Purple by Pretty-Angel Purple by Pretty-Angel
Confession: I don't have purple clothes. None. At. All. D:


So I thought I could at least contribute a little doodle for Spirit Day.

It takes a real man to rock the purple. Don't feel bad. Purple ain't exactly a common clothes color. The closest thing I own to purple clothes is a pinkish-purple mixture, nothing just solid undeniable purple. Most guys would probably see it as pink. Did you know guys have a more limited color spectrum than girls? I just learned that. I thought it was really interesting.

I read that a while ago, too. Though with such studies I don't believe this is really an inborn difference (except for actual colour blindness of course) but rather a cultural effect since women are more trained to devote themselves to fashion and artsy stuff and such. I'm pretty sure men who are interested in activities or working in a place where it actually matters don't have problems distinguishing colours as much as the ordinary dude who thinks knowledge about colours is girly and thus not worthy to explore/learn about.

That is a very strong possibility. When my friend told me this I actually wondered how male artists coped with it and whether or not there was any sort of difference. I think I'm going to look through people's galleries at what colors they use and whether there is any correlation with sex.

I love his face. Aww, how do you manage to keep the lines so neat-looking? I'm all messy :( What did you use?

Thank you! :heart:
I usually start out with a messy sketch on a separate layer, then reduce its opacity and draw cleaner outlines on a new layer on top of it. Sometimes I repeat this process a few times till I have what I wanted. I usually also try to work as big as possible (this one was originally the A3 size canvas in PS). It makes it easier to correct lines and zooming in and out as much as you need to. For brushes I mostly use a customized basic round brush in PS like this [link] (settings are in the video comment). It's smooth and easily adjustable for my needs. Hope that helps. :3
