AAAU Eliwood and Hector by Kyusil
AAAU Eliwood and Hector

Have some middle-aged FE7 lords in this Ace Attorney AU thing I keep picking at.

The murder of Hector, the chief of police, marks an omen for the conspiracy threatening to engulf Elibe's justice system. By framing Eliwood, the murderer seeks to kill two birds with one stone. Naturally, the last thing anyone expects is Lilina's intervention on behalf of the man accused of killing her father. Eliwood and Lilina have the relationship of mentor and student, and ultimately his faith in reasoned, transparent court proceedings has had more influence over her than Hector's "shoot first, ask questions later" philosophy. Having lost (respectively) a best friend and a father in Hector, their mutual support is invaluable.

I'm intrigued by the color palette memes that have been going around, but something about their execution bothers me. Namely, it seems like artists are applying color palettes at random to just... regular drawings? Like there isn't any particular reason you're drawing Character X in the palette of a watermelon other than you generated that palette at random and felt like drawing that character. Or someone requested that character with that palette, which to me makes even less sense.

Maybe it's because I'm sort of a student of animation, but it seems to me like the colors of a piece should reflect something meaningful about that imagery? That's what the business of lighting in film and stage is about. There's a rhyme and reason to the way colors interact, and when catalyzed effectively with subject matter and context it can have very striking results. With this meme, I'm noticing a lack of intent in the use of colors, which doesn't strike me as something that would be helpful to the artists in question.

Of course, the purpose of the meme is likely to just get people to play around with color, and that's fine. If you decided to draw your favorite character in shades of purple, I'm not attacking you personally. It just seems to me to reflect sort of a widespread lack of understanding of color theory-- which I'm guilty of too. Only my guilt lies in doing either very safe palettes or drawing in grayscale!

Hey! Thanks for linking me to the original artist of the Fire Emblem scene. When possible I like to link to original artists, just with the vast re-posting of the internet it's difficult to do sometimes. Much appreciated.
