Tick the "Submit to weekly challenge" check box above the submit button when submitting a new piece. If you forgot to tick it, I think you should resubmit it.

The fuck is up with that wikipedia article?

"a specific type of portrait [...] that realistically demonstrates a person's appearance" (emphasis mine)

"A modern portrait for today's branding, casting and social media needs."

The shills got to it.

Also, robots aren't people? Tell it to the Bicentennial Man.

Hey! I definitely don't speak for everyone on here, but what I assume most peeps do is just copy the image of the palette directly to their program of choice.

I'd recommend you going with GIMP or GraphicsGale, both are free but you have the option to pay for GraphicsGale to get some bonus stuff.

Hey guys, SUPER new here. I really want to join this challenge but I don't even know how to get these colors on my pallette. How do you guys do it/what programs do you guys sprite on?

Nah, robots aren't people. You don't have to use all the colours.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/22/2014 15:07

Do robots count? (I know it says potrait of any person, but robot's would be cool too :'( )

Really hard to not create an eyeburn affect with this pallete.

any person you want = Barack Obama
