I was going to do a German eagle, but why just do (my most hated) feathers when I can throw flames into the mix


Can any of you pallete gurus advise on what other colours to introduce should I be looking for AA colours between yellow  and black and red and black? is the white too white? Ignore the grey this was just my background colour.



@ Mandrill thanks for the advice was going to go for a reddish brown, but didn't think of purple.

Falmes are hard and I'm not liking how it's coming out, perhaps I should have tried something more stylised? Anyhoo must crack on

@ Felch

Looking good :P

I would go with these colours if I wanted to do a bird in red and yellow against a black backround. They are good for both, AA and shading. Not that "flamy" though...

@AshCrimson, you can have 3 more colours so you could look to AA this piece, also the text could be embellished a little. the M and sharp S or whatever it's called (SS in Fussball) could be improved.

Edit: Doh just zoomed in and can see that you have got the other colours in there.

@feltch, I originally was looking at the Rancid-Indestructable cover but it got me thinking about Queens of the stone age. It really fascinates me what ideas some people on here get to these challenges. No idea how your imagination got to that piece from this pallete @mrmo

Sort of going for a metal look. He's got a panpipe-guitar. I think it needs something, but I can't figure out what.    These limited color palettes drive me nuts, because my impulse is always to add more colors for AA and such.

Final(?):


EDIT?:
Geez I can do a lot better :T What am I thinking... Are we allowed to enter more than one piece?

Super rough WIP:

I'm not so sure about the subject of the piece, I kind of want to do something fun and cartoony... But I've been saving up inspiration to draw a really neat octopus for a while. Any thoughts on it so far?

Mmmm almost there any suggestions for the background I was going to do a trail as if it was coming from the sun, but I couldn't get it to work. Any other crits warmly received.



It looks horribly overdone, a more subtle effect probably would look much better but as I don't know what that effect is, this'll have to do.

felchqueen, study flames a little more. They are not opaque, so it might be a good idea to try and create a transparent effect at the edges of the wings. Take a look at this:

Candle on Earth       candle in space
It's possible to look right through the flame, around the blue areas (the transparency and the blue are the hottest parts)!
You've got some mega-banding on the sun and the edges of the wings, and your phoenix needs form work on the chest and head. Keep working on it, it can be improved if you take care!

@Superturnip, thanks for your response, I absolutely agree, my problem is I'm unsure how to communicate this via the medium of pixels.

I think this is in part due to my uselesness with colour, as you can see I've only introduced an orange, to avoid dithering.

Also how do you give form using light and dark to an object that itself is all illuminated

I will heed your advice though and try a rework. Thank you.

Not a very strong entry, more just an experiment with wide pixels (and in ONLY using the three colors provided).
Ref:
http://hqscreen.com/wallpapers/l/1920x1080/52/sterling_archer_tv_lana_kane_1920x1080_51769.jpg

Any suggestions on improving the quality? Not super proud of it, but I am stubborn and want to keep the wide pixels and the three-color limitation.

Edit: should NOT have embedded that image, pfft

felchqueen, this is awesome! I think it's much better with the flames surrounding it like this, and a simpler body is already doing wonders. I also like the idea of having the head glow brightly, it looks good. You've got some banding around the head, but the rest is good (if rough).

EDIT: didn't need to make another post, I'll just update this one instead.

Well, I'm not sure if I wanna follow through with the octopus, because this happened:

The actual content is not that great (composition, why?!), but I think it's got potential. Any crits?

EDIT 2:

Its nice tho I wonder about splitting the mid purple behind the branch.
If you go above the branch then you can use the dark purple to AA and soften the harshest jaggies on the top of the branch.
The sun is reading just a bit wonky and possibly you could change the red of the eye to some kind of orangy shade to soften the sun's edges yet red enough for the eye.
E: oops, its a challenge color >.<


PJ has a no birds in the sky rule, k               


E2: Use the 'edit it' under the art and place this small preview file in the first panel and the actual pixel piece in the second panel then hit the resubmit.
