Colour palette practice - Requests

Hi everyone. As I'm coming to the end of my other thread for character headcanons (feel free to still suggest on there I'm just saying I'm up to the last request so far/up to date https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/63987/character-interaction-headcanons)

I was thinking of another challenge to developing art ability, I'm trying to learn colour theory next and as a result I feel like I'm restricting myself with my colour palettes I want to try something really challenging and different and hopefully learn from it.

As a result I've decided to try a colour palette request/challenge (you should be familiar with these if you followed artists on tumblr years ago like I did as a teen 😂)

I've chosen 3 palettes below (did not create them but finding the original creator is hard for some due to the sharing nature of these, all credit to the original creators for the palettes though) and want to open up for people to request a dbd character (killer/survivor etc) and an associated palette (please put character and palette letter A,B or C and the associated title/number of the palette you want).

I make no promises on timeframes as I work everyday and actually play dbd occasionally big surprise haha... but I will try my best to complete these and tag the person who requested when I'm done. Please keep in mind I'm still learning digital art and these will not be masterpieces, just putting that disclaimer here 😅

Anyway, hope for a few requests and to learn a few things...Thanks everyone in advance:

Palette A (creator:AsktheStarGazer):

Palette B:

Palette C:

(Edit only for a typo ‘pallet’ hahaha)

    @BlondeMegPls I agree, I can see that palette looking really cool for her. Thank you for the request, I'll add it to my art lineup and tag you when it's done.

    Don't worry, I'll try to pick the hardest things I can think of for you.

    @Unnamed_Freak @PhantomMask20763 @KiraElijah Great, I'll add these in the order they were requested, I'm definitely going to be busy this weekend but there's some interesting palette/character variety, thanks for requesting, as above I'll tag as they're done 😊

    @TheGameZpro3 Thanks, I'm picturing fluro green dwight now, that's going to be fun 😂 I guess it is called a "challenge" thanks for the request. 😊

  • GcarraraGcarrara Member, Mod Posts: 1,917

    Awesome idea! I can see you will improve a lot with all these challenges, good luck! 😊

  • LaraVermillionLaraVermillion Member Posts: 75

    What a nice idea! Fellow artist here, I really share your struggle with breaking free of using the same colours. Maybe it is time I try something like this myself 😊

    I wish for a wraith in palette c #44 :)

    already interested in seeing your results!

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043

    @Gcarrara Thanks I hope I can learn from this, please feel free to request one if you want, it’s open to all.

    @LaraVermillion I found since I’m really new to taking digital art seriously (used to play around with art programs and techniques as a teen) I keep using light and dark shades of one-two similar colours for dark/highlights and want to start using cool colours and warm colours in my shading to give more depth and vibrancy to my art. I love those bright purple or blue or neon artworks I see my favourite artists making so I thought this challenge might be a good stepping stone while I learn colour theory. Definitely feel free to try it yourself, I love art challenges like goretober, art style swap and this. They definitely help with improving style, speed and colours etc.

    I’ll add in your request into the list (thank you for choosing that palette I was looking at it this morning and hoping for someone to request a blue or purple theme). Thanks for the request , I’ll tag you when it’s done.

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043

    Also I would write who they’re for on the picture itself as most do with the palette requests but I tried and my handwriting is so messy/awful I thought it was better without, so, sorry about that...

  • GcarraraGcarrara Member, Mod Posts: 1,917

    Well, i'm not expert so i can't comment or help much in that regard, but do know that i love it! 😀

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043

    @Gcarrara aww, thank you, I appreciate it ❤️☺️

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member Posts: 14,112

    C-2 and Billy please :D

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043

    @GrootDude ahh, nice choice 👍️cotton candy or as I see it: electric bubblegum billy.😂 I’ll add it to the list, lucky most of my weekend is free this time wow. Thank you for the request.

    I'm here for the art, I'm very interested in how it turns out!

