This is a great theme. Too bad I can't finish mine.

No cus it defeats the object of the challenge!

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/29/2007 11:33
can it just be a character or something?

wich means yes, he was being sarcastic.

even in the realm of professionals, suggestions are typically allowed.  usually you just can't outsource a significant portion of the job, which oddly enough in todays world does not include the early creative processes....

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/27/2007 16:05
You would still be making a choice to follow the other's suggestion.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 11/27/2007 14:55
what if someone suggests an idea for you to do? should you technically be disqualified? :O

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/27/2007 14:45
Using the Vista MSPaint default colors create a scene of your choice.

If you choose to make an abstract scene, then it is allowed. But it is not allowed if you don't choose to do so.

A.B. (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 11/27/2007 10:06
Are abstract scenes allowed? o.O

Solitaire (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/26/2007 21:54
.... Perfect. 8D

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 11/26/2007 19:58
mh...only 3-4 distinct values....this is going to be rough!

Noveroth (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/26/2007 19:39
XP also had a blurring resize, unless you selected the image.

Monkey 'o Doom (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 11/26/2007 18:45
Nothing good, but it has new buttons and a blurring resize, which veritably SUCKS.

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/26/2007 15:46
Oh, the palette has approved! Has Paint  had any new features, bug fixes or updates too?

soda (Level 10 President) @ 11/26/2007 12:56
Is there a way to download or get this palette?

Nevermind, got it. 

Khris (Level 1 Thug) @ 11/26/2007 12:38
The Vista palette is surprisingly decent compared to previous versions.

In which case, I actually wish we were using an older version's colors! Would've been more of a challenge.

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/26/2007 12:27

Google images just inspired me

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/26/2007 09:41
No guys, you don't have to use all the colors. Its just an exploration of the default color possibilities.

OMGFossil (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 11/26/2007 07:59
what the shit  

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/26/2007 02:16
Do you have to use all the colours?

Pnaky (Level 2 Peon) @ 11/26/2007 01:12
Thx for compare...

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/26/2007 00:56
Should be Windows 16 colour palette. Ah, the memories.

jamcob (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/26/2007 00:51
