Find your way around DA #3: Color Theory
Picking the right colors for your work can be a long process. It's about more than just personal preferences. Colors can behave strangely. Some things work better together than others, but sometimes tried and tested combinations suddenly don't work in a piece, or colors that usually don't go together are an unexpectedly great match. What madness is this?!
Rest assured: There is reason behind this madness: Color Theory. It's a term that I think many have heard before, and only few really understand. But it's a very important tool for visual artists. The basics are simple, but it can get pretty complex, and getting the hang of it takes a lot of practice. 
So in this journal I have collected resources that try to explain the concept of Color Theory, and/or give tips on how to pick your palettes. This is not a journal on coloring in general! The two things obviously do overlap, but I will try to focus exclusively on the theoretical aspect of it. 
I hope this list will be use

donmikko's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Digital Art
I paint currently a lot of portrait and anatomy / clothing studies. I paint both traditionally and digitally. I usually don't upload traditionals here because I don't bother scan or photograph. For studies I use reference photos usually found here. If you have a photo that you'd like me to use, let me know and maybe I'll paint it.
