Those are some color chips I made for a color workshop this week. John Hendrix and Doug Dowd worked with us on color theory. We did a fun project where me made "ugly" colors and "pretty colors" and then used them to color logos. Doug has a great post on color at his blog.
This all got me thinking about animation and how well color is used - I forgot about this Fantasia 2000 animation to Rhapsody in Blue - REALLY amazing use of limited color. Check it out here
I've also gotten nearly obsessed with UPA cartoons from the 50s. They use color really well. Doug has a frame from Gerald McBoing Boing in the post. In addition to great color use, they are hilarious stories. This is a great one.
I'll post some art soon. Everything is very busy lately!
