Akiosama Posted July 13, 2011 Author Share Posted July 13, 2011 Thanks, Anne, for the reply. I understand you all are really busy, so the whole thing was more like a 'Why not ask and see?' sort of thing. I do understand that the process of color selection changes depending on what it is that you're painting, but I thought there might be some sort of general thought process behind the theory that could be hashed out a bit more. I mean, I know what a complementary color is, and a cool or warm color, and such, but using that knowledge in creating a workable paint scheme is not nearly as clear to me. Also, contrast, color value, and saturation rarely get touched on. For example, I've been told previously that cool colors (or warm colors) should harmonize together and look decent together in general, and yet I've had experiences where it doesn't seem to be the case. (I remember trying to do Tyranids up in an ice-blue/violet scheme one time, and when I was done with the test mini, and looked over it over, I almost pitched the mini, I thought the colors clashed so badly.) So, I'm just trying to get a feel for how you painters (Anne & Co. and everyone else who would like to elaborate, too!) decide that "these colors would look good together" without constantly rethinking your color choices constantly. Thanks again, Anne. Keep up the great work - I look forward to seeing more of your art. My 2 yen, Akiosama Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
