List of Colors Used to Draw The Simpsons

Courtesy Don Del Grande

Simpsons Colors as taken from "How To Draw" AfterDark module and the Pantone->RGB definitions in CorelDraw.

To convert RGB (0-255) to CMYK (0-100): first, determine preliminary C,M,Y components by taking C = 100-(R/2.55), M=100-(B/2.55), Y=100-(G/2.55) and rounding off all three values; then, set K=the minimum of the preliminary C,M,Y values, and subtract this K from all three to get the final values (note at least one of C,M,Y,K will end up as zero).
