The Gamut Mask - FREE Interactive color harmony tool for painters

It simplifies your color choices and saves you lots of time and paint in achieving unified color palettes quickly and easily. This Gamut Mask Tool was developed by me (Richard Robinson) and is provided to you free to use. The original concept of the Gamut Mask was developed by James Gurney (, artist and author of the fantastically illustrated Dinotopia books ( Below are some samples of harmonic color schemes achieved by using the Gamut Mask.

The Cinematography of "The Incredibles" - Part 1

With so many nice angles that keep making the shots look visually interesting even when they are meant to be very simple, all reminds of the show Mad Men. Almost that retro look, I suppose The Incredibles is meant to be set in the 50s and then once they flash forward to after the marriage and the trial we're in the 60s. It's strong, graphic, bold cinematic storytelling displayed in the visual grammar of this film. Like in the Mad Men, The Incredibles has sleek color combinations and contrasting shapes, well balanced imagery, textures space on the screen is well balanced with flat texture-less areas, particular areas of each shot hold certain amounts of weight and value.

I hope the layout posts have been interesting. When I first went to CalArts, I was so convinced that I was going to be an animator that I paid no attention to learning about layout. Then, when I found my way into the story department, I really struggled to grasp how to (as I saw it back then) "fill out the background behind the characters".

Cyborgraptor: ashbet: *wry laugh* Unless you have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome — my daughter and I both winced/chuckled at that remark about the fingers “not being able to bend back too far.* Hers can almost touch the backs of her hands, because they bend backward to that degree. (With that said, it’s an excellent tutorial on normal-human-being hands, for people who aren’t absurdly hypermobile!)
