Don't know if I'll finish this.

Gotta use all 16 colors, eh?

This seems as if it’ll serve as a big challenge for someone of my general skill level.

I think I’ll have a little fun with this one, even if I don’t finish anything in time. :)

The less you know the less colors you should use so this is PERFECT for you ;)

I tend to use limited palettes/color limits already BECAUSE of my skill level. I don't have a whole lot of experience with making any larger pieces, so I stick with small sizes and limited colors.

My issues come with putting together palettes, figuring out the best combinations of colors, and generally coming up with ideas (without looking at others' works first).

So this will challenge me greatly, and I welcome the challenge. :)

I was kinda kidding.
Using the least amount of colors and the smallest canvas you can get away within any project is for all levels and always the way to go. We all have the same problems with colors and stuff. Its a process and its just about experimenting and trying new things without fear. Seeing how others solve problems saves us time and should be done regardless of experience. Nothing beats looking at others work to improve our own.

Quick question: someone made a crossdither chart for the DB32 palette, so can we get a similar chart for this palette?

a3um@ That looks amazing... I, myself, can't find anything wrong with it. Except I think I kinda went for the same theme :P

Not exactly a WIP, so it means I'm done with my piece. But still... Any tips/advice for the future?

Attack of the big gulp!

Not sure what he'll be eating yet, most likely a ship, But anyway this is what I've got so far!

PROGRESS

Not sure if I'll finish it in time, having trouble choosing the fishes color, and figuring out how to use the others...

Yeah, it started of as just a wizard going to cast a spell, but that wasn't going so well... Now it's a wizard who enjoys long walks on the beach.

I guess wizards want to go on dates.

Done. The palette seemed difficult at first, but it's quite interesting actually.

Got the idea while watching the music video.
Don't know if I will be able to finish or smuggle in ALL these colors. But a fun challenge anyway.
@Night
Wow, did you trade your soul to the devil? Awesome work!

edit: I can't seem to make the link work the way I want for whatever reason, I should probably get some sleep.

Between bad weather and a lack of inspiration, I couldn’t get anything done this week. Looking forward to voting for this challenge, though. :)
