For this week's challenge I decided to revisit the seven knights challenge.  Trying to deal with the odd palettes without dithering.

I don't have the knack for getting character across in the portraits that ptoing does though.  Something to practice more!

Also I hope its okay that I'm bending the rules a bit here? By putting them all in one image, I mean.  Otherwise I would have to make seven submissions and that doesn't benefit anyone, heh.

Forgot to mention, from left to right: Royal Guard, Beast Rider, Fallen Knight, Squire, Paladin, Barbarian, Page.

 Nice, this is really good for the imagination somehow. They're some odd-looking knights, but I'm sure they're good at their jobs. :D

 The Beast Rider is my favorite of these. His design is simpler and the colors flow smoother.

Awesome shit, this

These are totally awesome, if these were in the original competition I would have voted for 3 of yours. ^^

If we somehow could convince Lackey how much we like his art so that he'd make more of it, consistently, and not dislike it or think it a failure himself, it would be awesome! Favourite.

Awesome stuff Graham. Love the different backgrounds you did for them all as well. Really good job without using dithering. Faved!

Aargh! Its removed from the challenge again :(.

Now I cant vote for it :(

Amazing use of the provided palettes. I am working on my own knight from these palettes, and I keep looking at these dumbfounded.

Loving the royal guard :D

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/1/2009 19:56
Oh gods! Please submit your beast rider. I would totally vote for it!

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 1/1/2009 18:54
Whoa! Amazing collection of portraits.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/1/2009 17:03
The beast Rider is right up my alley!
Great work!

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/1/2009 14:44
Yeah, this is nice, good job!

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/1/2009 10:48
Cool, I like the nice touch of the background patterns

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 1/1/2009 04:49
My fav's are the royal guard and the beast rider, They really have something exotic.

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 1/1/2009 01:46
oh lackey, where have you been... I have missed you so

xXHalfieXx (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 1/1/2009 01:04
Amazing portraits! I like the beast rider and the fallen knight.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 1/1/2009 00:47
Meh, just submit your favorite one separately or something. I'm quite partial to the Beast Rider myself.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 12/31/2008 22:20
you win at life...

Unfortunately, though, the rules indicate that only one submission of each chosen "knight", as each have their own separate palettes, and the piece can only contain 7 colors. This can definitely go into the gallery no problem, just won't be submitted as a challenge submission, as it's not keeping in rules of the original challenge.(that is unless you submit all 7 pieces separately, which I agree would suck major nuts, and make this piece lose it's appeal.)

sorry about the bad news, man...
