16 Color Winners


Announcing the winners of the 16 color palette contest.
First Place -  DawnBringer
Second Place - Manupix
Third Place - Noet
Honorable Mention - Zenobia

Congratulations to all who contributed a palette. Excellent and deserving good palettes by all.

DawnBringer 2

Winners were chosen by your Mod staff by ballot, some palettes were tested, others not. The most votes won.

Thanks to everyone for submitting such great palettes (72), we were honestly very surprised at the overall quality of the palettes and as such it was incredibly difficult to select a winner. Special mention goes out to [thUg] for making a million different (good) palettes and zch for trying to send secret messages to the mods through one of his palettes. Some palettes were for expert usage only, some seemed limitless, some just beautiful. Dr D, Satsume, Mis-BUG, ev149, Gas 13, Adarias, Jinn and a3um were special standouts.

This comp was to pick the palette for the newest PJ forum iso collaboration, which will be posted soon.

Congrats to the winners!

Can't wait to use the palette for the collab :)

Zenobia (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/11/2010 11:34

 Oooh! Very unexpected. Thanks guys!

Congrats to DawnBringer, Manupix and Noet; awesome palettes.


Edit: iso collab?!!

Congrats to all, I'm happy this DawnBringer's palette win, that was one of my fav.

For the use of palettes, of course I would be happy to see people using them for something else, I've already use 3 of the 13 I've done, so I'm quite curious to see what can be done with the 10 I'ven't used, please just send me a PM if someone use one, that I can see what it look like ;)

Mis-BUG (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 9/11/2010 09:46

@jal: sure! Credit a good job is the first step to nirvana

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/11/2010 09:10

*** gasp!!! ***

Wow, I didn't expect this, at all... Thanks mods! Congrats to all participants!

@Mis-BUG: sure, anyone can use! Have fun!

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 9/11/2010 07:33

Except me. Don't bother PMing me, I find it silly anyone should ask for my permission all because I closed my eyes and eenie meenie minie moed a few colors. Use them, they're all yours.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/11/2010 07:21

Mis-Bug, I think/assume everyone who contributed a palette gave permission to use them, even for other pixelart.

To be safe, it's best if used, to give credit to the maker. Of course PMing the person to ask is extra safe but probably not needed.

Mis-BUG (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 9/11/2010 07:17

that was really fun... and winning colours are really astonishing... can someone use them for something different from this incoming iso collaboration? 

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/11/2010 04:26

Didn't have the time to enter myself, 'grats to all the winner though!

I look forward to the challenge!

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 9/11/2010 03:18

Nice challenge. I have never worked on the palettes before, it was an interesting experience :)

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 9/11/2010 01:46

Great palettes, congrats guys.

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/11/2010 01:04

 Good job everyone. :D


I hope it's okay to use those palletes.

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/11/2010 00:42

Well done! I have lots of jealousy for your awesome medals guys 

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 9/10/2010 23:19

But congrats to the winners!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/10/2010 22:45

We'll post real soon guys. Let's give Manupix, Noet and Zenobia a chance to see their win before it gets buried with other news.

Justincrdibl (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/10/2010 21:21

Woops...guess I bet on the right horse!?  Congratz to Zenobia, Manupix & Noet.

72 palettes...wow, that's really cool. I'm glad so many people enjoy working on colors.

Ok, at least I am set...whore-wise, let's hear about the collab now!

 Congrats to the winners! Seconding Jinn(:

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/10/2010 20:35

We wanted the winners to get some fame-whoring on the front page for a bit, meanie :p

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 9/10/2010 20:32

"This comp was to pick the palette for the newest PJ forum iso collaboration, which will be posted soon."

I want it now!

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 9/10/2010 20:00

greenraven, we were going to give you a special mention, but you already know that you're special ^___^

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 9/10/2010 19:56

Yeah, I figured mine was a little too single-minded to be used 'generically'. Oh well, life's a gamble.

Congrats to the weinners.
