I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start. 
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture 
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will. 
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue. 
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.

The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.


Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:

CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only. 
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!
************************
EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.
EDIT 2// Wow this took off like crazy. I’d like to clarify that CMY(K) is a printing process not Cyan, Magenta and Yellow in painting processes. I totes understand the necessity to use the more vibrant hues of CMY but in context to the original post, I would like to state that I understood that to be in reference to CMYK from design/pantone based inks that don’t necessarily work in a traditional paint format. And I love electric colours just as much as the next person but RYB is not to be entirely discounted because it’s old!
******
Alright, all, i’m going to make this one last edit before I wash my hands off this issue entirely lol:
#1: Here is the original post that this post was in reply to. 
#2: Lastly, just because RYB was invented in the days of yore does not make it any less true. Yes we have created synthetic colours, but they are ALL derivatives of RYB. There is a reason why gouache is not the same as oil paint and WHY designers use gouache instead of oil paint. Additive or subtractive, there is an inherent truth to RYB and I know that the original poster of the original infographic believes so too.
After all we are all for equal love of all colours because colours are one of the most beautiful things ever. The End.

THANK YOU YES FINALLY

thank youuuu

Talking with my buddy Neil were talking today on how condescending that original post was. I’m baffled at the people buying into that bully of a post the original was, you can color with whatever color you want, and metrikfire makes an excellent argument right there on media and what CMYK is. If you need a argument why is the original post wrong. Do what you want because you want to and for yourself.
Show this to whoever you care that reblogged the other post, not to be mean please, but to give a more accurate honest information.

Because apparently this is still a really difficult concept for people to grasp.

Like i literally can not believe the amount of people that do not understand that libido and sexual attraction are totally different. One has to do with your body by itself, the other has to do with it’s reaction to other people.

Polygon: Star Trek director J.J. Abrams 'emotionally hurt' by Star Trek: The Video Game

J.J.:

"To me the video game could have been something that actually really benefited the series and was an exciting, fun game with great gameplay and instead it was not and was something that I think, for me emotionally it hurt, ‘cos we were working our asses off making the movie and then this game came out and it got, this isn’t even my opinion, it got universally panned and I think that it was something without question that didn’t help the movie and arguably hurt it.

Good to know we finally identified where Into Darkness went wrong.

Yes.

It was the video game.

That’s the reason the movie went so horribly wrong.

It was all the video game.

oh yeah it’s the game fault…you know the game that was made A YEAR BEFORE MOVIE WAS EVEN FILMED? yeah totally the game’s fault

Yesssss blame the game for your fail, J.J. Go ahead, it’s ok… except not.

yep, it was the game’s fault JJ

It’s essay writing season for tons of students!

After being a college writing tutor for over a year, I thought I would share my advice with all you awesome people on tumblr. This is how I write essays, but if you’ve got more tips, feel free to add them below. 

Happy writing. You can do it!

A tip I learned in college writing class twenty years ago: the 3-Legged Stool.

Your introductory paragraph should consist of four sentences:

  1. Your conclusion, stated in general terms (the “seat” of your stool)
  2. Your first supporting point, stated in general terms (Leg #1 of your stool)
  3. Your second supporting point, stated in general terms (Leg #2 of your stool)
  4. Your third supporting point, stated in general terms (Leg #3 of your stool)

You’ve now constructed a stool that can stand by itself—an argument with three supporting statements.

Next, your first paragraph will be built as follows:

  1. Your first supporting point, re-phrased and a little more detailed (Leg #1 of your stool),
  2. followed by specific explanations that expand on your supporting point  
  3. This can include additional paragraphs as needed

Your second paragraph will be built as follows:

  1. Your second supporting point, re-phrased and a little more detailed (Leg #2 of your stool),
  2. followed by specific explanations that expand on your supporting point
  3. This can include additional paragraphs as needed

And your third paragraph will follow the same format:

  1. Your third supporting point, re-phrased and a little more detailed (Leg #3 of your stool),
  2. followed by specific explanations that expand on your supporting point
  3. This can include additional paragraphs as needed

Then you write your conclusion, reviewing (and re-phrasing) your conclusion and your three major points.

This approach to a paper can feel a little awkward at first, but as you practice it becomes seamless.

Good luck!

I just want to know how many glasseser on tumblr :)

Just for seeing afar

Just for reading~

so i can see the world because I am blind.

I’m pretty nearsighted - everything more than about a foot in front of my face is blurry as hell.
It took me years to convince myself that I needed glasses, but I don’t regret my decision.
