This post has the most notes ever. Thanks, print people! You are sad people.
imma stop and say that this logic only applies strictly to production print methods of color production.
the reason photoshop has RGB and CMYK divide options for color divisions is because theres no tried and true division of the color wheel. sorry print folks, but warm/cool colors exist outside the print shop. no artist uses JUST those reds and blues to make colors anyway. theres always AT LEAST two incarnations of red/blue/yellow present on even the most basic of painting 1 student palettes. this is because the temperature division between the colors allows for an easy way to combine many useful shades and hues without diluting them with black or white, as would be the case if one were to strictly adhere to this CMYK method.
and this is ignoring the fact that even in the damn macro the color for cad red and “normal” red AND ultramarine blue and “normal” blue are different hex values.
y’all artists gotta be smarter than falling for janky hype-ass print-method-forward sub par tumblr macros. and i dont even paint.
