatches where i sometimes save colors i like!
they’re mostly skin colors though SWEATS..
THERE”S ALSO THIS VIDEO THAT I WATCHED TODAY and I actually color in a rly similar way?? SO MAYBE IT MIGHT HELP
omg im not sure if i answered your question
The visual linguistics of a comic book page
People who read the English written word scan text from left to right. Once our eyes hit the end of the page, we stop. Then ding!, like an old-time typewriter, our eyes shift downward and snap back to the left to start reading the next line. This is known as a “Z-path,” as our eyes whip about like the end of Zorro’s sword.
But that linear track gets derailed in comics with complex layouts and Cohn wanted to know if experienced readers had strategies to follow along.
Cohn rustled up 145 participants at the 2004 Comic-Con International, a comic book convention held in San Diego. Participants had varying experience with reading comics, ranging from “never” to “often.”
Each participant was given a booklet containing 12 pages of blank panels. Each page was independent of the rest and used different design techniques.
ETA: For anyone who may look at those panels and say: “But, actual comics don’t have sequences/pages/images like those!” — Neil Cohn has a great follow-up post on this research: Violating comics…for science!
23 minutes of all the important bits of color theory. Man, I so could’ve used this when I was in college.Another super useful and well worded video on art things! Color, in this case. I really like the way this guy talks on stuff.
Really nice vid.
A fellow RISD friend Devon is the senior concept artist at Motiga and they are about to be releasing Gigantic, which looks like a whole basket of awesome. The character design and the whole visual layout just straight up wins all the points.
Check out Devon’s work here: Gorrem
And go to the Gigantic website and watch the video! It will make your brain melt.
THINGS THAT ARE SEVERELY COOL BUT MY COMPUTER WOULD DIE TRYING TO PLAY.
