In a year where many people are being pressured to make their work appear as black as possible, designers are finding ways to do so.
One such example is the trend of “black and white” design, in which the designer uses white in a light gray to match the design colors in the photo.
This is not only more economical for designers but also easier to do in Photoshop, where the designer can simply use a dark gray color palette to match their image.
In many cases, the dark gray colors are actually more transparent than the white ones.
However, some designers are starting to realize the value of this type of color palette when they are using it in their artwork.
Illustration artist Jason Zweifel, who has been using this technique for years, is starting to notice that it’s not always a good idea to use a light grey color palette.
Zweiffel explained, “I had a very long time working in black and white, and then the light grey was the new normal.
I thought, well, I don’t want to use this palette, it’s boring.”
Zweifels latest work, “Dancing In The Light,” uses the same light gray color scheme as his previous work, and uses the shadows and highlights to highlight the contrast of the black and gray.
The piece is created in Photoshop in the same way, and it’s available as a free download from his website.
