CHARACTER WIP (help please!) by EyeKissa CHARACTER WIP (help please!) by EyeKissa
I NEED HELP GUYS WITH COLOR SCHEMING FOR HER HAIR ;A; Please read below for what I need exactly<3 thank you!

So I commissioned my amazing friend(~my-name-is-anonymous) to make me a character collab. So basically she sketched me up a species/design and I get to color it and make the character min UvU I really love this design and I want to give her the best use of colors. so I need some help from you guys because I am struggling.

I really like the whole fur pattern I have basically but I hate the colors I am trying out for the hair/tentacles. I would really like some advice on what would look well with her fur pattern because I am keeping that permanent. So what color or color combos would go well with her fur you think? Any comments are appreciated!

Once again thank you babies for the amazing commission. I am commissioning you again!

Green/brown or blue/brown is a pretty good color combo in my opinion. o v o )b

I like the rainbow idea, but I also think if you used blue, green and yellow.... Idk, it just looks good in my head.

Honestly, dude, I really like the colors you have for her hair right now.
But I kind of have a thing for natural colored characters with crazy colorful hair.

keep it simple.
you can do a dark dark brown/black colour at the roots and then fade it to a beige.

when i was making my character dino, i wanted her to have blue hair.
but ive learned that even normal coloured hair looks really pretty.

so dont try to over do her design. just go with the brown look.
plus, she wont kill your eyes if you ever do a page doodle of her LOL

Mint green and baby blue always seemed to look best to me with those shades of brown but the tropical colors you have now also look great. (:

In contrast to the pink, yellows, and oranges, try a black with some green highlights in her hair. Either true green or bright green, either will work fine.

I think the yellow/orange/pink scheme contrasts beautifully with the earth tones of her fur. :) It looks funky and fun and with just the right amount of eye-catching brightness without looking overdone. If you do decide to change up the color, I think warm and bright is lovely. Good luck!

if you use prismacolor markers, try true blue, sky blue, lt.cerulean blue, spring green, and deco yellow! fading blues from light to dark as the tentacles outside color, the spring green for the suction cups or inside and deco yellow for suction cup or inside (depending on how it looks). try those! I think they'd look pretty with the shade of browns.

I suggest some green/yellow though the scheme that's already there seems pretty alright so far C:

it's 'aight though, actually one trick that I do for color schemes is on photoshop or any program at random pick 3 colors
really close your eyes and just choose
then lay those colors out in a color wheel equally and start to add all the colors that are inbetween
then in the end you get all the middle colors so lets say you have blue/grey/yellow
then it'd be like
blue/blue grey/grey/grey yellow/yellow/green/blue

I actually like how the tentacles/hair looks :o I mean the color just pops. But since her fur design is a brown, why not try some light blues or bluegreens?

well with bloodsugar and :iconuriko44:'s cancer we did rainbows with a neutral fur color to kind of balance out how bright everything else was
