Just a question…. So DBH has 10 color limit per design right?

If I use AI and I picked the basic color “Green” and I adjusted HSB will this considered as 3 colors?....

Also in photoshop there are some splatter brush that gives fade effect.. Will this be considered as 2 or 3 colors?

What I did on that second image is.. I used a splatter brush.. and then I color pick the darker red.. and the Lighter red.. and it came out with 2 different tone.

Wotto is going to address this a bit later when he gets a moment.

The top 3 would be considered 3 separate colors. The only way you could do that with less colors is to use a halftone of maybe black or white over it to make the color lighter or darker.

The red color is a tad confusing, to me it looks like a one color brush effect. I’m not seeing the pink in that. That effect could be created using one red as a screen print.

Thanks for the answer… And yes, the 2nd image is a brush effect. So does that mean It only uses 1 screen print if I that kind of brush in photoshop?

Yes, with gradient effect has two tones. My solution is i convert it to halftones so that i can use only 1 color.

The red brush effect could be created using only one color. However if you want to give your work depth and tone like Roncabardz does so well, then yes use two colors layered.
