    Cyan magenta and yellow are the primary colors of light... and when you mix all 3 together you don't get black, you get white light. Try it.

    I don't know where you get your dang *Y* in R *G* B ?!? RGB is accurate. Its the three colors we have receptors for in our eyes.
    But in fact booth RGB and MYC are primary colors. Just in a different context. RGB for Light and MYC for Pigment
    RGB is *additive* . That means if you combine red, green and blue *light* you get white (or more accurately what appears white to us humans)
    With MYC you *substract* color from white light. M is *W* hite - G, Y is W - B and C is W - R
    So on paper what happens when you are blending colors is you subtract colors from the spectrum. That's why you get green when combining yellow and cyan -> W = RGB; (RGB - B) - R = G
    While on screen with pixels (not simulated paint of your art-program) you get yellow by combining red and green -> R + G = W - B
    And that explains also why you are left with a black/brownish mess when combining R G and B on paper. A red pencil removes all but red light from the spectrum and if you add a different pigment that removes red (which Blue and green do) you are left with nothing (black)

    okay but the point of primary colors is that you can’t make them,, you use them to make OTHER colors. i have also known that magenta can be made using (given that you’ve already made) purple + red + white while painting, cyan can be made with blue + green (given you’ve already made it) + white. i’m sorry but in all honesty no matter what anyone says i am going to stick with what i’ve always been taught is that RYB are the primary colors.

    I really think that your primary set is going to depend on the media that you are working with. When I learned my color theory, CMY(K) was used for printing (ie ink) and that's why I think that it worked so well with your markers. RYB was taught as the primary set for things like paint and pencils. And RGB (yes, that's correct there) is intended for light (look really close at your TV or monitor and you will see that each pixel is a combination of RGB.

  • Vicky Gotham

    The reason RYB isn't working is because you are using physical drawing materials not digital. RGB are additive colours and when using on digital screen combine to make white - something to do with the lights used on a screen/monitor. But in the physical world due to the colours absorbing light (on a red surface all the other colours are absorbed and only the red rays are being reflected to the eye) they are subtractive colours which is why when they come together they create black.
    This is also why you should set your colour modes from RGB to CMYK in photoshop if you intend to make a printed piece because the colours (especially green) come out slightly different to what you have on screen.

  • mythlover20
    mythlover20 2 days ago

    When the colours are mixed the tones they make are always darker. RYB is already dark in tone, and they make darker tones much easier. MYC are lighter in tone than RYB, so it takes a little more to make darker tones but they make lighter tones much easier than RYB. Both sets of primaries can make the other set, so what set of primaries you use depend on what tones you need and what medium you are using as each works best with various mediums.
    Real life rarely offers straight binary choices: yes or no, or this over that. The vast, VAST majority of times, the answer will inevitably be "both."

    I don’t know about colour theory as much, but I do know that the colour cones in a humans eyes are Red, Yellow, Blue, which to me, would make those colours our primary colours. (Other mammals and also insects especially, have many more colour cones in their eyes and so can se way more colours than we can, but for the sake of not being complicated, lets stick to what humans can see! Lol!)
    Also, Aren’t Magenta and Cyan just different shades of Red and Blue anyway? That would also indicate the true Primary colours are Red Yellow and Blue.

    It's also a matter of "Additive" vs "Subtractive" coloring. RGB (what monitors use) is additive color, you're adding light (to black) where CMYK is subtractvie, you're removing color from White (full spectrum color). Working with markers, colored pencils, or paints are forms of subtractive coloring.

      And OF COURSE cmy is better for traditional art since traditional is inherently subtractive. In digital art since it's additive you need to use rgb.

  • C Chinnock
    C Chinnock 6 days ago

    Is this for real? You should explain RGB are the primary colours for mixing light (such as a computer monitor or tv) and CYM is mixing mediums such as paint. There's not one or the other. They are both correct for different reasons.

