bullet Topic: 20 Color Comp
    Posted: 23 November 2011 at 12:43pm
This comp is open to everyone and is quite simple. Submit your ultimate 20 color unique + original color palette.

These palettes are not to be considered art so no adding to your galleries. The winning palette will be used on PJs latest collab project so if you make a palette you acknowledge that it will be used by others for the purpose of this project and credit may not be posted by participants if they submit their project piece to their gallery but you will get overall credit for it.

*Its best to assume that other's may use your palette so by entering you are giving permission to all.

Win a spiffy trophy + points which are rare and will look great in your profile.
+1000 Pts-1st Place+500 Pts-2nd Place +250 Points-3rd Place+100 Pts-Honorable Mention

*only 1 honorable mention will be given for this contest but its the best looking one so trying to get that one is a mini-goal on its own

Judging will be held by your PJ Mods - Pie, cure, Hatch, ska, Jeremy, Reo, Delicious and jal along with some select PJ members. (You may comment on your fave palettes and sway the vote).

Winning palettes will be picked on the basis of how it would work on the project theme, which will be kept a mystery for this contest to participants. A unique + original palette is the goal but a well balanced palette is important too.

Use this template for your submission.
You must name the HEX values and NO black - 000000 or white - FFFFFF

Post your entry on this thread!!!
Comp closes Friday, December 2, 2011. (CLOSED)

I dont know how to make those awesome palette charts that DawnBringer does, but I did a few tests color reducting some images using this palette, and I think it can work really well :)

here is mine.

Based on a ramp with some of my most liked colors from my regular artwork. (obviously i'm digging beige, or grey tones, this one contains a wide ramp of beige to brown)



They fade into the dark brown over to dark red. And contain a grey to neutralize.



Did a Colorspace Test. They lack of a really bright highlight color but i hope they can still offer depth and light.


Quick test:
hmmm.. need more contrast.. back to work i guess :)

This is my first time making a palette, so I hope it is original + unique (or even good at all). I went with a lot of purples, and a possibly daring range of saturation and values.



No examples right now, I'll try and whip something up though.

I lurv muted tones. And yet, I never seem to use 'em (or use 'em right) in my pieces.

I might work on it a bit more but I might as well post it before I get disinterested.

EDIT:
@Codewarrior
Mind if I try your palette out? It looks very nature-y. :D

I really like the palettes posted so far. They are amazing. This is my palette entry. I've never really had a preset palette but I took this opportunity to create one that I believe has some range. I'll post example if time permits.

same with black bg

Really did my best on this one, perhaps my most balanced palet to date. Lets hope it gets some votes because the honourable mention award would look really good on my profile!

How do you all do those color reduction things with your palette? Or those really insightful saturation graphs?

Some very nice stuff already 
@TropicalSnowcone, it takes a little time to add new entries.

@ Pandora'sSecret, Everyone has their own way to go about this. A simple way is to get any pixelart you've already made and change the colors to your pallete and see if it works. If your software can handle it take any image from google and outout image with a 20 color limit and then use your palette to test the image. That's what I think Jinn did above. What codewarrior and Dawnbringer do is handled with GraFXwhich is free and excellent software for pixelart. Give it a try.

@all, from now on if you see a Mod comment ending with
UPDATE
and your entry is above it but not added to judging post...then comment to let us know.


UPDATE!

ok, ok.. i obviously had fun doing this.. if its good for anything we'll see =)

here 2 color-tables in "addition" to nr.1.

Entry 2: hopefully more universal usable.



Entry 3: a x.mas-palette. since x-mas is soon to come you never know ^.-
(was trying a different method on that one..digging through x-mas images and tried to grab a range of the most appearing colors and fiddle that into a palette)



and i think now you're safe of further entries of me.

And how do you get to the palette tests on Grafx2? I can't figure it out to save my life.

@mdog95:

Simple Instruction for you:

Download the scripts for it.
Here f.x.
Forumpost (dawnbringer)

Make sure you got the latest version of the programm. (he mentioned that some of them only work above 2.3 i think)

Run the Scripts: either start the main-script directly [see attached readme file, also for placement of the files] or rightclick the brushfactory in GrafX to open available scripts and localize the ones you want to use.

Logical: ensure that you open an image only containing the colors of your palette or define a transparency(if you dont want surrounding colors being analysed too. It falsyfies the all-over results, at least for palette-analysis purposes).

Reading the Results takes a bit of understanding for colors, hue, sat etc. But since everything is displayed in various ways (cube, color space views, brightness/darkness, closest colors, comparing etc) it should help you to understand when you inspect them.

Was actually using other methods before with custom scripts for Photoshop, but that lua-pack for GrafX and the included palettecheck and 3D palette animation is pretty sweet for that purpose too.

Hope this answer helped :]

Thanx codewarrior.

A few notes about the Grafx2 scripts/ToolBox:
* Some of my scripts are bundled with Grafx2, but you'll have to download the ToolBox.

* The scripts in the forum post should work ok, there's a newer version at my profile...but I made a mistake in that one (forgot to put things in a dir called "dawn"). I'll try to make an update soon.

* My analysis screen are usually a composition of the results from several scripts (Analyze, Polar Bri-Hue Diagrams, Draw Bri-Hue Diagram).

* Here's a WIP Doc for the ToolBox

@ bem:

Open "my images" on your Imageshack account, and click on the small "i" icon ('share') next to your palette-image.

In the popup you will find a field called "forums"

Copy the link that starts and ends with: [IMG] http:// XXX[ /IMG]

..then paste it into your post here. :)

Okay, so i just figured out that my last palette was not al that good to actually work with.. haha, still like the colors though.

anyways, entry #2. Do you agree that it is much better? workable?
Still feels a bit too saturated on some colors.

No, it looks workable. the bright magenta doesn't seem like it would blend well with any of the other colors though.

It was a little frustrating to decide which colors to include and which to leave out. I think mostly because I want to be as inclusive as I can, but can only have a few representatives from each category of colors, and didn't want a category to have just one color in it. I think I'll make a second palette that's more theme based instead of trying to get as many different colors in as I could.



The goal here was to include good representation from as many major categories of color as possible with interconnected ramps. Depending on how you look at it there's 6 blues, 4-5 greens, 2-3 yellows, 3-4 reds/oranges, 5 browns, 6 greys, 1 black, and 2 whites. About 30-32 total using 20 colors.

When making this I set it up in a way where I could see every one of the 20 colors touching every other color to check for clashing colors. I was also focusing on taking the ramps as much as possible from near black to near white.

I had gone back and forth between a warm tannish grey, this blue grey, and outright purple. The tannish one left the palette as a whole too warm, and the purple was too similar to blue for me to see much difference. Purple is a hard color for me to use. @_@

Do you mean the numbers and letters above or below each color? That's the hexadecimal value for them. There's always 6 numbers/letters in hex when it's used for colors. The first two represent the R, or red, channel in RGB, the next two are the green channel, and the last two are blue. It's a way of writing the RGB value of a color using just 6 numbers/letters instead of at least 9, plus punctuation, like this- 123, 234, 132

Here's a handy RGB to Hex converter- LINK


If you mean a regular name, I like to call my colors things like "super blue" and "super red" etc.

My votes in no particular order: dpixel & a3um II, thug, codewarrior I, and Losm.

Here is mine. I call it the slightly saturated 20 color HSV palette.



Edit: I am disqualifying myself, Dawn has already made a similar palette!



Mine: His:

I'm guessing we used the same technique.
