Lomographic Color Studies: Chromatically Sinister

We've finally nailed down the basic colors from primary to secondary; now it's time to study other colors, hybrids, and palettes that make this world more complex and non-binary. As the days of the spook and horror approaches, we talk about the colors of malevolence.

When you look into character design, often your villains would wear dark, ebony drapes for menace, violent violets for status and lime green orbs for ambition. Aesthetics, too, paint the otherworldy and the unfamiliar in such palette. It doesn't necessarily mean it's evil, just that there's something ominous, fearful.

Shades of black, green, violet, with touches of blue and misty grey, these colors are meant to hide and be a continuous enigma. Landscapes are shown in dark fogs and mist to give you the chills of ever treading the unknown road. Witches are often depicted to be characters of evil, with their all-black attire, green-colored skin, purple potions to mix into their cauldron. Stereotypes, they are. Perhaps it speaks more about how we perceive things that are unknown. We are afraid.

And yet, there's nothing more thrilling than going deep the thicket of a dark, autumn forest.
