Let's Put Some COLOR Onto This Here Blog!!!


I really do like colors. I like it just as much as I like black and white. Actually there's no particular difference with both, except maybe colors are more harmonious than black and white. I'm pretty sure some of you'll disagree with me on this, but I seriously don't know too much information on colors. Just basics really, but all I know is that it's the best type of thing to experiment with and you get to make up an infinite amount of different colors too. Colors are endless! And that's why colors can be classified as a fun thing or as an art thing. When I see something really colorful I get real happy.

When I use color on a painting or whatever I try to establish some sort of mood. Something that represents the painting itself and something that represents me. I try to establish my own personal style of colors. I also try to be caroony with my colors. I love cartoon colors and I love making some up.

Check out this colored pencil drawing I did. I find that the colors seem pretty interesting, especially how they work around the most representational thing in the drawing, which is the dog person. I think I made the mistake of focusing on one thing rather than the whole thing of the piece. I focused more on the mood rather than the composition itself, which helps create or enhance the mood of the piece. I pretty much captured the colors I wanted for this drawing, but I think I just got in too deep with it and thought less of the whole thing.

This other drawing here made out of markers on marker paper, is probably less planned out than the colored pencil one. It's got less colors and more negative spaces. This one was done pretty quick too. This one I think establishes a mood even though I had no intention on putting a mood there. With the colors, I know I had to make the colors contrast with each other. I always have to be aware of that when I work with colors. I love how the orange, purple and yellow play with each other beneath the two characters. I think those colors contrast well with each other, especially since yellow and purple compliment each other well. I got into more detailed things with this drawing as well, instead of the whole thing, but the the colors work nicely I think.

Hey! Check out my next concepts for two paintings I want to do. I'm gonna start out as soon as I can!

kp--devils rock something hard!

sam--keep waiting my friend! hopefully it'll be all worth it in the end!

brian--thanks, man! It's cool that you see energy in my lines. I'm chock full of it and I try to show it as much as I can in my drawings.

klangley--thanks! I just finished seeing that post on the Clampett model sheets. I love studying all those model sheets and read all those little notes around the characters. I wonder how animators back then came up with such creative and appealing looks for those characters.
