I'm used to traditional value scales. You start with a dark color and end with the light version of that color. That doesn't seem to be the DMP method, so I need someone to confirm to me that my understanding is correct.
From watching the videos and reading the steps, I understand DMP method to be
- Making the darkest color of an object,
- Adjusting that color to a lighter step in value,
- Trying to match that lighter value to some spot in the object one is mixing for,
- And finally, upon finding that lighter value in the object, tweaking one's color to be the color one sees at the "matched value" spot.
In short, the value scale being created are not actually a smooth transitioning from light to dark of one color, but instead a range of colors, all of which are found in the object, that together make up a value scale for the object.
Is this correct? Thanks.
