Hrmph, I forget to say that the colours have to match each other. Green is a colour that is associated with nature, therefore the colour could suit him…purple is a psycho colour that is associated with fantasy and fantasy worlds.
Colours that appear in nature would be the best choice, so the character blend with the different enviroments. So maybe:
…hmmm…but what colour??? O.o
With that white background, I don’t see much color at all.
Anyway, I think the colors should be playful, just like the character. Red or don’t necessarily have to be bad or evil. Think about what it could look like if you made him black and red with yellow. Could actually look nice if you’re doing it the right way. Just don’t overdo the color saturation and make it more brownish than reddish.
Also, reading colour theory and taking it word for word will get you nowhere.
Red is evil eh? it’s also ‘Warm / hot’ aswell as many otherthings. Orange is energetic blah blah blah? Brown is poo colour, so it’s smelly? lol
If you want to increase the appeal of friendliness, use some brighter colours… You should not limit you pallet because a colour theory articles define red as evil :lol. Colour is only part of the image…
I’l see how red looks, but it’s a very agressive colour. For example bulls get very angry when they see it…you could say it’s very emotional…animals use it to scare other animals. Poisoned frogs for example scare other animals with the colour, birds use their colours to mate…aka…yeah you know.
Plus our inner bodies are very red, therefore it’s a very strong colour…but I’l post a screen on how it would look…
Ok here is the result, what a cute little dino
I’m not sure if you’re really interested in making your dino look good, but this might not be the best way to do that. When I think of a funny dino with black/red/yellow, I think of cute patterns of vibrant colors (but not too vibrant) that define his body, and definitely not one color (nor texture) for everything. Use your painting skills, use the new projection painting to experiment
Also, when I said: I don’t see anything with a white background, you could have read “white” as “black” as well :ba:
