Good palettes!

The thread was fun to look over.

I'll have to try using one of them at some point.

Thank you for the honour. It was a wonderful challenge. For celebration, I decided to finish up my palette test image. Have a look at the "Eye on Thou".

 Congrats you 6 winners! I hope to see those winning palettes in future weekly challenges. That would be a treat.

Congrats to the winners! 

@Hapiel — I, good sir, take that as a challenge.

Night (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/24/2013 12:38

 Oh wow, 2nd place, I didn't even think I'll get in the "honourable mentions" sections, but lo and behold I got second place :P

Good job everybody, I think everyone who participated has learned something new from this comp, and has also furthered their experience with colours in pixel art, or art in general for that matter.(well, unless you just threw some random colours into the blank blocks, which I doubt anyone did)

Felicitaciones a los ganadores ;)

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 9/24/2013 10:34

 What I like best about this challenge is not that we now have 50 new palettes (which will mostly never be used) but the amount of discussion it evokes about colors :).

Congratulations to the winners!

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/24/2013 09:41

There were many good palettes but the top 6 was too hard to decide inbetween and it was a close call... Congrats everyone.

a3um (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 9/24/2013 07:33

Can't wait to see the secret theme. Congratz to the winners!
