Exercise 41 Results: Color Shifting by CGCookie Exercise 41 Results: Color Shifting by CGCookie

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)

This exercise is best completed after watching the “Color Shifting Using HSB” tutorial included in the “Color Course“.

For this exercise, I wanted to create a step by step along with shots of the color picker so you can understand how these colors were chosen.  So when I choose my colors for “shifting” I generally follow the same pattern as shown in the full post.

  • I will “bend” my shadow colors toward cool colors, increase the saturation, and lower the brightness.
  • I will “bend” my light colors toward warm colors, decrease the saturation, and raise the brightness.

This is a quick way to choose colors without relying on black and white to create forms. It’s a good tip but one that you don’t have to use all the time. Instead, experiment with this to create new color palettes and combinations to create your own swatch palette from!

You can download the step by step chart .PSD below including the layers used for each object!

The dice looks pretty awkward to me. It's bland and I couldn't grasp the material it is made of. And of course the numbers are wrong on the die as the previous person said.

Other ones are great though!

I should have made it more known that I was using a giant foam dice as a reference instead of the standard dice. I think in the future I will do more of a standard dice as an example to showcase the value shading with the dots pushed in!

On a standard die, one and six are on opposite sides so you can't see both numbers at the same time (opposite sides always add to seven, so one and six, two and five, and three and four are on opposite sides from each other.)

Other than that it is a great example.

Surprised you didn't make the dots on the Die there concave, or the edges a sharper sheen, like the usual ceramic/plastic dice you see

Thanks! I love how you waited a few days before showing the "answer". I'm glad I did the exercise and struggled a bit before I saw this. You guys always make everything look so easy!
