Choosing Good Color Schemes by fantasy-alive Choosing Good Color Schemes by fantasy-alive
This is my first tutorial. I know sometimes when I’m doing a web design or journal skin the coding is the easy part. The hardest part is getting past that first step of figuring out exactly what you want to do. One of the main things that inspires me and helps me over the hump is color schemes.

I plan on doing a series of tutorials about how to be inspired to do a design. Please let me know if this is helpful. Your comments are always welcome.

Very interesting! your right, I tried using 6 colors in the design of my website but it was too colorful, 4 to 5 colors are the best choice.

keep it up :)

i like the suggestion of picking off-black and/or off-white instead of just plain black and white!

I've always had trouble with what colours to use in my designs, I always use too much of one colour >.< Thanks for the tutorial :D

This is very interesting and useful. Do you think that the same principle can be used in a ilustration? I usually have problems choosing colors, specially in backgrounds. I tend to use only tones from same colors :(
And yes, more tutorials about this would be wonderful :heart:

I think it could apply to illustrations too. Usually when I'm doing illustration work, color schemes come in handy.
