11 Color palette

A Color Palette makes the decorating choices so much easier and helps connect one illustration to the next, so that even if the style varies a bit, it will still make sense. illustraStock produces digital illustrations for web, web books and digital devices. That’s why an 8-bit color palette (web-safe color palette) is necessary for more lightweight illustrations.

Always select RGB from the Color Mode list.

Base colors

The default colors are:

  • Strokes: black – K90
  • Fills: white – K0

A stroke is a line of color that precisely follows a path. A fill is a color enclosed by a path.


  • In situations when we require to do 1 px size object ( a dot), we will use Fill color (K90) and NO Stroke.

  • If you are creating a line, not a closed path, we will use just the Stroke color (K90) and NO Fill.
