Inspired by my very favorite coffee brand of the same name. Made by Longbottom Coffee and Tea, the beans are nearly black, and there's virtually zero bitterness to the flavor no matter how bold it's brewed.
A pink hue that sums up the personality of an online acquaintance of mine, who calls himself "Jiggy." He was kind of surprised at how bold it turned out, considering he fashions himself as timid and innocent. Still, I think a strong pink suits his enigmatic e-persona rather well!
Oregon is a very green region where I live, just west of the Cascade mountains. Here, I simply tried to find a happy medium between all the various shades of green Oregonians can see on a regular basis in the summer.
Rufus is one of several antagonists from the PlayStation game "Final Fantasy VII," and probably my favorite. I considered naming the color after the company he runs called: "ShinRa," but I felt it was a little too well-known.
"Didymus" is a pseudonym given to "Thomas the Apostle" of the Bible, whom my dad was named after. In coming up with brown as the color that best represented my dad, I remembered that he's been working in the lumber industry for most of his adult life.
This color closely resembles "cadet blue." It's also the color used for "Welkin," the male lead from "Valkyria Chronicles," a PlayStation 3 game that essentially redefined the way people look at games as an art form.The word "welkin" simply means: "heaven" or "sky."
Purple used to be my favorite color, awhile before I got into brighter shades like yellow and green. My appreciation returned, however, after being introduced to the Japanese Arcade shooting game called: "Mushihime-sama Futari," which translates roughly to: "Together With the Bug Princess." Réco is the female lead who sports hair of the same color. Futari is one of the most exotically-colorful games I've ever seen, and I'll be so pumped when I can finally get an Xbox 360 and play it!
Since this is similar in hue to "Dodger blue," I thought it would be appropriate to name it after one of its players, André Ethier. His name sounded pretty cool when I heard it, so it was an easy choice.
By wanting to create my own variant of "midnight green," I went a little darker and added just a hint of blue. This is probably my favorite shade of green now. I came up with the name while writing out ideas for a spaceship in my screenplay, which resembles the Ark of the Old Testament.
