Author/Anime Color Palette Series: Maedeh x Athrun Zala

Welcome to my author/anime color palette series! Where my obsession with hex codes and middle grade/graphic novels come together. I'll break down an author's photo color palette and which animated character they remind me of.

Maedeh B. Saaina, @MaedehSaaina, is recognized for not only being one of Iran's youngest female university professors but also for providing great mentorship to fellow writers (including mentoring in #PitchWars). She contributes as a director's assistant and co-producer for one of Iran's most popular podcasts, Yuri!!! on RADIO. As a children's book and young adult writer, she is also working on several projects: Daryan (manga), Dime a Dozen (novel), and White Satin (comic).

What's Maedeh's author color palette like?

Hex codes include: honeysuckle, fox chatter, wholly night, and skyward.

Like Athrun Zala in Gundam SEED, Maedeh's dedication to her craft shows the rewards of hard work as well as natural talent. Athrun discovers himself amidst the chaos of war. Ranking first in mobile suit piloting, discerning alliances, good-natured... Athrun shows many admirable qualities but the real test is controlling his emotions and discovering what he really wants.
