Creating a Maneater Vector Girl through Collaboration In this tutorial you'll see a collaboration between two vector artists. Ashley S. Benson will be responsible for the initial composition layout and coloring while Sharon Milne (me) will be refining and adding further detailing to the collaboration.

Ashley and I have been friends for a long time. While mine has been of a limited palette and predominately using stock as a base, Ashley uses her own sketches and wild color schemes. Initial Collaboration Discussion Before any collaboration, it's worth laying some ground rules. Looking upon our strengths, Ashley's strength is being able to sketch a composition from scratch and put it together, where as mine is using stock which is present and adding to it. So with this in mind, Ashley will begin her portion of the collaboration. Ashley Step 1 Step 2 Now we focus on the shape of the body. Step 3

The Science Behind Design Color Theory Color Theory has been a subject of interest for years in the art community. The rules and guidelines hold true when working on digital projects just as much as physical items. There is a lot to learn in the subject of color so I’m going to cover just some of the key points. Terminology is something many designers get caught up on which really shouldn’t scare you or hold you back. The science behind color theory is brilliant yet elegant. Color Terminology Terms are very important when it comes to working as a designer. Hue is one I’m sure most have at least heard of before. Most web developers are familiar with RGB values for hues. Saturation is another buzz word designers have probably heard of but never truly defined. Color sets with less saturation work best as background elements in a website. Their light-blue background is the perfect level of saturation to fit in a background setting. Tone or value is a term most haven’t heard of. Relationships for Color Theory Conclusion

Frederik Jan Bruijel - Inleiding op mijn werk Blending with Pantone or spot colors Today I received an Illustrator related question from a reader that really stumped me. I didn't have an answer straight away, so I had to try certain things out to be able to offer some help. Here is the thing: If you're using the blend tool to create a blend between 2 spot colors, it seems that Illustrator turns the values in between these colors into CMYK values. Is there a way so the blend consists of various hues of the Pantone colors, rather than CMYK values? I guess, if it's possible to change the blend into a simple gradient going from spot color 1 to spot color 2 it solves the issue in a simple way, but what if that isn't possible? Create style effect on both ends Create a style effect on both ends of the blend, using 2 fills on top of each other via the Appearance palette. When I thought of this idea, I was thinking "Aha! And so I tried something else… 2 blends on top of each other Create a blend using spot color 1 going from 100% opacity to 0% opacity.

Simple, Practical Color Theory The mastery of color theory, relations and harmonies is one of the primary steps to uncovering the full beauty and potential of your images (in the realms of art, design and/or photography). Find out more in this simple, practical, colorful guide. Color Models Depending on your background and your purpose, you will view primary colors differently. There are three generally accepted models: RGB (red, green, blue), CMY (cyan, magenta, and yellow), and RYB (red, blue, yellow). Primary color models can be divided into two categories: additive and subtractive. The additive primary colors are obtained by light: red, green and blue (RGB). The subtractive primary colors are obtained by the subtraction of light: cyan, magenta, and yellow (CMY). Color Model Application: RGB: Photography, video/film and design. CMYK: Print design. RYB: Art, painting and design. RGB and RYB Confused? Now that we’ve covered the various color models and their uses, we can proceed with confidence. RGB Color Model Monochromatic

List of colors The following is a list of colors. A number of the color swatches below are taken from domain-specific naming schemes such as X11 or HTML4. RGB values are given for each swatch because such standards are defined in terms of the sRGB color space. It is not possible to accurately convert many of these swatches to CMYK values because of the differing gamuts of the two spaces, but the color management systems built into operating systems and image editing software attempt such conversions as accurately as possible. The HSV (hue, saturation, value) color space values, also known as HSB (hue, saturation, brightness), and the hex triplets (for HTML web colors) are also given in the following table. Colors in alphabetical order A-F[edit] For the continuation of the list of colors, please go to List of colors: G-M#Colors. Colors by shade[edit] White[edit] Gray/Grey[edit] Achromatic grays are colors between black and white with no hue. Pink[edit] Red[edit] Main articles: Red and Variations of red Sources

Printing & Prepress Basics While art and design schools do an impressive job of teaching the importance of form, function, and how to use flashy Photoshop techniques, it's rare that designers have been taught the skills necessary to pass off their projects to printers so that they may not only successfully, but smoothly, produce a designed work. In this article, I'll discuss the basics when it comes to translating your brilliant ideas (and surely hours of your precious time and energy) into successfully printed projects with a printer, making it easier to keep your deadlines and maintain a blissfully happy and healthy relationship with your vendor. Four-Color Process Printing While other printing processes like letterpress or screen printing are great options for producing your work, this article will discuss offset lithography printing specifically, which is the more standard means of producing most any printed work in mass quantities.
