Hello! This is a guide on advanced color code making and how to use this on the forums.
So, WQ has a number of colors to choose from but not every color is there (Like Gray
). So I have found out a way to teach you on how to make colors that are custom to you! Lets start
There are a few steps you need to know before you just start making random colors. There is a sequence of numbers and letters that are used in the color code, here is an example.
Lets use GREEN
Green has the code #00FF00
, so, how is this code used? Well, a "0" means that there is no color, so a code of #000000
because there is no color. Now, "F" is as high as you can go with letters, "F" is full color, so the code #FFFFFF
! This is just the easy part, here is how to make colors!!!
How to make and mix colors!
Ok, back to GREEN
. Now these codes seem to just be random numbers and letters but there are "parts" to it. Let me break it down for you... In the code #00FF00, or green, there are 3 parts, and these parts are all different colors! Every color is made up of 3 basic colors, RED
, and BLUE
! Those colors mixed the right way will give you WHITE
. Here is why!
has a code of #FF0000
has a code of #00FF00
has a code of #0000FF
Put the 3 together and you get the code #FFFFFF (or WHITE
I dont know if you see, but the first 2 letters/numbers are all shades of red, and the middle 2 are all shades of green, and the last 2 are all shades of blue!!! So you can make lots of different colors by using letters and numbers.
Advanced Color Mixing!
NOTE: Basic color mixing is needed for you to understand what I am about to say
You may need to refer to the above color codes (red, green, blue) so you understand what this is.
Now, there way more than just RED
, and BLUE.
. In fact, there are so many I cant even list them! And for everyone there is a color code.
Ok, when you mix green and blue, you get YELLOW
! So, the code for yellow is #FFFF00
, because you mixed the same amount of green and blue. Now, if you want PINK
, you just mix red and blue. This sounds strange because you would normally mix white and red but not here, so the code for pink is #FF00FF
. You can do this for just about any color! Same for LIGHT BLUE
, just mix green and blue^^.
Mixing with numbers AND letters.
NOTE: You need Advanced Color Mixing skills to do this.
Now, to test you even further, we now can enter the world of numbers. Numbers are different than letters. Each number is a different shade of the same color. So, here is an example.
With BLUE and DARK BLUE
you can go down a scale to make cool color effects! Here s my siggie for you to see!
Ok, see how the color goes down a scale, all of these colors are not on WQ... Here it is in code so you can see the different color codes!
Code: Select all
Remember, it want down from 8 to 5. All the same color but a different shade...
OK! You have finished the Advanced Color Mixing guide! I hope you make some great color codes and share them with the WQ comminuty ^^
