Who'd have guessed this challenge would turn out so epic. It was not easy or pleasant to whittle it down to 3.

I think this is one of my favorite challenges on this site since I joined. The amount of variety and skill with all of these entries so far is mind-blowing, especially considering we're all using the same 4 colors.

I posted an entry but it doesn't show up in the list for Weekly Challenge.  Do I need to re-upload it or was there some approval process I didn't make the cut for?

I'm new and have no idea how to submit my entry, anyone help?

Skurra (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/14/2015 10:30

Sounds fun( and hard). I'll try to participate, this palette seems pretty interesting; makes me think of birds. :P

Really nice to see a 4 colour challenge again, I'm in. :)

Dokitsu (Level 9 PS1) @ 4/14/2015 05:55

I think no, this make it harder.
Only having this color palette the WC gets hardly to finish with a good piece, so no one can handle this kind of color convination, but I think the WC's are just for fun and learn.

Unrestricted canvas size will make for hard competition. The colors though - they are abusable.

Daimoth (Level 3 Stalker) @ 4/13/2015 20:12

No canvass restriction, bub. Which means you can scale your design up and get new shades via dithering.

Daimoth (Level 3 Stalker) @ 4/13/2015 19:53

Inorite. Why are palette-based challenges so much fun? It seriously does not matter how horrific the palette is (or surprisingly not-so-horrific, in this case), by the end of it you're having a blast.

Silverfur04 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/13/2015 16:28

This will be my first contest! The pallette looks pretty cool too! :D

Dokitsu (Level 9 PS1) @ 4/13/2015 15:50

I know WC with color palettes are amazing, but geez this one looks restricted a lot, even is greatly challengeing.

7heSama (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/13/2015 13:34

I think I tend to like the results of palette competitions best

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/13/2015 08:06

Eff, a palette challenge at last, only just the week I'm having lotsa work again =(

TAG-Nadia (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/13/2015 07:54

This may have to be my first challenge I attempt on this site. One thing I haven't done yet is work with an extemely limited palette, and this one is gorgeous :D 

Jackster (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/13/2015 05:18

The first thing that comes to mind is "sunset beach".

Drazile (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 4/13/2015 02:03

A surprisingly nice palette!
