I dont think its a matter of vision or perception, its just a matter of what you call it...

 

Personally, I think youre both right. Doug first called it "green brown". SiliconJedi called it "darkened yellow". Darkened yellow is in fact the colour on the spectrum between darkened green and brown - theyre the same colour.

 

Bright: Green -> Yellow -> Orange

Dark: Green -> Olive -> Brown

I endorse that solution and bury my obstinate delusions. It's as much green-brown as green is blue-yellow.

 

I can't believe I just got into a epeen duel over color knowledge....

If we're going to play that game, my last color acuity test was about three months ago. Per that test, my color acuity is "superior", a result of my not making any mistakes in any of the four sets of color chips. When was your last test? :rolleyes:

 

Five minutes ago. Perfect score.

I'm impressed that you were able to find a chip set and a calibrated light that fast.

 

Well done.

My colour acuity is so perfect that I was part of a small sample used to calibrate CMYK values to human-perceptible colours in the early 90's.

 

Since then it has gotten better.

 

Before any of you decide to argue with me you should know that I am a professional, and I say "that's an olive drab, not a drab olive" for over $500 an hour.

I should add that I use my colour acuity in a lab, discerning highly toxic from benign moulds in very expensive cheeses. Every time I judge olive drab, lives are on the line. They use me because I am more accurate than a machine.

I used to get $10.00/hour for my color acuity. So I am a professional too. :-P

 

Seriously, just because you have objective evidence that you are good at color matching doesn't mean I'm not better. It just means that all I'm hanging on is the internet, my subjective experience, and a big ol' arrogant streak.

 

And you full well know I did one of those online jobbies for the test. It's all I need for this completely nerdy argument.

 

And I am more accurate than a machine too, sparky. Machines are terrible at color matching.

Well, if we're going to use RGB where projected red and green light create yellow, that we should also open up the emitted vs reflected color theories, RGB vs CYMK!

I have a box of 64 Crayola and a 3 year old scribbler. Based on my experience I can tell you Olive Drab clearly tastes delicious and is a b***h to get off a wall without a Mr Clean Magic Eraser. He also says its diarrhea poop color.

 

That clearly solves all color theory issues.

      For those that put beads in their paint to help with shaking what sized beads do you use? I was looking at some 8mm hematite beads but I want to be sure I get something that won't stick in the tip.

      Hi all!  I haven't posted here in a while as I had to take a break from painting to do some remodeling on my house. That was two years ago.    Finally able to get back to this hobby I love so I wanted to organize my paint desk some.  I designed some paint racks to store my mini paints and figured that someone else might benefit from them as well.  I posted them on Thingiverse for all to use.  Totally free and open source!!
       
      I am adding to them as people ask for additional brands of paint and other configurations.  If anyone prints them and needs some changes or additional options just let me know and I will be happy to see what I can do.  
       
      Looking forward to getting involved again in this great community!!

      Forgive me if there is an obvious answer for this, I've never been to Reapercon before. I am needing quite a few Reaper paints. Will they be for sale at the Con? If so, would they have a Show discount? If not, I'll just go ahead and order some from Reaper now.
       
      Thanks

      Right then, here's another question about the Reaper paint line. The last question was two months ago but I still feel like I'm bugging everyone. Anyway, I've decided to finally take the plunge and do some serious paint ordering for my solo game miniatures. Before I order at the end of the month (to get that Diva model for nothing), there seems to be a hiccup: there are a few different black paints in the line.
       
      I'm looking for a black to basecoat... black, funnily enough. There's Pure Black, Dragon Black, Noir Black, Nightmare Black, etc. Which of these (and the others not listed) would be closest to Citadel's Abaddon Black? Some of the blacks have a blue hue, brown hue, or whatever for different looks, but it's hard to tell from the sample mockups which ones have those hues and which don't. If anyone could break those down for me, I'd be grateful.
