A few months ago the Trending For You section on Twitter showed me this tweet by Elemental.
The article is very cool. Synesthesia is a fascinating condition. But what captured me most was the generator. Obviously.
So what colour is my name? I decided before I even entered my name that I was going to do art based on this palette.
When it first came up my initial reaction was a wee bit of disappointment. I suppose I was kind of (irrationally) hoping it would be a rainbow. But as I kept looking at it I started to like it more and more.
Of course there are duplicates. I have duplicate letters in my name. This is logical. But the green, black, grey, yellow, and blue actually make a pretty palette.
So what to draw? Well, first of all, obviously, a monster.
This particular monster is a shape challenge monster.
I also decided to do something a wee bit more complex, and drew this girl.
Now that I’m getting more confident with digital drawing, I’ve been playing around with the different brushes.
