Flashy by Ayior Flashy by Ayior
This is for JimPAVLICAs Contest of their Gem OC!
When I saw that it was about colors I thought it would be quite fun to do it in my comic style - and it was!

I used the colors from the ref sheet, also for the background because I wasn't really sure about finding my own color harmonies and they seemed to work quite well as they were set up there~

I didn't add contrast or any real focus points on purpose, because the idea for the contest is to create a poster and I wanted it to be a bit like an abstract piece of wall art. Also, I've had amazing results printing this style on translucent foil and then putting it on a metal sheet to create a sort of holo card feel, it's up on my wall :D
Also the resolution is just for preview - since I did this in Illustrator it's infinitely scalable!

I hope it's okay I toned down the classes a bit to add a more unique color spot to the whole thing :D

I really like the lineless style of this and you definitely managed to give it a semi-abstract look with it!
You took Flash's relatively complex design and minimalized it to suit this style and I think you did a really great job.

I think the decision to make glasses one-coloured was definitely a good call!
All in all this is a really cool looking piece!
Thanks for entering!! :D

Ahh, this is so cool! ^__^ From the beginning, I loved the pose you made for Flash here (when I looked at the entries for Jim's contest)-- & then on top of it all, reading your comment to go with this piece was just eye-opening!! I hope to try out the printing approach that you described~~:music: It sounds amazing!

You used the colors from Jim's reference in just the right ways, right on into the background you designed for this piece. *Awesome* work, thanks so much for posting what you do!!!
