My color process by griffsnuff My color process by griffsnuff
I am sorry for any typos xD


When I color things, I dont really think to much, it runs on autopilot most of the time. I just try diffrent things out til I like how it looks, this shows some of that process I think xD hope its understandable.

Another thing is if you use black and white and grey and just draw with them, then add a layer and chose the option Color, or copy the black and white layer, lock transparency, and color away. Hope this might help somebody worried they'll mess up colors, if you do just go back to the original layer, duplicate, and try again.

This was really helpful! I've always struggled with finding colors that work together, and making pieces that stand out. Hopefully this will change things :D

You kinda inspired me to do some kind of test about using more of the spectrum, But I'm not exactly sure it turned out well: fav.me/d7jwnst

Important thing is that I tried. XD

Thanks for the tip, but according with the color theory: complementary colors, triad, tetrad and etc... they do include in this theory? Right?
Oh and the fourth picture is great, giving a popping effect.

You are my absolute top favorite resource as an artist and the creative process and natural learning.  I so appreciate that you share these things because it reminds me and other people to do them instead of letting the journey slide or look to text books for simple answers.  So thank you so much for all these little reminders and seeing it actually taking place in your work.  You're the best!
