bullet Topic: 13 Color Comp
    Posted: 15 August 2013 at 2:16am
This comp is open to everyone and is quite simple. Submit your ultimate 13 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 PJ's 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.

* It's 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

* Honorable mentions may be given for this contest as needed.

Judging will be held by your PJ Mods, with some PJ members asked for private input. (You may comment on your fave palettes and sway the vote).

Winning palettes will be picked on the basis of overall quality + 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!!!

Contest closes on Thursday, September 5, 2013. CLOSED!


Winners of the 13 Color Palette Comp.

 Erstus+1000 Pts

 Night +500 Pts

 DawnBringer +250 Pts

 FlyGuy I+100 Pts
 [thUg] III+100 Pts
 a3um +100 Pts

Winners were chosen by your Mod staff and several invited PJ Members by ballot. All palettes were tested. The most total votes won.

Thanks to everyone for submitting great looking and quality palettes (49).

Should anyone use any of these palettes for any pixelart, please ask the creator for permission or at least give credit in your description.

This comp was to choose the palette for the next PJ forum iso collab.

Well, while I try to work out an idea for this week's challenge, I figure I can put my personal palette practice to some use.

There's no mention of how many palettes we can submit, so is it safe to assume we can submit multiple palettes?

Absolutely. But always remember if you submit a lot of palettes that are competing with eachother, you're thinning your own chances of winning.

this may sound like a lame question, but how do we get or hex code to appear above each color as in the template?

thanks, ErekT. Also, is there a quick way to make dither charts? Or does it have to be done by hand?

welp, here's mine. couldn't figure out what do with the 13th color, so I added in the almost-completely-unsaturated gray.

I didn't utilize the palette as best as I could..this is a recolor of some older work I did... I think with a few minor tweaks this palette can be spot on, I'm just having trouble figuring out where the ramps need work..

Nice job with the palette.  New rule states that you can't use pure white!

@shampoop, black and white are never allowed for these comps so that all have to create a palette with more care. That was just an omission in the news post and was always on this thread. Thx for pointing it out right away :)

Well, here is mine.
Still something of a WIP, so I wouldn't call it an official entry yet.

Still have to do some testing, but after doing some palette swapping on some pieces, I think it looks nice.
(Took forever to get the orange to work as a highlight for both the brown and the red though...)
Edit:
So, here is a mockup that I made with this palette.
I am going to adjust the red and blue as DawnBringer suggested, then I will call this my final entry.

I realize this palette doesn't encompass the entire color spectrum...but it's still my favorite color scheme.. It's a simplified version of the palette I used in my latest piece seen here... http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/79858.htm

 I have no clue if the palette is good or bad.  I'm really no artist nor do I have a knowledge of color theory.  I took my 20 color palette from last challenge and stripped it down.  The result is a smaller palette with better fluidity. i'll add hex #'s soon.  Should I make the white whiter?

yes phillipe, if you must but try to post finished if possible. If you have questions or want feedback then post as WIP and label it maybe.

@Friend. The 'white' you now have is nice.

Phew, 13 colors sure is hard. Most of these came out from my personal palette (which I made up recently). Is that OK, or should I make one from scratch just for the challenge?

Tried to lighten up the palette I submitted earlier. What do you guys think? Darker or lighter version?

The blue is better for sure. Don't know about the fleshy color. New one looks like it hugs the green too much? For overall allroundness tho I think it's probably better.

EDIT: Or not. I kinda like the old flesh color :P

I looked at Friend’s awesome palette, compared it to mine, moved a few colors around between my palette and his, and desaturated ALL THE THINGS.

If the palette is yours, it's ok up to some point (as we wouldn't know it unless you said it). Can you please also add the hexes?

flyguy, I think the new version is too saturated.
 tropicalsnowcone, I like your palette a lot.  it has a sense of space too it in how the desaturated tones float to your rgb colors.

Use the 'specs' link in my siggy if you need the hex codes. The font is just manual pixelling. But if you need a 5px font like that for other stuff search the links section of the gallery which has links to many. Can't recall for the life of me now but a very similar one to that starts with an 'S'.

Okay, finished the rough draft, but can't be bothered to do any mockups right now, so I'll post some test stuff later, as well as cleaning up the corner with the ramp tests and putting in the hex codes. Feels like I'm missing something- ideas? I figure I should reduce that blue ramp to at most 3 colors and replace the extra space with something more useful. Maybe pink?
