Chiba City Museum of Art-inspired palette.
A set of colors meant to represent lethargy - the languid dark yellow and off-green sets the mood, with a pair of grays and light blue for controlled points of interest.
Tears on the sand, can it erase the pain in my heart just like it dries away?
Four colors carefully chosen to invoke a nighttime, moody and geometric pieces.
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.
This palette was sampled and edited from an advertisement for Yamazaki Baking Company, a Japanese company that was founded in 9 March, 1948. In post-World War II Japan, food supplies were dangerously low and the American food aid was Western-centric, supplying them with culturally alien foodstuffs like bread. A holdover from this period is the modern term for sliced white bread, 食パン 'shokupan', meaning "bread for eating" - back then, Japanese people would use it as pencil erasers. In the following years, bread started to be incorporated in the Japanese diet, with the local bakeries opening their businesses; the creation of 'anpan', a sweet roll filled with azuki bean paste, was created to cater to the local preferences, and now several bread and pastry products exist in Japan. It is also worthy to note that during the post-war era, efforts were made to create food that was easy to make and culturally appropriate to Asian palates. This saw the creation of ramen stands, or 'shina-soba' as it was known - noodles in pork broth - that also became an iconic element of the Japanese cuisine. This palette brings memories of this era, with six warm colors that resemble printing from Japanese Showa era - the creamy white matches well with the duotone blue-black and red-pink combo, bringing a sense of nostalgia and warmth, while also being slightly melancholic, bringing about memories of a war-torn country trying to rebuild itself from the rubble. While we all know the effects of the WWII, small cultural elements like those can give us further insight on how world-changing this event was.
Ciboulette (French chives) are known in culinary for its fresh, mild onion-like flavor and are employed in many dishes throughout the world. This palette captures the greenery of the leaves, the brown dirt and the delicate pink flowers to compose a pastel-like, well-rounded palette which goes well with mellow, natural compositions but will also work for slimes and grime.
Extracted from Brazilian vegan cosmetics producer, Vizella. The specific product is "Às Quartas Usamos Rosa!" (We use pink at Wednesdays, freely translated) eyeshadow. This is a reference to 2004 movie "Mean Girls", a teen comedy movie about a girl who has to deal with school cliques and bullying. This specific cosmetics set is not tested in animals and thus, vegan supporters can safely buy these. The pink tones, contrasting with blue and brown, gives it a warm feeling with a good sense of presence, matching well with similarly bright attires and accessories.
This cheesy palette was made by sourcing colors from different varieties of - you guessed it - cheese. Dangerously cheesy!
Colors sampled from Yuko Tomita's 1984 city pop album, "Time".
