    My Close Friend, Protanopia

    Is anybody in this vast artist's community affected by red-green color-blindness? Or more specifically...any kind of color-blindness?

    Yup........I walk down a crowded street and only see people.

    I think one of the guys over at ninja mountain is red/green color blind. I think I heard him talking about it on one of the podcasts, shoot over to their forums and ask.

    I have the exact color blindness that you describe. It really doesn't affect anything art related. I just couldn't be a pilot or something like that. I can see red and greed fine, it's just that a certain shade of red and green when thay are juxtaposed next to each other. I could see it if I focus specifically on it, but my brain won't perceive it if I don't look for it.
    As an example, when napster first came out, I had trouble distinguishing between the green and red dots. I thought they were all red until a friend made me realise that there was green and red.

    They are, but they look red to me. Originally, there were also red dots for incomplete files and I had trouble telling them appart. If I focus on one specifically, I can see that its green but if I dont't, it looks kind of like an optical illusion and sort of bleeds between red and green. I gave this as an example because this was the first time I really experienced it even though I already knew I was colorblind between red and green.

    Yea, similar colour deficiency here. Deuteranopia I believe.

    To an extend I'd have to disagree with sarc though as it can affect your art. Below you can see a sketch I did several years ago. As you can see, some of the explosions are green whereas they should have been red/orange. Someone else had to point that out to me (much love to Conceptart.org critique..).

    It's very apparent to me now, and I won't make that mistake again. Still this is something I do have to consider while painting and it can be a pain sometimes. Practice goes a long way though, and I know my sense of colour has improved since then. I guess I intend to fix this deficiency the best I can .

    I'm just assuming you're an artist with similar problems. I hope that was informative!

    I have no problem seeing that the explosions on the left are green in the sketch above so I guess it depends on the specific colorblindedness of the person.
