“…it can be frustrating at times. I’ve noticed that it’s most difficult to distinguish between colours of the same value and fairly low saturation but of different hues - A few times I’ve accidentally gotten some green patches into portraits that I couldn’t see, but were obvious to others.
It used to worry me, but you just have to persevere - as people have said, we have a pronounced sense for value, so play to that strength, and work lots on your drawing skills.
Don’t shy away from colour though, just pay much more attention to what you’re doing with the paint (try to keep an organized pallete) and what you’re observing.
It makes sense to me that if we record what we see with our skewed sense of colour, and our recordings are skewed in the same way, to a person with normal vision it should appear correct.
That depends on our skill to translate from observation though - I find the observation to be the difficult part honestly, but I’ve gotten better by really paying attention and forcing myself to work it out instead of saying “wah I’m colourblind”
I wish you the best of luck dear colour-blind friends !”
Followers can you help out, got any resources or tips?
I’m not working with animation so I really have no idea what advice to give you. I’d rather say nothing and leave it to more knowledgeable ones to jump in :)