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043


    A + Dwight + friendlyfire

    So after doing this I looked up if others have done this palette out of curiosity bc how difficult it was (big surprise it’s not popular I found like 3...😂), turns out most use the red as black/hair and green skin but I didn’t like it this way (initially had the same thought as it’s the darkest colour but it looked terrible on Dwight, the reddish hair made it not look like Dwight at all) so I hope you like/enjoy your Oompa Loompa Dweet. Thanks again for this palette I actually surprisingly had fun with it. 😊

    Oh and I know it looks like I cheated with the “paint” effect at the bottom but funny thing it was an accident when I tried to recolour the red to green it turned into a wierd overlay and I liked it more than the plain red or green alone so... *yeets self out window before anyone can call it cheating* (it technically was made with the palette colours so I’m going to call it a loophole)

    As before added a BG removed version.

  • GcarraraGcarrara Member, Mod Posts: 1,917

    Ohh very nice. This was hard indeed, but you came out on top! Good job! 👍️

  • drimmalordrimmalor Member Posts: 909

    Those are stunning! I love the details on Dwight - that palette looks challenging! Good luck if you do more, I'm really looking forward to seeing them.

    So interesting story with this one, did a little messy sketch of spirit with a mask and “exposed muscles” the other day while trying to think of a pose and liked it so that’s the original version (kinda reminds me of mortal Kombat for some reason???) but I added a redone face version just to cover all bases in case you didn’t like the first version. 😅

    These palettes have been really fun so far, I thought this might feel the same as the first one but it had a completely different feel and was easier I think because it had black, white and a full gradient.

    Sorry this one turned out a little sketchy/messy but I kinda like it like that. I hope you like it and thank you again for the request.💖

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043

    @Gcarrara @drimmalor Thank you both so much, 😍☺️these are actually really fun, many more to do still and I was actually really happy with that slightly reflective look detail on Dwight’s glasses.

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043


    A+ welcome + pig

    This colour palette was so nice, I hope I did it some justice there’s unfortunately a few errors in this I can feel but can’t really see... if you get me? I know there’s something wrong with the legs/coat and head in some aspect but I can’t see how to fix it at this point. I’ve tried flipping the canvas and making small changes and comparing them but I’m just not happy with any changes I make...ah, new artist in training problems, I’m still learning is all I’ve got to remember...😔 I’ve been so unmotivated/down this entire week so far, so, sorry for the wait, I’ll try to get motivated again to finish these. I know if I left every piece until it was absolutely “perfect” then I’d probably never get them finished...😓

    Anyway, thank you for the request 😘 💖 and I’m going to try and look at the things I’m happy with in this rather than just see all the flaws all the time, I’m going to try to post this ending with a positive view.🤗I am sort of happy with the hair and colours on the face/mask/head so let’s go with that.

  • GcarraraGcarrara Member, Mod Posts: 1,917

    Another great job! 👍️

    If it does help you, as a not expert at all i don't see any problem with the legs or the coat! So do not think too much about it! 😁

    And that spirit... Damn!

    B + 10 + ghostface

    Wow this palette actually burned my eyes a bit you wouldn’t think red on red tones would be painful but staring at it for a while...wow. It’s like really aggressive strawberry jam, I just finished this during a long 6h session of dbd tonight so midnight now and the strawberry is too much (was colouring inbetween matches and have had the sketch done for days but just picked it up again to finish it properly today) chose a “you’d make a great picture” pose because why not. Something I’ve never done before and tested perspective and size.

    Anyway hope you like it just...don’t stare too long. 😨

    @Gcarrara Thank you for the continued support 💖, it’s just that sometimes staring at something too long leads to overthinking it and seeing only the flaws. Thank you for letting me know how you see it, makes me feel a little better about it. ☺️

    @TheGameZpro3 I’m so sorry I almost missed your reply, I’m really glad you liked it makes it feel extra worthwhile when the people I made them for really like the outcome, thank you again for the request ❤️

  • PhantomMask20763PhantomMask20763 Member Posts: 5,176

    Wow @Kiskashi this amazing!!! The darl red fits so well imo!!! I love the pose he's doing too it fits really well. Do you mind if I use this as my pfp on Twitter, I love this so freaking much. Thanks for doing it!
