Design Tip #1 by Kawiku Design Tip #1 by Kawiku
Just a very quick tutorial I made to help begginer artists to design characters. Actually, this is not really a tutorial at all, just a reference of colors to NOT put directly together if you don't want to hurt people's eyes by making poor color choices. If you have characters with very similar color palettes, you may want to read about the theory of colors to help you at designing characters.

I'm not going to explain the whole theory of colors, since I'm not too good at explaining and there are already plenty of tutorials you can find about it.

So here are two tutorials on colors made by others, containing very useful information that will help you in designing characters and even more:

Some people really love discording colors, though. "eye burning" can convey different emotions that harmonious palettes can't.

Not to sound rude but honestly i think these are just your opinion, we're not gonna make a character just because you don't like it. Some of these are actually pretty nice.
please don't hate me ;;
