Weekly Pixel Art Challenge: #20 - Recolour
Hosted by: Logiedan
Approved by: Logiedan
Medal System activated

Theme: Summer Match 1 - The Cool Duo

We've been having a rough time regarding activity around the contests, but I think I'll make more friendly themes and challenges.

This week's task is to take any single Pokemon (other formes are allowed) and recolour them and you must use these two colours:


Cool Cobalt & Spearmint

Basically, your recolour must contain these two colours, and any other colours you'd like. Keep in mind you will be judged on your choice of colours, shading (if altered) and how every colour compliments. Also pallete requirements is 16 colours max if anyone doesn't notice.

Omits:
In some cases and themes there will be omits.
  • No omits
Main Rules:
  • One entry per person. You may update your entry until the end of the contest.
  • You can't enter if you picked the theme.
  • All work must be made from scratch (unless the current theme states otherwise).
  • No previously made work.
  • You are allowed to post WIPs (Work in Progress) but please specify which image is your final.
This Week's Rules:
  • Canvas Size: 96x96
  • Palette Requirements: 16 colours max.
  • Transparency: Optional (WILL NOT COUNT AS A COLOUR)
  • Animation: None
  • Other: N/A
Good luck. If you have any questions & concerns, feel free to send me a PM.

Here's mine:



Nothing much, just swapped the colours and fixed the outlines and white shading which doesn't look good with unsaturated colours.

For people unsure if you have 16 colours or not, paste your sprite's URL here (click these words) and it'll show how many colours your sprite uses.

Merp. I hope this is alright. 15 colors. ;m; I wanted to do more but I was unsure if you could go outside the sprite boundaries.

Here's my entry. Sorry if it's a bit late.


It feels like ages since I last did a recolour. It was definitely fun to do one again. :D

And the winners are...




1st Place - Spherical Ice


The fur looks much better with the shading, and it's much better than the original. I originally thought that highlights on the fur could 'damage' it but it worked out very well will the clean look. The colours are simple but amazing.


2nd Place - Gerokunz


The colours make this recolour clean and slick. I honestly think this is amazing and the extra shading is not needed. It has a Summer and bright look to it, and the yellow was a great touch.


3rd Place - Daniel Evans


The colours on Haxorus work exceptionally well. 3rd place wasn't easy to choose as there were other great recolours as well. But with some recolours, I mainly thought the problem was the choice of Pokemon which played a big part of this WPC.

Honourable mention(s)




EagleHawk


As a first entry, I thought it was a simple, clean and great example of what needed to be done this WPC.


Retribution


Great to see you again at this week. The shading is nice along with the highlights but again, I felt Blaziken's design made it difficult to maintain a clean and cool theme, the patterns on the feet make the sprite much darker as a whole.

Note: I'm assuming there were problems with the art program or uploading the image, so I have ignored the fact that Cool Cobalt was slightly altered in some sprites. Sprites like the Flareon and Lumineon does not contain the assigned Cool Cobalt colour, but this mishap is ignored. I triple checked. ):

Congratulations! See you all next week. And don't forget to check the WPC Medal Ledger to see previous winners.
