Need Help in Coloring
I made these punk design clothes about three weeks ago. I understand that the model's pose is stiff. I was wondering, what types of punky colors should I use to make these clothes complete.
P.S. I will color in the sketch.

Uh, green? Dangit! I don't have my punky colorwheel handy.
I guess I don't understand the question. Couldn't you just select some colors that you like, and then match them in what you think are the best pairings?

Yeah, it's a bit of a weird request. You could just google "punk" and see what comes up, though I can tell you it'll be 80% black with touches of white and red. The designs are a bit boring/cliche though. Reminds me a lot of Avril Lavigne at the height of her fame, or anything you could find at a Hot Topic nowadays. I guess I always find it funny when people design stuff like this because if you go to any punk show everyone's hanging out in t-shirt and jeans. Ties are a fast way to strangle yourself in a pit and heels are asking for a snapped ankle.

OK, you've now scanned it. It's in digital form. Throw some colors on there and see what looks good. Then, open up the scan in a new file and do it again. And again. Play around with adjusting the color balance and hue/saturation. Lay some patterns and textures over it. You have nothing to be afraid of, you can't hurt your drawing, so go nuts. Once you have a version you like, if you want to go back and add color to the actual drawing, you'll know what to do.

I think the question stands what are these designs for? Are they supposed to be hardcore punk clothes, or just the average Hot Topic type of clothes? Are they for a character, are they supposed to be original/different from the usual mass, are they just practice on drawing clothes...?
Whether you should change them depends on that, since something being generic Hot Topic designs isn't a bad thing if that's what you're going for.
