Color Theory by alizarinerose Color Theory by alizarinerose
This tutorial was created for a class and is really the culmination/collection of all the information I'm presenting. I went through a lot of tutorials about color and value, and figured I'd learn better if I wrote it all into my own words and created a tutorial.

factoid: You retain 90% of information you receive if you immediately use it to teach others, so let's see if it works ^.^

hi, please take this as constructive criticism as I mean no offense, I feel as if I should help you. I think you should make sure you fully understand color theory before presenting a tutorial for others. A lot of people take these things as fact because someone puts them online, but in fact there is a lot of wrong information on your picture here, especially regarding saturation and high/low key. you have them reversed. A color is most saturated in its purest form, not the other way around. Saturation refers to the amount of pigment of a certain hue present, the more you remove the pigment of that color, or add something else to it, the less saturated the original pigment becomes.  Tints and lighter ends of a specific hue spectrum fall into the (high key) area, and shades?black/darker ends of that hue spectrum fall into the (low key) area.  I think its great that you would like to help others and make tutorials, i really enjoy seeing things like this. good luck in the future :)

Awesome man, thanks for sharing!!

Ps: My father used to say we retain 90% of information if you immediately write down what u learn. So if I learn something and write and teach, I will retain 180% of info?? hahahaha =D

I've never seen that light scale before, but now that I look at it, it makes sense.
