yeh, its one of the few things that annoys me when i paint: If you have a dark color, and you put a light color next to it, and then a lighter one, theres a good chance all of them are the same value, you just cant see it because of the values next to it :D

Which makes them different shades of gray, so to say.. Which doesn't explain a god damn thing. They are different PERIOD.

I agree completely. He didn't explain how the shades are different and they just blended in.

I feel cheated with the answer given.

The top of the second row is slightly lighter than the bottom of the first row, even though the the tops of both rows are the same, the brain assumes the rows are one solid shade, not a gradient, the brain then interprits each row being lighter than the last

The top row seems to be darker because you have lighter color (milk/cheese white) on the top. And you can't see that "real" gradient in the top row because it... "blends in" way too perfectly.

A slight gradient you say? Might one call them...fifty shades of grey?

The bottom of those diamonds has the same color as the row of diamonds above it, so it's just an illusion wich tricks you into thinking the diamonds have one color.   
Just hold something thin horizontally in the middle of a row, you'll see what I mean.

Doesn't have to do with shadow effects and shading?
User avatar #80 to #15 - nicoquitemad (05/11/2013) [-]
Well the diamonds are all gradually shaded darker from top to bottom, so... I guess?
User avatar #129 to #80 - dragonicangel (05/11/2013) [-]
the way I learned it was that due to their different shading, the diamond changes color to accommodate to that light field.

something to do with lighting or an optical illusion of some sort, but they're all the same colour.
#93 to #81 - slend (05/11/2013) [-]
It is because of the white on the top. Hold your finger over the white, and all looks the same.
User avatar #109 to #93 - sectioneight (05/11/2013) [-]
Umh.. no, they don't?

They're gradients.

I took a triangle from each row and placed them next to each other. They're all the same but just look different because of the transgression from dark to light on each one.
