Color palette tutorial time!

This is by no means the Only Way To Pick Colors—it’s just a relatively-simple method I use sometimes.  I’ve found it works pretty well, almost regardless of what colors you pick—as long as you can keep them organized by those light/dark warm/cool categories, and make sure one category takes up a significantly higher proportion of page space, it usually turns out pretty good!

It’s not really a request, but have you ever heard of colourlovers? You can make your own pallets and name your own colours! I made two pallets a long time ago, try drawing with these colours — Summer Tea and Nanospace if you’d like!

Thank you! Especially for the nanospace palette. Continuing the conversation from the Law post, I can see why I gravitate towards more light/warm colors. Working with dark/cool colors felt like an (excellent) exercise to make important details clear as possible.

I also want to thank krisuhr and kaman-ke-el for their advice with choosing and working with a dark palette. I will practice your advice in the coming week!( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Hello to all the One Piece fandom! On August 4th, the One Piece manga by Eiichiro Oda will have been in publication for 17 years! After last years very successful 16th anniversary celebration, we’ve decided to try to outdo ourselves for the 17th and turn the whole week into a party! From August 4th to August 10th, we’re offering a different theme prompt that addresses a different part of the series we love so much. Graphics, fanart, fanfiction, and even analysis and opinions are all welcome! 
Please make use of the tag #opanniversary to help others find your posts dedicated to this 17th anniversary celebration. Of course, we encourage everyone to celebrate in their own way, and graphics, art, and writing not specifically related to our prompts are welcome to use the opanniversary tag as well. 
A special thank you to dressrosas, furanky, and calgaras for organizing all of this! Without further ado, here are the theme prompts, in order from the 4th to the 10th:

Laughter - Whether in Luffy’s first showdown with a Shichibukai, or in the chaos of Enies Lobby, Oda has never hesitated to break up even the most serious moments with a joke. This is a very simple prompt—what in One Piece has made your sides cramp and plundered your ability to breath with laughter? 
Villains &amp; Antagonists - It’s been said that a story is only as good as it’s villain. Whether it’s the enemies you hate or the enemies you love, there are plenty of pirates, Marines, priests, and assassins who have gotten in our heroes’ way over the years. Though it’s helpful to keep in mind that not all antagonists are evil, and that sometimes even the heroes of our story dip into what some might call villainy…
Art - After 17 years, Oda has drawn over 13,000 manga pages and over 130 color spreads, so he’s definitely given us enough to work with. What is your favorite period of Oda’s art, favorite character designs, favorite islands and architecture, favorite double spreads or color spreads and more?  
Tears - The men and women of One Piece have never been afraid to cry when the moment’s right, and it’s a rare thing to find a reader who can make it through One Piece with dry eyes all the way. This is a day dedicated to all the tears that this story has produced, both from the people in it, and from the people who read it. Who would have thought a fun story about a pirate made out of rubber could crush so many hearts? 
Foreshadowing - It’s a well known fact that Oda never forgets. Over the course of over 750 chapters, there have been plenty of mysteries we’ve been introduced to, and some of them we’ve even gotten the answers to. From Rayleigh’s first appearance in chapter 19, 481 chapters before we found out who he was, to the still unsolved mystery of the Will of D., Oda has left us a long trail of things to look forward to in the future. What connections, mysteries, characters, islands, and plot points have you been most interested in and exited about throughout the series? 
Relationships/Interactions - Friendships, rivalries, families, enemies, allies, drinking buddies, master and student, Captain and crew, hero and villain, parent and child, or just two old Marines bickering over rice crackers. What are the relationships and interactions between characters you love most in the series?  With around 800 characters, there are plenty of relationships to choose from. 
Dreams - Could there be a better theme to end our week of festivities with than this? Possibly more than anything else, dreams are the driving force behind this whole adventure. From dreams of pirate royalty and dreams of reunions with whales, all the way to a four year old Oda’s dreams of being a mangaka to avoid having a “real job,” we wouldn’t have the story we love without them. With any luck, this story has inspired a few of us to chase our dreams as well.

Some Laws&#8212;experimenting with my own color palettes. I keep thinking, &#8220;I want to choose dark themes!&#8221; But they all turn out bright instead. I&#8217;d hate to see what happens if I went with the intention of light colors.

miluette requested Joseph Joestar +7 color palette!

I&#8217;m actually a big Jojo fan, but scared spitless to draw them, ha ha. Thankfully Miluette requested him to get out of that fear! I realized when I could crosshatch to my heart&#8217;s content&#8212;maybe drawing Jojos won&#8217;t be too bad&#8230;
(Just a reminder I’m not taking any more requests! Just doing a few of the requests that came after my cut-off. ;&gt;; I’m sorry.)
