    A couple i have done. Working on more. I also lost my pictures so i dont have the older ones i have done. I made a purple and black, that was a beauty.

    Red and gold was for a marine vet, and the lime green for a navy vet.

    Here's a thought from a designer (an old colorist trick).

    Pick color schemes from Mother Nature.

    For example, take a photo of something that catches your eye. Open it in Photoshop or an app that lets you sample colors and pick colors from the pallet until you get the best combination. You will never run out of ideas.

    A few examples, I picked these, but a fish contains its own distinct pallets:

    I love this thread (no pun, I swear!)

    I really like the “dry” photos, it really helps see the methodology for some of these intricate wraps. Cheers to all that have shared here! Keep them coming!
