COLORS

Post by Steven » Tue Apr 24, 2007 8:16 pm

Hi. I've been working on a comic called Savior for a while now, and I'm just starting to color some of the pages on Photoshop. I don't always have the greatest eye for colors, and for this comic I want to make the whole thing to have the same 'feeling' with it's colors. I was wondering if you knew of any good books or anything on color schemes that might help me.
Thanks!

Not necessarily a book on color schemes, but a great little website that helps you determine families of colors that work together. You specify the color you want, and it maps out compliments. You can then choose variations etc., and even save them to photoshop palettes. Definitely worth checking out.

That is the COOLEST thing I've seen in a long time. I'm in a similar predicament and this is really going to help me out!

Thanks!

Thanks for the websites! THey pretty much saved my comics from my terrible color choices. I plan on posting some of my colored pages as soon as I finish them. :D
