Also if you're going to make a whole gang of characters keep in mind to contrast them! if you do 5 pink cats with different colored eyes you will look very uncreative! and don't forget to do different animals as well! :D

Wow. I think I just forgot what the word "Tape" meant while looking at that tutorial!

ducttape -- looks more like toilette paper! xD

ive found tht bright blue or bright green eyes work the best against dark colors. do u think thts good? my icon is an example someone made me. is the colors right? (i cant change but it would be helpful for any future refs. its a breed from a friend)

Any bright color works againts dark colors because you have one of the base contrasts at work which is dark light contrast. What hue of color however fits better together to make the design seem better is both subjective and a cause of other color theory contrasts. Like with your icon, the contrast would be even better if the canines fur were brown/red instead of brown/yellow since red and green are complimentary contrasts and you would get some warmth in there.

its hard to ssee cuz she doesn have a lot. shes mainly a brown/green. cuz my main wolf is brown with green hair and eyes. ^^

hey griff! 8D so after stumbling upon this great tutorial, I kinda sparked up a little idea. I usually have trouble designing my own characters, but my love for designing was most definitely inspired by your skills<3

so, I'm thinking of a gryphon ( from looking at you icon hehe ). I kinda have the whole idea in mind... I just can't think of a good color palette ; A ; I like natural colors with unnatural colors that contrast amazingly well with it. Do you think you can help me? I tried colourlovers.com but there's so many aha
your help would be much appreciated!!<3

griffsnuff Featured By Owner May 29, 2013
Start off by making the natural colored design on the character, and then try to add several diffrent versions of intense unnatural colors ^^ thats how I do it sometimes, and I see what I like best. If you need any help after that you can send them to me and I can look at them then.

Thank you for this, Griffsnuff! I used it to design two new OCs for myself: Civil, a sheep/puppy/adorable hybrid with ram horns, and Navy, a weasel-dragon that wears a jean jacket (I like accessories). XD Awesome tutorial!

When people make an oc they have the picture of the oc and then they have a paper bit where the details are
