The Color Tutorial - Part 1 -- Suggester's words: ~sashas explains concepts dealing with color in a really easy to understand and thorough way... and it's organized beautifully. This would be useful to everyone, I think.

The Color Tutorial - Part 1

Part 2 --> [link]

Snap. I think that's the quickest one my tutorials have been turned into a Daily Dev. Thanks very much. Also, thanks to people who have faved/commented/watched and to the groups that requested this dev. Much Love.

I haven't had enough time to finish this tutorial in full so I'm submitting this first part of my coloring tutorial which I had in my scraps+some new parts. To tell the truth, it makes me a little nervous to do tutorials in parts, because I do a lot of reorganizing as I do tutorials to make things seem... logical. But whatevs.

Next sections cover color perception and painting techniques which can be applied traditionally and digitally.

I hope some of you find this helpful.

With Love,

P.S. I'd like to make a note that while I go over typical color relationships like complementary colors, and I go over color wheels, all this should be taken only a short-hand for an easy way to pick a color palette and a way to introduce people to terms artist commonly used to define color. The most important parts are the ones about hue, purity, and value, color mixing, and gamut.

Remember that you're the artist, and you should pick the colors that appeal to you.

I make my tutorials for free, but if you enjoy my tutorials and want to donate some funds for gas, art books and such, I would appreciate it. [link]

I'm sorry, I can read the tutorial, I cant see it /:
the picture is so small, im even using a magnifying glass app to zoom in on the pic and the words are all smudged and blurry. /:
Can you make your tutorial pics. a bit bigger? I was zoomed in 600% w/ that app and it was still blurry.
