fumoffu89: SO does this mean that we are free to draw anything we want, but with the colors specified? ( 5 years and 2201 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @fumoffu89: yep ( 5 years and 2201 days ago )
jaescoe21: ya pretty much. Its really cool. I had to do this for my design class. ( 5 years and 2201 days ago )
langstrum: no mixed colors also? ( 5 years and 2201 days ago )
Lamantine: this will be difficult ! ( 5 years and 2201 days ago )
jaescoe21: yes it is. No mixed colors langstrum. But you can use the smudge tool only if they color you are using it on is on another layer. so, there should be at least 3-4 different layers if that helps. ( 5 years and 2200 days ago )
sunzet: Can you give a link with an hint of what you have in mind, cause if I don´t reallyget it. Can I do a drawing with an object coming in these colors or do I have to make the whole drawing with JUST these colors. With no shadows, no dogde etc it will come out extremly 2D? ( 5 years and 2200 days ago )
annabat: It's it allowed to use a neutral background color? Say white, black of grey? ( 5 years and 2200 days ago )
annabat: It's it allowed to use a neutral background color? Say white, black of grey? ( 5 years and 2199 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @annabat: nope ( 5 years and 2199 days ago )
iquraishi: hmmm only one entry so far.. hey jaescoe is this wht was in your mind..? do provide us with a link as sunzet asked, it would help us to understand and come up with something good... ( 5 years and 2198 days ago )
jaescoe21: sorry every one. I haven't been on in a while. here is one link It should look like this but with only 3-4 colors http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3579/3314077267_71cc6b66dc.jpg ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
jaescoe21: this is a good one http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_0SwkVpOLo6U/R5aTRx9IjdI/AAAAAAAAAPU/uVuQfWgIwEs/s320/analogous.jpg ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
iquraishi: now we can expect really cool entries.. thanks jaescoe.. ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
jaescoe21: your welcome iquraishi ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
pingenvy: Judging by the samples, there is also no blending by opacity or eraser tool? i.e. all flat color planes? ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
jaescoe21: your welcome iquraishi ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
jaescoe21: pingenvy: No opacity, it will be a different color if you do that. You can use the eraser to get what shape you want. ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
pingenvy: Thanks jaescoe. My idea would have been thrown out. ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
annabat: I thought I had the perfet thing, and the more I worked on it, the more I realised it just wasn't going to work without either black or white. I don't like these SUPER limited color schemes. ( 5 years and 2195 days ago )
IDt8r: Salute to all those brave enough and talented enough to try this contest. Like Anabat, I started a couple of entries, but yuck, didn't like the results. Good job, contestants! ( 5 years and 2195 days ago )
