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.
LOL NVM ABOUT THAT OTHER POST
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO+ MUCH
I was gonna say something about that post.

This is better for you than regular lipstick, too, because it turns out a lot of lipsticks have lead in them, which is fatal in large doses. Crayons (especially Crayola) are non-toxic and lead free
I only have one task left to do then I can go and I CAN’T FIND THE FILE IT’S LOST SOMEWHERE ON THE ONLY SERVER WE CAN’T DO A SEARCH ON BECAUSE IT RE-ARCHIVES EVERYTHING IF WE DO DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT!!!!!
I’m never going to be able to take YJ!Batman and GA seriously.
Because those two most definitely have a competition over who can collect the most babies.
Like, by the time Invasion rolls around Bruce has a few legs up on Ollie, but once Ollie gets Roy back and collects Cissie he’s able to call Bruce and sing “I’ve got more girls than yoouuuuu” into the phone.
Bruce rebuts this when he gets Cass, but once Connor and Mia turn up Ollie once again gives Bruce a call: “Well, well, well, I’ve got an illegitimate child in here too!”
Damian turns up and Bruce holds him up in front of Green Arrow’s house: “Your move, Queen!”
So Oliver pulls out his dorky photo-wallet and points to Jade and Lian: “I’ve got a daughter-in-law AND a grandchild! Beat that, Wayne!” (Barry pops up beside him: “I’ve got a grandchild too!”)
Late that night, Dick finds the Batman hunched over his bed telling him to hurry up and get married and have kids.

Gonna kick off this blog with a plug of one of my favorite fanartists, breezy of http://mulattafury.tumblr.com ! Not only does she draw all of the characters as POC (including the trolls!), she also has made some excellent tutorials/tips for drawing ethnic hair, dreadlocks, and dark skin tones. Check out her art, give her a follow, and consider commissioning her if you can!
