Mafia AU - Godfather Erwin Smith.
I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start.
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will.
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue.
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.
The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.
Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:
CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only.
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!
EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.
My colour theory class also teaches us to use ultramarine etc etc in painting gouche.
BL comic magazine gateau revamp: “first issue”
"IMAGES & DESTROY" , "BORDERLESS ULTIMATE".
BL comic magazine gateau has been renewed with a ‘stylish edge’ to it. The ‘first’ volume (Jan. 2014) will be out 30 November 2013. Featuring well-known web illustrators Suou and Matsumoto ikko for the cover art, the magazine line-up includes works (one-shots most probably) from them as well as continuing works from hideyoshico (STAYGOLD), Arii memeko (Hitorijime my hero), etc. You can read Suou and Matsumoto’s skype interviews here (Suou-sensei is living overseas) or take a look at the wonderful posters they illustrated as ‘image effectors’ (also includes Nagarenai tesshu and Nazuka kudan’s art) for gateau.
+ For those who don’t know Japanese, Matsumoto-sensei’s new work is apparently a steampunk-based BL that is action-packed. Suou-sensei’s work is a silent story that is also battle-themed and has military elements. The two main characters are slightly mischievous/rowdy. Apparently the editor also requested for their art to use extremely bright and shocking colours (“I will crush your eyes!!” -like, according to Matsumoto-sensei).
