Pinkie Pie Color Guide 2.0 [UPDATED] by kefkafloyd Pinkie Pie Color Guide 2.0 [UPDATED] by kefkafloyd

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

New and improved! [ERROR FIXED] The hex code for Pinkie's body fill was wrong, but the actual swatch was right. This has been fixed.

All of the color guides are getting a revamp. The guides are all now two pages, one for digital applications (such as vectors, painting in Photoshop, 3D modeling, etc) and the other for print applications (customs, merch, T-shirts, et cetera). The PNG preview for the digital guide should be OK to use as well, so the PDF is optional.

If you use Google Chrome or Safari, they will attempt to open the file in-line with Google Docs PDF viewer. DO NOT EYEDROP THOSE COLORS. SAVE THE PDF FILE. The Google Docs viewer displays in a very low bit depth that results in dithering of the colors. Until Deviantart gives me a way to disable this, you should use the download file link to view the guide!

They are also now more space efficient, and will be able to scale better with ponies that have more colors than normal.

The Digital guides aim to be as close to the show as possible, while the print guides aim to be as close to official merch as possible. When there's no merch of that pony (e.g. background ponies) then the print colors will be based on my conversions which will aim to reproduce the show without looking too weird or have obvious gamut problems.

It is safe to eyedrop the digital colors or use the hex/RGB codes - the swatches should match up just fine. Just make sure you're working in sRGB color mode.

For the merch guides, the spot colors are rendered using CMYK alternate color space. This is based on my own examinations of the merch boxes, where the spot colors are simulated straight to process anyway.

There is a rare error with the incidental palette for Pinkie Pie that involves the Tongue color being swapped from the usual orange to a different pink.

When I use these color codes on Inkscape, and hit ctrl + c ctrl + v the colors come out invisible and I have to switch them to the solid color. Is that supposed to happen?

Never used Inkscape, so I can't really say. Sorry. :(
