lElements of Design
By Stephen ChmilarHave you ever looked at a picture you like and wondered why you like it? Have you everwanted to make your art more dramatic and eye catching? Well this tutorial will helpyou!Ok let’s start off:
 Picture 1As you can see, Picture 1 (blank canvas) is really boring to look at. Your eyes are lost andyou don’t know what to look at or what you’re looking at. So let’s introduce our firstElement of Design, its Colour. We all know colour. We see it everywhere. We use it fromour clothes to knowing when to cross a street to knowing when our computer has crashed.Colour plays a huge part of design, not just for animation and web design, but in clothing,architecture design, to pottery and every other conceivable form of art work. Let’s seewhat the blank canvas would look like with a little colour:Picture 2There we go, you now see where the canvas is and now have a place to focus. As youmight be aware, there are thousands of colours. Colour is produced by light bouncing off 
 of objects. Colour in itself could fill up pages and pages and pages of tutorials, but I’llhelp you out and show you the colour wheel:Picture 31 Yellow 5 Blue 9 Red2 Yellow Green 6 Blue Violet 10 Red Orange3 Green 7 Violet (Purple) 11 Orange4 Blue Green 8 Red Violet 12 Yellow OrangeWow, scary isn’t it? The theory is that you can make any colour with only 3 colours, andthese 3 colours are: Red, Blue and Yellow. These colours are called the Primary Colours.See the line between Red and Green? These colours are on opposite sides of the ColourWheel and when mixed together you get brown. Red and Green are Contrasting Colours.Think of how many times these opposites go together…..
Green, Blue Green and Blue, these 3 colours are an example of Complimentary Colours.They go together well and work together.A Monochromatic piece is a piece that only uses a certain colour. There’s an example of this in pictureNow we’re going to move into
Despite having 3 names, Value, Tone and Light practically means the same. We will becalling it Value from here on out.As you may know, the balance between light and dark has been fought over thousands of years. The darkness and the light are on opposite sides of the spectrums.Picture 4Picture 5In picture 4 we see a Black to White value chart. In picture 5 we see a value chart withthe colour Red.
