/pokes Hey... do you have any tips on choosing blending colours? I tend to pick more saturated & darker of the same shade because I know next to nothing about colour theory and it makes my art look really flat.

ofools:

uhh hm idk how to really talk about this since i’m not really confident with colour theory lingo, though i know some basics.

the stuff i choose in the beginning normally is a saturated and lighter version than what the finished product will be, normally, and i usually just play it by eye depending on what mood or what the lighting is ie. sunrise/sunset which is my favourite, usually ends up with really warm, bright, saturated colours, while evening or before sunrise its usually cooler and less saturated and cooler, and then middle of the day is almost “white light” and “true” colours

idk the thing i do is high contrast and saturation, called chiaroscuro so most of the colours i pick are for high contrasting, highly saturated and warm environments while still being naturalistic, and i mostly go: what is the current environment lighting in scene > what mood do i want to convey > what is the colour of the object naturally > what is the colour of the object under these conditions

but i still fiddle with the colours and they can end up different from my initial plan, and i end up doing a lot of levels and contrast work:

i usually try to pick like, one or two major “bright” colours like red or blue or green and then a bunch of “mud” colours to fill in and boost the chosen colours

yea h

sorry i really don’t know how to put it into words i honestly just pick and see what works and fiddle with the levels and contrast until i have something i like and works

Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff

My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk. 

My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2

My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits. 
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving

Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s. 

As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!
