Very interesting to consider when applying to character design in art--whether comic or animation. I've instinctively matched my characters by certain colors that felt right by their attitudes and demeanor beforehand, and the course had indeed strengthened my resolve about them. I kind of wish that Professor Lidwell would've gone into more detail about some colors--such as green--and even included more colors like purple, though. All in all, however, it's very informative on the art of simply using color and is definitely one of the more interesting topics in the entirety of The Great Courses Plus. GO RED TEAM!
