This is a basic color tutorial. I'm sure a lot of you guys learned this in school, so it's basically a refresher course. Or it's more of a "put one foot into the door" sort of course. This is definitely no where near an end-all-be-all tutorial. I suggest everyone to look up multiple tutorials and draw from many places to learn. I encourage you to continue to investigate color theory, because we never really stop learning.
I've learned so much since writing this, and I hope you do, too.
Please note that I did not include every color combination ever, this was just mostly a general idea tutorial. Take what you learn and apply it to your own art. I know this is under traditional, but it is used for every type of art.
Thanks to everyone who responded to [link]
! I tried to include a lot of the combinations you guys liked.
linked some great websites for reference:[link]
this is a link for color harmonies in popular logos[link]
and this is a color scheme chooser.
The greatest way to learn color is to practice a lot, so get out there and practice <3~
Please also note that this mostly uses RGB model as opposed to CMYK, which is vastly different. If you're into digital art, look up a CYMK model of colors!
I find that gouache is the best paint to use to learn color theory, so grab some and test it out for yourself.
