Pixel Art Challenge: Beautiful Couché


Allegedly, opaque couché is the world's ugliest colour. Poor opaque couché :(

This week, try to cheer up this misunderstood colour by using it in an image that depicts beauty. It can be a person, an animal, an environment - anything that you find beautiful.

Thanks to DawnBringer for linking to this article about the colour (WARNING: don't click the link if you have a weak stomach).

Canvas size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Max 8. Must include the colour shown below:


Animation - Optional.
Transparency - No.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

I really ask myself when my picture finds approval but the challenge was fun :D Thought of a wolf's fur right away~

i think that when there is a colour challenge there needs to be a minimum percentage of this colour used in picture. the entries so far have not been using much of it, but *technically* it is present.

Oh yeah, seems like it, if I download it then open it it's correct.

Using PNGCrush would probably fix it.

The picture is correct. It's ye old browser-display issue that haunts you, right?

It seems like the color in the PNG is wrong, I got #4b422e from it

Hey, the colour should be 4A412A, this is the hexcode listed on the Pantone website. Make sure you're using the right colour.

I saw the color and thought tree shading.

This colour is such a serene beauty, I wonder how it glows while burning.
