My LG Dare Drawing Pad application offers me a rainbow tool, and its color range is limited. No dark green, for example. Why is that?
So I decided to take a look at the colors, and math solved my problem.
Here's what the rainbow tool looks like as you apply it.
Pretty. And as I've discovered, a way to get more colors from the 6-color palette that the Dare offers. But why these colors?
Here's a breakdown of the individual colors in the rainbow, with the hex and RGB value underneath each color:
Here are the hex values - notice the pattern:F0F
That's the math of it. In hex values, each character is an color value. Red. Green. Blue. In that order.
0 = No color
8 = Half-Color
F = Full Color
And so it steps through, color to color, smoothly. Rainbow.
The reason I did this is to see if it's possible for the drawing pad application to render any color possible. Dark green? Gray?
And what I learned is yes. From 0 to F, it can step through the full range.
This is like window shopping. So close to a palette that would allow me to get full art rendering.
