Love, Tumblr, and Weird: Purple Primary
Light Blue Primary
blue where the
why are the sec-
where the tertiary
colors should be?
but almost com-
This model puts its secondary colors in places
where it's tertiary should go, creating a sense of
unbalanced blue/red, and far less gold or yellow
than it should have.
This model accomplishes what the paris model set
out to do- they put black on hips (where other
model's secondary (and sometimes tertiary) color
goes) This gives Houston a larger primary-to-sec-
ondary color ratio.
Worth noting that most skins for London are actu
Same breakdown as London
ally bright blue primary, teal secondary, and orange
accents. It could be argued that orange is stll teri
tary in this model, but thats almost more damning
for paris. Where is their red arm? Why, again, is his
shitty hoody red? because gold doesnt work?
shouldnt it have been blue instead? and then have
the hip pad underneath and arm both be red?
be argued tha ost more damn his
ody red? becauS nstead? aered?
a much more pronounced gold
color from a team without any gold
even in their logo OMEGALUL
Special callout for the dragon skin:
They decided to use their primary
red color in the legs where every
other team puts their tertiary
color... very interesting choice
*where did the two different blues
go from the doomfist model? here
theres only one-
why is gold so bronze compared to
doomfist? Why do they try to make
the skin red/blue split even here but
more blue on doomfist?
Look at that sweet gold shine,
paris... whatchu doin sweetie
P A RIS
Lets talk about Paris……beyond the uninspired color choice. Let’s ignore that paris and DC (and, ugh, fineeee nyxl) have the same-ish colors. There’s some big things wrong here, at least in my opinion:1. On doomfist’s skin, Paris attempts a unique choice that only nyxl, houston, and seoul have done. They try to push the primary color. Look at the Houston doomfist skin vs the London and Glads one. While all technically have three colors, Houston looks overwhelmingly more like it’s primary black color, and then green, and then if you really look, you can see the silver tertiary color. Paris attempts this- but does one weird thing: they introduce a fourth color. Where the inside of his arm should be red, they put a second, darker blue. :/ hmmm2. In contrast to that, on Widow, they seem to give up on the idea of a more dominant blue color and don’t follow the nyxl/houston/seoul model of more primary color and less secondary. Here, they do what all the other teams do and put primary on body, secondary on legs, and accent on armor bits and leggy criss-cross things. Exceeeeept…. they dont have their gold accents non the hips! Why, if they’re not going to do what nyxl/houston/seoul do and push the primary? All it servers to do is make the red/blue size difference even more even! Also- their gold on her is… bronze looking. Much much darker than the gold on doomfist or on the other team. Weird. 3. The logo. Hoo boy that logo. Why do they have that terrible contrast? Why is the largest, brightest piece of it the yellow if they’re going a) use gold and b) hide the gold on their skins anyway? Why push the blue primary on their logo and on some skins but not on other skins? …anyway- I’m gonna assume this is super boring to most people, but if anyone likes design, I’d love to hear what you think!