    Man, I'm a painter so I might be biased, but one time I ONLY had MYC paint and I swear to god I couldn't mix shit! Literally, ALL of my greens were way off and I could NEVER get the perfect shade of blue. I ended up getting fed up and went to the store to get more RYB. I then painted the same exact scenery with RYB instead of MYC and everything turned out perfect. RYB will always be better.

    Color is subjective. Cyan is part of the blue realm and magenta from thee red realm.
    The pigments and binders are the final word on how colors mix. Colors have proprietary color formulas. Reflex blue on one color chart will be different from another.
    Bottom line, use what works best for you.

    When I went through graphic design and communications in high school it was CMYK. Cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. It was used for printing. Photoshop has modes like RGB or CMYK depending on what you're doing and if your art is for print or web. I always go by RYB when using traditional mediums, RGB on web based stuff.

  • Olga Hein

    Alright, again I wonder: Don't people learn that in school? I did in 5th or 6th grade, and I know they are teaching that in german schools nowadays too. Maybe it's just one of those things that are easily forgotten, and just stuck in my brain for 20 years because I found it interesting. Here's the thing:
    - CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow. The K is not a color really, just an aditional something that is needed for printer color and I forgot what it is) ARE the primary color for solid surfaces. The important part here is COLOR, as it refers to paint, ink, etc. Cyan and magenta is blue, magenta and yellow is red, yellow and cyan is green. When you mix all of them in exactly the same amount, you will get something that is nearly black, but usually that's not possible so it's different shades of brown (remember Bob Ross saying there is no black in nature? That's the reason).
    - RGB (red, green, blue. The german word for yellow - gelb - has nothing to do with it, as some comments here imply) are the primary colors of light. The important part here is LIGHT. Red light and green light equals yellow, red light and blue light equals magenta, blue light and green light equals cyan. They all mixed together in the exact amount equal white. Like the sun on midday.
    CMY are the primary colors of paint, wich can give you any other color possible when mixed differently or layered. Except black and white, and that's why those 2 are not considered as colors (Also, because color is, per definition, created by a surface reflecting a certain spectrum of light, while absorbing another spectrum. And because white reflects all of it, while black absorbs all of it, they are per definition also not colors) . This goes for every drawing and painting medium.
    RGB though are light waves, more specific a certain spectrum of light (the RGB light spectrum). This is the colored light used on screens (as they are colored light created behind the glass of the screen and lit in different amount, depending on the data transferred to the screen). When you get very close to a TV screen that is at least 20 years old (or older) you can literally see that.
    I think this misconception of red, yellow and blue being the primary colors is rooted in exactly that, that people mixed up the difference between solid color and light spectrum, especially as for the last 20 years digital art was on the rise, and people see the RGB all the time when they are online. You still need to transform it into CMYK mode for printing, but that usually goes automatically nowadays.
    And that, dear children, was a very very basic crash course of optics, that I had for a month in my physics class 20 years ago. Gosh, I'm 31 and I feel old.
    Oh, I forgot another reason why ppl might thing RYB could be the primary colors: Color wheel, or more exactly: Color theory. I don't know how many people have actually read the books explainig that, but color theory is by no means to be a guide about primary colors and possible mixtures. It is meant to show different effects that different contrasts of color theory have on the mood of the art and the viewer, like a tutorial for how to make pleasant or not so pleasant color combinations. The color wheel is supposed to visualize it.
    When you look close enough, you will see that pink and light blue can not be created by using any color from that. Unless you add white to red or blue. And then you can't create all colors, as magenta or cyan. Never.
    The problem here is, that in the english language the colors on the first/inner color wheel are also called primary colors. I forgot about that actually. Maybe because in german, the language I learned all that, the color theory colors are called primary colors (and then secondary colors, etc), while the primary colors that we are all talking about are called 'Grundfarben' (or: Basisfarben) wich translates roughly as base colors (or basic/foundation colors).
