I'll be using the 30 Days of Characters to give faces to supporting roles whose designs I haven't pinned down yet, for background characters so I won't trip up on designs when drawing crowd scenes, and misc.

This is Mary Park. She just got into a great medical school.

I can relate to her :'D

That's a really good idea for this challenge. The colour palette is really nice, I love those greens *w*

Thanks! I thought putting her in muted colours wouldn't make much sense since she already dyes her hair a bright colour! Also I just really like the colour green :3

She looks ready to take on the world.

Is there any particular process you use for selecting colour palettes?

It's not very sophisticated: I'll sometimes pick a skintone from a photo (and saturate it) and then I mostly just eyeball the rest until I think it looks good. I usually have an idea of one specific colour I want to use in a design (in this case her hair) and the other colours are chosen with that colour in mind.

I LOVE her design!
