Advanced strips

Let's take a closer look at the advanced palette menus. Tap on the clutch, and that will reveal our menus on either side, left side is the brush menu, the right side is the color palette menu. If you press and hold at any given brush, a flyout menu shows you your brush options. Comes in very handy when you have a project that requires a specific set of brushes. It's very much the same with the color palette strip. If you hold on any color palette swatch, a flyout color mixer allows you to change the color of that particular swatch.

Also handy if you have a particular set of colors you need to access frequently. Let's look at the options for choosing colors. Your first presented with the HSB color wheel, hue, saturation and brightness. Tapping on the HSB will toggle you between the RGB, and HSB color space. Let's bring that back. You values are in percentages from 0 to 100%. On the upper right is your mixer plot, showing you your before and after color differences. As we change the color, you can see the split and the different color, before and after.

There's another unique feature for the HSB color wheel. And that can be accessed on the color mixer itself. Let's click on this, opens up our color wheel. This feature randomly changes the color of your brush with each stroke. Go ahead and tap on that. It is not totally random, you can control the variance. Choose a color from the wheel. And you can see this ring on the outside follows your color. If you adjust the hue, you can see how it changes the degree of variance that you'll see with each stroke.

I like using the random feature for creating backgrounds for my industrial design projects. I'll lay a few strokes down. Use the smudge tool to smooth them out, and I'm done. You can choose between different types of color wheels with the icon on the upper left. This will toggle you between the standard color wheel, swatch blocks, and the Copic color choices. Let's click on the Copics. Copic is a brand that manufactures traditional markers, and they've included their full color set in this menu. So, you now have the ability to illustrate, with the best chance of matching the colors you work with, on traditional media.

As you click on a swatch, you can see the name at the very bottom. You can also tap on complement, and see the complement colors. Now, please don't expect the colors to match exactly to your hand-drawn illustrations. You can't hold up your iPad next to a traditional Copic mark illustration, and have it look exactly the same. There simply is no way to calibrate the iPad to the lighting conditions in your environment. And there are other reasons as well. Nor can you expect to print out your digital illustrations, and get exact results.

If you'd like to learn more about color management, and calibrating your monitor for the best results, check out Color Management Fundamentals course with Joe Brady on lynda.com.
