our achievements through our stories


Artists can tell a story with colors - with each hue reflects the emotion or the underlying tones behind every art work. Our creatives at Definite Studios make sure that the colors that they choose conveys the right meaning. Learn more on tips and tricks on how you can also pick the best color palette for your art.

Art is one of the ways people share their inner world with others.

It allows people to creatively convey their ideas, feelings, and thoughts. It is a form of communication that is just as evocative and expressive as any other language.

And while art, like most other creative pursuits, is subjective, many theories make up the fundamentals of art.

With this article, we will be covering color theory.

Definite Studios is, of course, no stranger to art. One of our biggest focuses is color. Using the right color palette is essential in conveying the right emotions in a scene or communicating key aspects of a character's story.

Our creatives use the right color palette to create the illusion of light and shadow and convey mood and emotion in their creations.

Commonly, color palettes are made up of six colors. These colors should include one dominant color and four accent colors. Our creatives mix different colors to capture the character’s theme, personality, and mood.

Our goal is to create quality art that piques the interest of our users and readers.

In line with this, we asked our designers for some tips in choosing the best color palette to bring your character to life.

Our Video Editor, Rose, says,

"Don't be afraid to play with colors. It may consist of more than three colors or the opposite colors from the color wheel, known as complementary or triadic. As long as they are in balance, experiment with hue, tint, tone, and shade. The color palette could be inspired by your surroundings."

There is nothing wrong with experimenting with colors. You’ll have a broader understanding of the character and a deeper comprehension of your artwork.

Lauren, Intern Manager and Artist, states,

"My tip is that, while there are certain traditional color combinations that look good, don't be afraid to go outside of the box from time to time to challenge your creativity and knowledge in the use of colors."

To obtain a clearer understanding of where their character creation is headed, our artists make sure to look at the big picture and have the flexibility to think creatively.

Aj, our animator shares his thoughts,

"Looking into a movie or show's color scripts helps a lot in deciding the right colors. You can also take inspiration from photographs and create mood boards with them. Looking at other artists' works for inspiration helps as well. Don't be afraid to look into the works of others to assist you."

Always remember that you need to set foot on new ground to find new inspirations for creating fitting color palette combinations. Years of experience and learning from various individuals and institutions will always be your friend.

Our fellow animator, James, adds,

"Trust your studies. Studying and practicing are the keys to finding the right color palette."

Creating art is a dedication to lifelong learning, as art is always evolving.

There is no shame in making mistakes, so experiment as much as you can!
