ArtRage Colors: Prismacolor Premier



**UPDATED** Five colors have been added to the file: Olive Green, Pale Vermillion, Sepia, Slate Grey, and Blue Lake. So if you have my old file, go ahead and replace it with this one.


Would you like to use Prismacolor colored pencils in ArtRage? Of course you would! Download the .zip file from the "Download" button, unzip it, then copy the .col file into your ArtRage Paintings > Custom Content > Samples folder. Voila!

To make this file, I used each pencil to color in a little box on printer paper, which was scanned at 600 dpi. I white-balanced the image, then averaged the color in each box according to HSL. These colors were created from the resulting hex codes. It's not perfect, but it's pretty darn close. The colors interact a lot like my real-life Prismas.

So far only 73 colors are available. Because I don't have the funds to buy them all. This palette is reasonably balanced - if there are colors you think I should have, feel free to make suggestions in the comments. I could probably use them IRL anyway. If there's a color you really, really want, please consider giving me 140 dA points, 'cause that's roughly the price of a Prisma ($1.79 at my local Blick Art Supplies). If you "buy" it, I will definitely add it.

But nevermind that: share and enjoy!

(Trivia: Several of the pencils used to create this file are over 15 years old. My original set of 24 languished in a drawer for more than a decade, and while I have been using them heavily in the past year or so, there are some colors that I just don't need much.)
