This is going to sound weird, but your color choices made me hungry. XD What did you mean that you work in adobeRGB, by the way?

sorry for the late reply! :thanks: And thank you for the compliment! :chew:
I assume this is set for most programs, but in Clip (my program) you have to manually select the color profile, which changes depending your usage. CMYK is preferred for printing and such. Adobe RGB is a more radiant colour profile and that's what I use when choosing colours :nod: of course, you can change it anytime.

Thank you!  Your tutorial was absolutely great!  I've always had a hard time understanding color, and sometimes all I need is a nudge in the right direction, use these colors, not these, to get this effect.  Thanks for the fav!

IT HELPSS SO MUCH AH THANK YOU.

I already used your tutorial about clouds too, and I don't know why my color schemes also changed after I tried your tuto! Your color schemes is so strong, but I prefer too used the 'dark atmosphere' one. But it helps so much thank youLlama Emoji-05 (Flower Sparkles) [V1]

Have any ideas what a good color combo would be for a character with neon rainbow hair and a super dark, almost black, body??
I have a commission with this and I have NO idea what to do with it.

:iconuchuubranko:
uchuubranko Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2016  Student General Artist
well, late reply is late. :noes: :stare:

I would pick one of the neon colours he has in hair and change it & make it darker than the hair & lighter than the body :noes:

Well yeah a little late since I just posted it last night:
XScreamjay YCH (1) by Noragamiii
I just ended up going with black shading since nothing looked good, and just overlayed some color on top. Now that worked fine for the fur actually, but I think the hair came out very 2D looking with that black shading.

I dont know its just one of *those* characters. But at least its finally done so I dont have to worry about it anymore.
