My Eyesssss......
Ugh... I am having such issues seeing colors properly right now... and I have no idea why. I've been having this problem more and more recently. I remember in my early arting days when I had problems with some colors - for instance, I used to color myself an off-shade of green, instead of brown, and didn't even know until some of my friends asked why I was green. I find now that I actually have to LOOK at what the freaking color pencils say, to know what color I'm using. >_<

This fucking sucks, and I have a badge to finish tonight, too. *sighs* I'm gonna go shut my eyes for a bit...

*gives Jessie a hug* You're not the only one who has some eyes problems my vision is starting to blur when I have to look ahead in dim light, like when it is raining out.

well.. women cant be genetically color blind :P
i think what it is is lighting :/you need bright white light to see what colors you're using properly.. overly yellow light will contaminate the colors and dim/no light = no color differentiation :P
Also, always test the pencils you're using. i always do a little color swatch test on another piece of paper to make sure those are the colors i want.
some colored pencil brands are inconsistant with their pigments 9.9 like a pencil can be called 'black' but it could really be greeny black or reddish black or truely black :P

Hon, I've seen the lighting you use when you're arting.. THat's.. BAD.. VERY BAD. You need to get yourself a uniform colour spectrum light. I've got one of those desk lamp things from Costco that basically simulates sunlight.

Your eyes are adapting to that yellowish tinge from the incandescent lights you're using. Take care of your eyes hon, they're the only pair you've got.

*warm hugs!*

Seconding just about everything said above.
Get a proper white light.
Go see a doctor.
And don't stress out! ;.;

That sucks! O_o
oddly i've been having trouble with colours, lately, too but I think for me it's just lack of sleep and stress :-\
*huggles* try getting some rest and getting some fresh air and caffeine. :)

Looking at too much porn has corrupted your eyes!!

actually Its most likely due to the lighting wherever you are. You need bright white light rather than the offset yellow light you get from most bulbs. FYI florescent bulbs suck because they can give you a nasty headache from the "flicker".

I actually have a Car headlight for my “studio” light with a DC converter to run the power.
Direct Current = Kick Alternating Current’s ass … as far as lights go.

Hm... what you decide (using green instead of brown) sounds like a partial colour blindness, one that "only" effects the distinction of red and green.

I don't know if such a thing is permanent or if it can get better again. Maybe you should go and have your eyes checked? Colour blindness, be it a partial one, is an "ungood" thing to happen to an artist. O.o

If it's really an issue with your eyesight, and not just the kind of light you're working in ... it sounds like a lack of Vitamin A.
