Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)

Most of us have heard about Colour Theory - be it in school or on dA or as a term thrown about by someone somewhere. But what exactly is it? And how do you use it? This is what this article is striving to explain especially in regards to photomanipulation. The Technical Part Thankfully, there's tons of reading material about colour theory. Starting with the wikipedia article on the subject (which seems rather dry and boring to be honest) and ranging to tutorials written by deviants for their fellow artists. Those are the ones I'd like to recommend to you to get started in colour theory: :thumb14617828: :thumb120798230: Still too dry and t

Winds of Change....

So, here I am, FINALLY having hit Senior Year of college, and I'm working on my professional resume when, low and behold, I mistype my URL on deviantart to DISCOVER.... there's ANOTHER GrimINC on here. What's worse? He's been at this for a lot longer. That being said, looks like I'm going to need to come up with another cool name... because my name just doesn't have that same edge I want to portray. ;) Really sucks, too. I really liked the whole "Grim Inc" play on words. Dammit.... Open to suggestions!

sooooooo...

sooooooo...

I can now officially add "painter" to my list...

It's been a year...

It's been a year...

Okay, so, more than a year... but in that time, I've made a TON of new art, some of which you've only caught glimpses of and some of which I still have yet to complete. However, with the things I'm trying to move forward with, you should be seeing new work from me soon. Just have a little more patience, guys. I hope it'll be worth it to see how I've grown as an artist... all the new mediums I've been working in. Including oil paints, charcoals, india ink... I feel like I'm still not quite where I want to be as an artist, but I've made leaps and bounds from what I once was. Have patience. It wont be long, now. :)
