Work is slow today so I'm getting a head start.

Update with correct color. (and transparency cheating)

Additional "ugly" colors, for anyone who wants to use those 7 extra indices for extra ugly

(I would posit that no color is ugly in and of itself, but that's kinda the point of this challenge, isn't it?)

edit : can we get a canonical hex for that? browsers sometimes do odd things in an effort to "correct" images.

Good call. I had the wrong color apparently. So much for my colorblind assistant!

Pantone's website gives this:

thanks for the clarity :)



here's my extremely dirty WIP -- hopefully will get this one done in time. It's going to take a lot of work and experimentation to transform this scratch job into "real" pixel-art, but I'm excited by the challenge and the image.
