DAY: 7; Monday


Today I learned how to look up different colors in illustrator as well a what letters are used the most when naming color swatches, after I learned how to delete color swatches that I’m not using in the project.

Before Swatch Deletion:

One unused color swatch remained undeleted because it matched a color that was used prior to lesson 3 of Chapter 12, so as the video told me I changed the CMYK values of the color swatch from C=90 M=30 Y=95 K=30 to C=80 M=40 Y=85 K=20 and changed the name to Card Table.

Independent Practice:

Selecting colors from images & creating swatches from those selected colors.

For this section of independent practice I used a image showing the cast of characters from both DanganRonpa: Trigger  Happy Havoc & Super DanganRonpa 2: Goodbye Despair.



First I selected the color picker tool, next I chose the pink color from one of the more flat masked splatters of blood near the bottom of the screen, in this case the one in the bottom left corner of the image.

Than I went over to the swatches panel & clicked the New Swatches button from the bottom list of icons.

Once the new swatch was created I than double clicked on it and changed the name From the Default name from the CMYK values t to the name DanganRonpa (Blood) witch suits the image vary well.

I  the reasoning I  used this image is 1: Because I’m a fan of both the game & Anime adaption series, & 2. It has a very unique Extremely bright pink used for the porpoise of masking any reference to blood in the Despair filled world that is Danganronpa.

For the next color swatch I chose the I went with the Purple color of the jacket of the Ultimate High School Level Detective KiriGiri, same as last time I fallowed all the same steps but for the name of the color I chose to call it Kirigiri Purple.

KiriGiri (Kyoko Kirigiri)
