:bulletblue: First Place:

Pikmin in Silhouette by Sharulia by Sharulia

What the judges were saying: We love this one's use of the three colors. The black silhouettes with the brown background are very pleasing to the eye. The small amount of Turquoise for Olimar's helmet is an amazing touch, making this a sure-fire winner!


:bulletblue: Second Place:

Four friends by CorvusRone by CorvusRone

What the judges were saying: The four friends from Earthbound are marvelously rendered in our three colors! The poster-esque quality made this one jump out at the judges. The artist's style works great with the characters, ans should be something every Earthbound fan will enjoy.


:bulletblue: Third Place:

Contest: Run, Kirby, run by Super100Miki by: Super100Miki

What the judges were saying: The vertical composition and the seamless blending of our three colors are amazing! This one is very fun to look at as well! Be sure to look at it in full-view!

Thanks to all who participated in our three-color-challenge! We hope to see you all for the next one! :D



bulletblue: Concept :painter:

Three Color Challenge!




The colors you will work with are: Black, turquoise, and brown!
You're NOT allowed to use any other colors, and all three MUST be used in your image.

The secret way in which we chose brown was whichever color got the least votes. : )

You have to use all three colors in the same picture.
For black, you can only use pure black. No shades of gray.
For turquoise and brown, you may use whatever shade you like. You can even use multiple shades of these two colors as you please.

Here are some examples of shades of turquoise and brown. You don't have to use the ones I put together. These are just examples.




- We're not going to be too persnickety with "accidents". Like, if you're blending your colors and you accidentally get a small amount of purple or red or something, we're not going to kick you out.

- BLUE IS NOT TURQUOISE.

- White is not allowed. Not even in the eyes. If you use white, you will be docked points and not chosen by the judges.

- You can draw 3rd party characters for this like Snake and Sonic.

- No porn! No nipples, no huge ass shots, no underwear shots, no fetishes, all women (and men) must be drawn with respect!

- If there are more than twenty entries for this contest, there will be a judges section. Keep in mind if there is a judges section, I will give you extra points for choosing characters that are not from Super Mario, the Legend of Zelda, or Pokemon.

- You're allowed two entries.

- When you're done with your entries, submit them to our Contest 14 - Three Color Challenge folder in the group gallery.

- Please mention the contest in your description. Not because we need the advertising, but because people often accidentally submit to the folder which confuses the founders. We want to know if you meant to submit there!

- You cannot submit old artwork. It must be new, having been created AFTER March 3rd, 2013.

- Crossovers are allowed.

- No fan pairings. Only canon pairings allowed.

Quick question and the "no nipples" rule. What if it's a character from Punch-Out!! because most, if not all of the characters are shirtless?
