Ida Color Scheme WIP by djeffers Ida Color Scheme WIP by djeffers
Started working on a colored version of those sketches of Ida and Gerda.

Here's a little preview of Ida with BLACK HAIR?! 

I'm also trying out all types of reds for her outfit, but the colors you see above are most likely not official.

So, what do ya'll think? Do you like the red? Do you like Ida with Black hair?

I love the pink purple and red colours on the top and front of the outfit! I'm not a huge fan of the lighter mauvy colour for the sleeve and dress though. Her dark hair looks fantastic on her, I reckon. :) You could also maybe try a very dark brown, but I like it dark.

I'm still not done with the dress colors, so they do look a bit off. this is what I got done with in an hour and I just decided to post a preview.

I might try dark brown as well, but black hair was up first. 

Also, what do you think of the name Vivendale for the Kingdom's name? It's based off a Norwegian flower called a Vivendel that will be the on the flags of the Kingdom.

I'm glad you do.

Here's the picture I'm using as inspiration for the flower that will be on the flags...

It's so odd, but i really like the wavy shapes the flower makes and I think it could look really pretty and unique.

Maybe make it a bit more brown and I think it would look fantastic.

I think I will try brown, but black was up first.

I'm still not done experimenting with colors, but I stopped for the night and decided to post the results I got in around an hour.

I don't even think all those red colors go well together, but that might just be me.

Well I guess you could add a little touch of blue to it since she is suppose to be a snow queen after all. Not too much, though.

I actually colored the sash blue to make it pop first, but then I colored over it to test other colors. you might be able to see the original sash color in the list of layers to the right next to the name layer named "sash." It's a very bright blue.

I thought maybe that could be the touch of blue.

Oh I see it, so will there still be blue?

I belive so. 

My first thought was blue, so I might just stick with it. Looking back I do think it looks interesting against all that red.

The sash is going to be one of the two Kingdom's color, so I might just use blue as one of those colors. They're going to have a flag with the crest of a popular Norwegian flower called a Vivendel.

Because of the flower begin the crest, I've decided to name the Kingdom Vivendale. 

what do you think of that?

Actually, Gerda was the one who was originally meant to wear the pink, but since Ida is wearing red I thought it would look too similar.

Ida's clothes will consists of red, purples, blues, and pinks. When she's younger the clothes are a little lighter, but as she gets older her style changes and her clothes become darker. 

Gerda is probably going to have the same transformation, but just not as drastic and more subtle.

Yeah, the change of color represents Ida life changing around her and the pressure that she gets from being future Queen of the kingdom.

Also, what do you think of the name Vivendale for the Kingdom? It's based off a Norwegian flower called Vivendel that will be on the flags of the Kingdom.

I think the red looks great on Ida! I have to say, interesting choice of colors. :D

thanks. 

I decided that since Ida has icy powers that I could give her an outfit that suits her personality, yet also make it very different from what a snow queen might be expected to wear.

At first, I jumped on having her wear blue, but then I thought that seemed like the go to color or for a snow queen, so I went with red to make her powers look really out of place when they're used.

I'm glad you do.

What colors do you think Gerda could wear? I want Gerda and Ida to wear very different styles and colors, yet they wouldn't look odd standing next to each other.

Um... maybe light pastel colors like a light blue or green?

djeffers Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That's not a bad idea. 

I might have to try that. 

I think I want to go back to an old idea I had for Gerda's color scheme and make it more green, teal, and turquoise.
