Ok...

 

I was surprised that this isn't a thread already here even though the post in reddit is 8 days old. (maybe I missed it in the FPN, in that case consider this thread obsolete).

 

https://www.reddit.c...liminary_round/

 

Time to load up your preference for the colors ladies & gentlemen.

I want a really deep dark red (darker than the Cult Pens) but in the same color palette as the Oxblood.

 

The poll will stay up for 2 weeks if I'm not wrong.

Thanks. I had missed it on reddit, even though I check the subreddit several times a day. Gave my input as well.

What color did you opt for?

I made two suggestions:

1. A black or very dark blue green ink with purple, blue and green shimmer. My vision being oil on a black asphalt.

An oil spill has the full color spectrum, but I'm interested only in the cooler tones.

2. A petrol green-blue in a shade I've yet to come across. The exact color code being RAL 5001 blue green.

Update on the Diamine reddit poll, you can vote for the final rounds here:

Not much being talked around here eh?

 

Anyway I was surprised that my preference of a dark red has made it into the final rounds with the other options being as usual a turquoise-teal color palette.

By the polls, it is also winning by a large margin compared to the second place currently.

Aurora Borealis wasn't my cup of tea, but I loved Earl Grey. I'm very curious about this "black cherry" especially how it'll compare with Oxblood and other dark reds.

The black cherry seems to have a commanding lead, which is okay with me.  I can't wait to see it; I love Aurora Borealis -- it almost instantly became one of my favorite inks.

The Black Cherry looks interesting especially with some shading and sheen.
