That's what's up! Color is really a whole nother world with all the nuances and complexities it can add. Not to say that grayscale and black and white don't have these complexities bc they do, but not having to worry about hue and focus on contrast and value narrows the focus a bit, or so I like to think, but not everyone has the same thoughts on that so neat hearing that color is more natural to you!
Oh I'm loving the individual goals you have set for your color evolution journey too! I think that's super helpful for making process that's easy to see and keeps goals obtainable.
Yooooo I feel you there. I love seeing how artist are able to use layer modes to impact the feel of a page, but it doesn't work the same for all styles for sure. That's something I want to play with more, but haven't had much luck so far, but there are tons of more things to consider that i can play with and see how it looks when it comes to that though. Yeah, if somethings confusing, start from the basics, that's pretty good advice to follow.
I see exactly what you mean for your character designs at the bottom. They all look like they come from the same world! Though they all have different colors, they have that unifying coolness about them that brings them together in a line up (also baller shoe designs) so your color exercises are definitely showing through! (defiantly and definitely are just two of my many English grammar banes).
Thanks for sharing!!
