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.
We are remembered only by what we leave behind.
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.
My Website I am available for work
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.
Is it just me or are all those dots green?
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!
