Damn. Quite a jump in quality from your previous image.

I'd just like to add a little piece of trivia:

Using HSV sliders skips some RGB values.

Try it, you'll see.

It's pretty clear why when you think about it.

H range: 360
S range: 100
V range: 100

360 * 100 * 100 = 3,600,000

R range: 256
G range: 256
B range: 256

256 * 256 * 256 = 16,777,216

A difference of over thirteen million combinations!

And to quote this Wikipedia article:

In computer graphics, it is typical to represent each channel as an integer from 0 to 255 instead of a real number from 0 to 1. It is worth noting that when encoded in this way, every possible HSV color has an RGB equivalent. However, the inverse is not true. Certain RGB colors have no integer HSV representation. In fact, only 1/256th of the RGB colors are 'available' in HSV, effectively eliminating a single channel of control from the graphics artist.

By all means, use HSB to set up your colors. It's a lot easier and effective. Once you've got them set up the way you want with HSB, tweak the RBG settings to get the maximum range of color choices.

Pro Motion's symmetry tool can beast out something like that in literally half the time it takes with Photoshop. All I could think of while watching the video was how much quicker it could be done using the right tool.


Yeah, I'm a dick, but I'll prove it.

*fires up Pro Motion*

I'd give my left nut to see all of Gustav's pixel works again. His FFT style characters really blew my away. Sorry I can't help, I used to have a lot of his stuff but I have a fetish of cleaning my hard drive every 3 to 6 months. :'(
