When in doubt, I use google and find hex codes to plonk in. I'm colorblind though, so I can't say I recommend that unless you want to start over-relying on a crutch you don't necessarily need!

Hm, thanks for the tip. I don't have the feeling that I need to do this at the moment. I mostly can point out wrong colours.


*sigh*
I have so little time and since I have evening shifts like every day, I'm feeling a little impatient. This isn't nearly done.
What I wonder about are the colour ramps. In the original screenshot, some colours get less saturated when they get darker. I know that's not irregular, but it makes it hard for me to find ramps that share colours.
Additional, I can't make the armor look geometric as it is supposed to.

It helped a little.
Now I'm running out of ideas. I'm glad I don't get paid for this.  ::)

EDIT: Messed around with the headgear a litte to give it a shape.

Looks like a good start. Try color shifting your colors a little bit. A good rule of thumb is to never shade your colors with just a darker color of the original. (For example: if you have green, don't shade it with a dark green. shade it with a darker teal. shade grey with purple. yellow with pink. etc etc etc.)

Hey Teeth!
Thank you for your advise. Of course I know that rule. I never worked at something where I had to use it obviously. (And sometimes I'm not brave enough.)
I don't think I can shade the WOW-character like this, as the colours of the original work way different.
I will give it a try tomorrow.

As I'm not going to finish the avatar, I'm up for your ideas what I should do next. It's okay to ask, is it? I'm happy with every guidance.

That's my third post in a row. I'm sorry.

Today I started to work on a grasshopper character.


I'm not sure how anthropomorphic I want to look it like.
This is something that comes close to my imagination: http://pre01.deviantart.net/ab3a/th/pre/i/2010/178/f/5/grasshopper_guy_by_darkkitsunegirl.jpg

Dude , even tho i'm trying to create monsters, that grasshopper-man creeps me out more than it should. Creepy, great idea.
