🎨 A painting/Fediverse experimentation:

With percentages of Red, Green and Blue, you can obtain a precise RGB color definition.

So, please vote for one or more color channel and with the mix of all the votes, I'll challenge myself to paint a fantasy landscape, using the result as the dominant color.

(PS: I'm doing full time inking/penciling on episode 37 and a bit of colored art cool-down would be great! Also I need a bit of 'Fedifun' this week. Thanks for your votes and boosts! )


Votes for the poll are closed now. What a... hum hum... "lovely?" color. 😆

Thank you for all the participations! Now I'll try to paint a fantasy landscape with this one as my dominant color. I'll toot it here soon.

( If other artists around want to give this challenge a try , we can tag our toots with the hex address: to collect and discover them )

@davidrevoy huh interesting when i put in these percentages in clip studio i got a much much darker color (242D2E). Maybe i have a setting that includes the value as well.

@foervraengd Are you sure Clip Paint Studio color sliders are in percent? That darker sounds like 0 to 255 (8Bit) value. I'll quickly check with Krita, it has both.

@davidrevoy yeah if its set to 0 it is filly dark. It doesnt say percentage but i cant really find another way to type in the values. The cmyk sliders are in percentage tho.

@foervraengd On 0-255 system, the color setup is:
Red: 91
Green: 114
Blue: 117

@davidrevoy Well i like the color. It has potential to be something great :3

@davidrevoy we should filter by instance or other demographics.. see if there's significant difference 😝

I like the drawing. "Afraid of The Mist" a sequel by Stephen King.

@davidrevoy Seems like a good color came out of it, gonna try the challenge if I can find the time!

@davidrevoy just off the top of my head that's pretty close to the accent color in Abominable Charles Christopher

Actually, it's not that bad, but I suppose we should be unsurprised that it is so muted.

@senfcall I'm done with it and I'll post in a minute: you are close!

@davidrevoy "Landscape"? 🤔 Hum. Looks more like "thunderstorm" to me. 😉
Poor Pepper and Carrot are frightend by the color. 🌈

@chbmeyer Hehe, I'll post result in a minute: I couldn't resist to add character, you are close!

Mince j'ai pas vu passer se sondage.
J'aurais donné 1 point de plus au bleu 😁

@davidrevoy the question is also how to interpret the values. Pure intensity? sRGB? Adobe RGB? Some proprietary stuff? Which display device?

@sirjofri It will be on sRGB-elle-V2-srgbtrc.icc displayed on both monitors ( a Philips 275E, and a XPPen 24 artist Pro) calibrated to 160cd/m2, native white point with argyllcms command lines and a colormunki smile x-rite for the detail of the calibrator.

@davidrevoy I like it, it's like forest lichen on tree bark!

@davidrevoy We’ve got a color of the year! “Fediverse Doom Grey”.

We’re a cheerful lot, we are.

@kgerloff I really like the name! “Fediverse Doom Grey" it is! 😆

@davidrevoy That's quite a lovely color community chose xD Interesting to see results by then xD

@davidrevoy Excuse my ignorance… But 46+45+36 doen’t equal 100. Have you scaled the results to get a certian brightness in the same ratio as the poll??

@daniel Hey, the votes of the poll allowed multiple choices (eg. Red+Blue); that's why it exceeds 100% I guess.

@davidrevoy@framapiaf.org honestly that color gices dark rocky forest feeling, and/swamp. at least from my PoV

@kura I agree, I'll post my improvisation on this color in a minute 😉

@davidrevoy Feels like a quiet lake at not-quite-night to me. Really like it.

@achso I just finished my improvisation, you'll see that quiet/calm wasn't really my feeling 😅

@davidrevoy Can I get a link to your background? LOVE IT!!

@davidrevoy no, the background on your computer in that toot with your main characters

@djotaku Ha, I understand; it's not my wallpaper, just a montage I made, but I still had the file. So, I made this: peppercarrot.com/extras/temp/2

@davidrevoy I thought it would become a grey. Though, I'm happy that it isn't as an uninteresting colour as I feared it could become. At least it has some... lovelyness 😉


Hahaha, love their look of horror at the colour! 😱 😁

I'm curious what a weighted voting (vote pondéré) would have given on a wheel like this 🤔

@davidrevoy Such a cool idea to crowdsource a color. I'd love to see you continue this method in the future!

@davidrevoy not the first time I've seen a poll like this.
turns out grey is pretty common, unless you adjust shit somehow.

@dhfir Yes, I don't know what I had in mind; but quickly after posting I get a lot of feedback who predicted that. I'm learning! 😅
