Thread: Superhero Girl colors

  1. #1

    Superhero Girl colors

    I've spent the past few weeks working on Superhero Girl! She started in Daz, moved to 3D-Coat for sculpting the clothes, hair, and other details. Then to LightWave for posing and rendering, Back to 3DC for some touch ups, then 3D Printed at about 8" tall with the base. I'm now filling in the seems with wood filler and sanding, then she will need to be primed and painted.

    But I need suggestions for the color scheme. I've been some sample renders but I'm open to suggestions. I've heard 3 opinions so far and they're all different. I'm partial to the green and white myself.

    Not green and white, the colors detract from the model and it looks kind of cheerleaderish or bandish.

    I like 'D' probably because of the traditional colour scheme associated with SuperMan/ Girl.
    The cape could be red too.

    But funnily enough I quite like the Green and White look, and maybe add some gold colour to the figure or cape too.

    I donīt think green and white is bad per say either, itīs just the balance and composition ..you simply donīt have a white cape continue to flow in to the upper part of the body, the cape could be white but it then needs a seperation from the chest and down, or make the cape green and then from chest white etc.

    blue and red and yellow, o yeah, that has been my favourite hero when I was at the age of my avatar image, Used to have a red towel and a blue pyjamas, and the "S" which stands for hope appearently. and jumping from the amazing height of a sofa.

    But that is kind of worn out now, Captain marvel and all that, followed same color scheme sort of, but with the more metallic gold look..and what made her looking good was more the actualy aura power around her, when she got heated up..for fight that is
    Wonder woman, red, blue and yellow, or goldish, or bronze style.
    Another aspect is not only the color but what material, leather,rubber or the shiny metal look, the classic clean color and clean cloth version was for the 80īs.





    You could try a purple cape ..purple has always stand for that little Magic, and it would also hint to archangel Michael and his purple cape, to give it some heavenly powers.

    White and gold or black and salamander (hex #F05E23 RGB 240 94 35)

    That's my two cents.

    I'm not sure if I can exactly match a hex code by mixing paints. Haha

    Yeah, that would be difficult.

    One way you might be able to do it would be to set the RGB value in a color picker website and find the Pantone value for it. That would get you most of the way there.

    You could also try putting in the RGB values in this website https://www.easyrgb.com/en/match.php#inputFORM

    It can give you some commercial paint matches and that might also get you closer.

    Hope you find the colors you like!

    Red and black makes me think of that Batman animated show.

    Exactly. Red and black always work .

    If you want another approach... Black and blue/cyan with white accents (think last tron movie)

    That sounds pretty interesting. Maybe with just a hint of blue added to the white.
