ALRIGHTY THEN!

This is an art collab featuring the use of a colour scheme that contains only three colours in a drawing.
ITT: Make a drawing with only three colours!

Rules/Specifications:

Dimensions: 600x600 PIXELS
Background colour: ALMOST GOT ME THERE
Use only three colours- choose carefully!
Use any medium- just make sure it turns out nicely.
NO RUSH JOBS!

Useful tips:

Feel free to sign your piece, but I'm going to put your name on it anyway.
If you're making it in flash, send me the .swf. If you're making it in a program where image export is essential, make sure you send it as a .png (portable networks graphic).
No animated .gifs.
If it is animated, (in flash, dummy) make sure you put it in a movieclip or graphic that is labeled with your name in front (ie: beret_symbolname).
You may use a background that is a separate colour from the rest of the piece, (Ie: black) but try to make the rest stand out.

FAQ:

Q: "Hold your pandas, Jimbo! Does this mean that I can't use black and white?"
A: "Pretty much, yep."

Q: "Will this have a layout like the Mount Newground collab?"
A: "No, it will be a 'next button' collab, meaning you click a button to go to the next piece. This lets the viewer see the piece more clearly."

Q: "Can I submit photography?"
A: "Not unless it is a photograph of a piece you've made for the collab (ie: my scanner is broken).

Q: "How many pieces can I submit?"
A: "As many as you'd like. Just remember one thing: Quality over quantity!"

Submitting:

You can post your piece in this thread, or if you want more secrecy, send a download link in a Private Message to me.

Good file hosting sites are:
Myfrogbag
Mediafire
Imageshack

THE FINAL RULE:

Have fun! :D

Another thing I forgot to mention!

I'm not going to take crap into the collab. If you do a shitty job, chances are you won't get in.
Just don't be heart broken if that happens, you must have really disregarded the rules or something to get rejected.

I'll join. But first I'd like to know. . . Can we add shade/light into our pieces. Shading is just pretty much darkening the original base colour, and the same with lighting.

Just before I go rush into it, I'd like to know that first :)

Oh, this looks like fun. I'm in. Black/White/Red seems like a 'safe' choice to start with.

May i recommend COLOURlovers for choosing your colors?

shading?

Well, it looks like black/white (unless they are your base 'colors') are out. If you tinted it, you'd be adding black.
What about using gradients or transitions between the two colors? Or messing with the opacity?

Or, we could just suck it up innovate. Use the mid-tone in one place as the as the shadow on another.

I should think not, then we could also just take the three colors red green and blue, and layer them...
Well, even if we can I wont. it ruins the fun of it.
also: should we consider your starter image as a good example of what will/will not be accepted?

This is a good example of what can be submitted! :D

As for shading: You CAN shade, although don't overexaggerate the shading, so that it looks like an entirely separate colour.

Of Course it is up to you, But I strongly advise you to disallow shading (sorry JKA).
I feel it just ruins the entire point of this collab. Being creative with what you have. Making something appaling without resorting to shading and lots of different colors.
As I said, It is totally up to you, but I refuse to do it.
ill just make a few more like the duck

I agree... I think the whole thing should be 3 colors, period... no black/white extra for the back or shading, etc. ...but it's not my collab either :P

I know, not original enough

maybe even not good enough

But I had this idea and I just wanted to get it off my chest and draw it down, so I present it to you.

Hmm. I like the idea, but could you perhaps spend a little more time on it?

THIS REMINDS ME!

The picture(s) you make doesn't have to be simple.
Look at this one I made here: I used only three colours, but this is where the magic is. It doesn't have to LOOK like you used three colours. More complex drawings make people look at them closely to see if they really only used three colours.
