Hot Highlights, Cold Shadows 

Created by Asarge

A palette with vibrant saturated colors that maintain a grounded and balanced style. With highlights ramping towards hot colors, and the shadows ramping towards cold you will have an immersive contrast that is pleasing to the eye.

  • Hot Highlights, Cold Shadows Palette Example by Asarge

    Palette examples. Note how the less saturated brown examples used for trees/sand can help boost colors around it. You can have similar desaturated cold lifeless metals, wood, etc to apply this affect in other cases. For best use avoid mixing the brown ramps as this is intended to be used for specific cases where you need more contrast. - by Asarge

what color palette? 

Submitted by Gors

Colors extracted from TORDDKM.tumblr.com's "what color palette do you associate me with???" meme. This meme includes 24 palettes with 5 colors each (except the last one, which has 6). In order: Anxiety, Sodas & Skateboards, Guidance, Constant Rambling, The Sweetest Chill, Saltwater Tears, Damned If I Do, Without a Heart, High Fashion, I'm Not Alone (Yet), Castle In The Sky, Pumpkaboo, Cherry Soda, I (Kinda Like You Back), Omniferous, Blooming, This Is My Swamp, What I Gain I Lose, Cyberbullies, Cool Sunsets, Subtle Melancholy, Conversation Hearts, Tuesdays and Sylveon. As such, I did not create any of these palettes, but I feel like the original creator TORDDKM would love to see these palettes being used not only as a "tag yourself" style meme, but for artistic purposes as well, especially when the owner's tumblr cannot be accessed anymore.
