Tag: WEEK 6

Sketchbook color exercise Matthew Rivera

For this week I decided to focus on complimentary colors due to the fact that we often see a lot of these in nature, clothing, logos, and illustrations, especially in comic books and other form of print media . With the designs in which i did i also wrote down what they were reminiscent of and what the color scheme looked like and what it can be used for. I love the concept of complementary colors , especially if they are done right and they can bring a design out when it needs to be brought out. For the little tree i did as well as the blue and orange flag i also incorporated some value like hatching and scribbling
