comment How do I determine darker or lighter color variant of a given color?
@Geek Convert the color from RGB to HSV, then throw away the V. Then call HSVtoRGB with the HS values and iterate with increasing values of V to generate the different RGB shades. Or if you want to start with your initial value and just make them a bit brighter, just add a small amount to each V for each iteration instead of starting at 0.
