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 PAINTERwill.
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.
i’m doing a quick giveaway for a shiny pokemon with flawless ivs of your choice. it will be obtained by legitimate means, as in i will start a new breeding project to get flawless eggs of this pokemon, then i will have it hatched by someone with a corresponding shiny value so that it will be shiny.
this giveaway will end at the end of today aka monday, november 25 at 11:59 pm. it’s just a small giveaway so i’m letting it end fast. i may do more in the future but no guarantees.
terms and conditions:
do not redistribute. i do not like my bred pokemon being used for other trades and neither do most people who do wi-fi trading. if you’re entering this, then you are planning to keep the pokemon you pick and nothing else
you must have a copy of pokemon x or y and must have wi-fi access to actually trade with me???
the winner has 24 hours to respond with what pokemon they want. if it’s a pokemon that has different viable sets then you need to be clear on which one so i know which ivs/nature to breed for. for example, physical or special horsea (kingdra) means i will have to breed for either adamant or modest and with different ivs
i would also prefer if the pokemon you chose had an easy 50/50 gender ratio but that’s up to you
considering i can only start breeding after the giveaway is over, i cannot guarantee that i will have this done very quickly. it’ll probably take me a week or so depending how school is
