Looking for a color sometimes is the easiest thing. The biggest problem is the variety of choices. I don’t like the alternatives. Do you? This giant definiteness doesn’t.
How do you choose colors? Do you fancy playing with non-complementary palette? What about the famine characters? I’d like to avoid stereotypes, but sometimes the stereotype helps create exclusive character.
And sometimes not. What are you doing when you are in between? How do you deal with male characters?
Is it easier with female ones? I wouldn’t say so…
I’m just happy that each of the variants deserves to live and has its unique inner world.
