Pixeljoint is holding another palette competition which is open to everyone and is quite simple.
Submit your 14 color unique + original color palette.
The winning palette will be used in PJs next ISOcollab and for the first time, we are revealing the theme beforehand: Medieval. Other award winning palettes may also be used in other events and challenges.

Add a rare trophy to your profile.

Competition closes in 2 weeks, February 28, 2021. (CLOSED)

- The winning palette will be used on PJs next ISOcollab project. If you submit a palette you acknowledge that it will be used by others for the purpose of this project and credit may not be posted by participants if they submit their project piece to their gallery but you will get overall credit for it. These palettes are not to be considered art so please do not submit to your galleries. Its best to assume that others may use your palette beyond this project. By entering you are giving permission to others to use.


- Win a spiffy trophy + points which are rare and will look great in your profile.
+1000 Pts+500 Pts +250 Pts+100 Pts-HM*

* multiple honorable mentions may be awarded.

- Judges are your PJ Mods and select invited PJ members.

- Palettes will be judged on the basis of how it would work on the project theme, which is medieval. Multi-purpose palettes always have a better chance.

- You may enter more than once but quality is better than quantity.

- Posting works using your palette on this thread is a very good way to show how your palette is supposed to work. You can post your original or existing works or other people's work, even pieces from old ISO collabs recolored by your palette.

- A unique + original palette is the goal but a well balanced palette is very important even if your entry is monochromatic.

- Use this template for your submission.


You must name the HEX values and NO black - 000000 or white - FFFFFF

Here's mine! I call it Knight14. As always I don't consider myself a goddess with colors, but I gave it my darnedest best. And I got a super rough and scratchy image as a quick test. Lol

Hey everyone!

I'm so glad to finally enter one of these contests since color palettes has been an obsession of mine for so long!

So, after a ton of tweaking and different iterations here's my entry, which i called Shire-14.


For this one i tried to make it as versatile as possible, while keeping the theme in mind and trying to offer the necessary grays and browns that i think are essential for the medieval setting.

So first choices were a midtone brown (wood, wildlife, dirt, etc) and a multi-purpose dark brownish gray (to shade everything brown, but also armor, rocks, castle walls - aka, everything gray) and a lighter gray (as the go to color for rocks, armor, etc). And also a really dark blue (for your darkest desires ) and purple (for multi-purpose shading) as the darkest tones.

Onto the water and grass with two shades of green and two more of blue, and those were the base colors for the theme.

Then came a long process of iteration and trial an error to find the colors for the remaining spots.

In the end, i settled with:
- two midtone oranges: a red-ish one for blood and fire and whatnot; and a very versatile midtone yellowish orange that serves as a complement to a few of the others. For instance, it can be the lighter tone for wood texturing, the midtone for the fire, and the mid/dark tone for sand or gold.
- a bright yellow (fire, sand and highlights);
- a light yellowish beige (skin tones, clothing...)
- a very bright (almost white) beige (for highlighting, snow, and pretty much everything white).

While tweaking, i tried to make sure all colors worked well with one of the ISOCollabs that i think had the most similar elements to the medieval theme: the PrehISOria collab.
So, here's the Shire-14 applied to it:


This collab serves as a great example of how well the palette can portray most needed textures (rocks, grass, wood, wildlife, blood and fire and even sand and snow).

Later on, as a stress test, i decided to apply it to some of vierbit's works:


Although a lot of details got "lost in translation" (since vierbit used WAY more than 14 colors on each of these) i think the palette held itself really well considering the color count.

Also tested it on one of fool's castles (because medieval) and came to the same conclusion:


Again, a lot of details had to be sacrificed, but it still looks great for a 14 color drawing.

So that's it! Hope you like it and  sorry for the huge images!

~edited: changed description because *bad english*.

*Warning: Long Post

Here is my palette, I call it MDVL14


here is the DB Analyzer


here is a few (but not all) meaningful colour combinations




I chose these colours because I wanted to be able to cover most essential textures for a medieval world such as stone, wood, grass, water, sand, dirt and also be able to cover various materials like iron/steel, bronze, gold, mythril. I also felt it was important to be able to cover things such as potions, magic, alternative lighting, fire, scales.
All things considered - the palette is skewed towards brown and grays especially in the warmer colours, although it is contrasted by blues and greens. All colours play combined roles in many of the textures.

here is an armour test on a few of Cyangmou's sprites
this test shows some ways to accomplish iron/steel, bronze, gold, and mythril style


here is the palette applied to a couple of previous ISOcollabs, to test how well it can adapt to the textures

Figured I'd give this a go.

I'm gonna call it 'Trebuchet'


I thought a dark palette would suit the medieval theme, but I also wanted it to be colorful and high contrast.

Heres a little mockup I made to show different materials and lighting



And here is a Dawnbringer analysis of the palette:

I made a palette and tested it out a little too. Quite happy with it! It's called 'Dungeon14'.
I tried to make it as versatile as possible. It's inspired by old manuscripts and art of the likes of Hieronymus Bosch.

I cleaned up your palette. I don't know if all the colors are correct, I took the colors as they appeared in the screenshot, not as the codes were.
