    ok lets see what i can do here......ummm

    orange and blue colors go together...
    green and purple go together....
    red and yellow go together.......just keep that in mind...

    try using about 3-4 colors only...or else it will make people heads turn earlier than you want them too....but some people can pull it off....they are just very smart..haha....try getting a color wheel and study how it works and try and memorize color skemes that work together..then it just comes naturally.....i dont know what im talking about anymore....oh yea colors...um....oh and neutral colros go together well....you know...black, white, brown, and grey....thats it..im tired of this thread..p

    do 4 shades of the same color with a black outline. cant go wrong.

    i suggest yellows, cus yellow is cool and not enough people use it.

    then again, nasty ass barf/diarrhia greens are real nice.

    and reddish oranges are just blazing.


    you get the idea.

    black outline, and use the lightest fill color to do an outer shell thingie, then leave it alone. please dont do a bunch of bubbles and cheesy tech graphics as a background.

    I find these personal choice questions pretty strange. Especially when you're a Graffer yourself! Don't any colour combos or schemes look appealing to your eyes?
    If you have the ability to sense a horrible colour choice then you should be able to do the opposite.
    Suggestions are always cool but picking apart your favourite graf pieces, or any other works of art, and finding out why you feel a particular colour, tone, angle, style etc., usually ends in solid development.

    I'm looking forward to your post.

    Color schemes

    I usually stick to lighter colors for the basic fill when working on paper with prismas. Then use darker colors for the designs. Thats why I liked the old metal Design Markers that had the 0 value colors. AD markers can still be had with some ultra light shades. Anyways thats just my personal choice, I ve seen dope pieces pulled off with dark fills too. If you have a color chart you can use the complimentary color of your basic fill to rock your force field and it will help pop the piece out and give you some contras. Take it for what its worth and dont limit yourself.

    outline the black with a hot neon color like turquois or pink. It will make your sketch jump off the paper.

    i was gonna say ask beardo.....


    but hes already chimed in...easy on my bubbles mangs...hahaha...nevermind im not sending you a flick...


    i dig the peach in the prisma set for shell as well as the pink....the shades of blue, as beards was mentioning, would be cool, esp cause in the 24 set, they lack yellows severely, but have like 5 shades of blue....


    the last ones i did had peach/yellow/red/orange, and purple/sky blue/navyblue....love them markers...

    THE BLACKBOOK LESSON

    SUPPLIES: INKING PENS, SHARPIES, DESIGN MARKERS, PRISMACOLOR COLORED PENCILS, AND WHITE HALLMARK GEL-PENS (IF U DONT KNOW, GO GET ONE AT HALLMARK DICKHEAD)

    PRISMACOLOR PENCILS ARE WAXBASED, WHICH MEANS THEY APPLY KINDA LIKE CRAYONS, EXCEPT THE NEATNESS OF A PENCIL. SO U CAN COLOR A PIECE IN DARK, AND DO DESIGNS AND HIGHLIGHTS WITH COLORED PENCILS. THE GEL-PENS ARE SWEET FOR WHITE SHINES IF YOUR NOT DRAWING SOMETHING ENOURMOUS. INK YOUR JOINT, FILL THE BASICS WITH MARKERS, AND GET BUSY WITH SOME PENCILS. (IF U GOT MONEY, BUY EM, IF U GOT SKILLS, RACK EM)

    OR, PAINT MARKERS. IF U FILL A PIECE IN WITH PAINT MARKERS, U CAN DO ANY COLOR, OVER ANY COLOR, OVER AND OVER AGAIN TILL U GET IT RIGHT..THEY DONT COME OUT SUPER CRISPY, BUT CRISPY ENOUGH. A FEW PEOPLE I KNOW DRAW LIKE THAT. ITS MORE LIKE PAINTING.
