What is the more Natural Gradient?

which gradient feels more natural between these 2 colors?


I’d say the bottom one.

Bottom one also feels most natural too me! Though, the top one feels smoother in my opinion.
I like the look of the bottom one the most :blush:

I guess I will implement both methods then.

Upper. In the lower appear too saturated shades of other colors.
However, adding variety to the palette may not be so bad.

Rakurri said it best for me. Its not a straight forward either or answer.


Top looks more digital, while bottom one more traditional - I guess the first one is more of a linear transition you would get with a gradient tool in krita or any other painting application. I would like to have the possibility to switch to the second one in a gradient tool though, when I want more painterly look (and that’s often).
So for me it’s the bottom one, as it’s not something I would expect - also would like to see if other colors transition that well too.

it works with “any” selected color already on both methods.

I was just not even expecting the difference of colors to be so noticeable on each method, I kinda stumbled on this I only had a suspicion considering how color spaces work that is why I gave it a shot. I choose green and pink at random to make the question really.

But I got undecided after it started spewing out values my way and its usefulness but the math seems to be working properly.

Now I am making a panel to interpolate in one way and another similar panel to interpolate the other way so you can choose which you want to use.


took me a bit but here it is working

that was a good thing to do since I will be able to interpolate more stuff now if I need to.
