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:

I love #11. It's colours aren't as saturated as the others. I'd maybe darken the gray a bit though. 

#20 and #21 make me sick. Blue and orange being used together should be a crime x3

blue and orange can work together really well due to being complimentary colours, but as with any colours like the ones in these examples, too much saturation often makes it look terrible. for example, look at the Pokemon Mudkip, and you can see that the use of blue and orange is perfect.  I really like 9 honestly, it's not too over saturated, and red can work as a decent accent to blue.
