If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from

I will be taking suggestions for this challenge but only until June 27th or so since I’m a busy university student! Send me a number and a character but please keep in mind:

  • Pokemon only! Like I said, busy uni student, don’t have the most time in the world and this is just for fun c: (I’m also not that familiar with some fandoms and I just want to keep it simple and to something I’m more familiar with)
  • 1 or 2 suggestions per person
  • This isn’t first come first serve so I’ll be picking the suggestions I really like!
  • I’ve already done Arcanine, Magikarp, Lucario, and Espeon so other pokemon would be fantastic!

I’ll be drawing these during my study breaks so I’ll hopefully be able to finish at least 6 suggestions? Maybe more? We’ll see!

Send your suggestions here c:

Please feel free to delete all of my comments if you’re planning on reblogging this to attempt the challenge! All of the info is in the image and I’m just making some additional notes. Thank you!

pencilcat:

Are you tired of feeling like your art just isn’t improving? Do you want to do a 30-day challenge that’s actually useful? Welcome to 30 Days of Improvement Hell. >:D

I made this because I’ve been feeling super ‘blah’ about my art these days, and I needed something to kick-start myself. Who wants to do this with me!? Start now or whenever you can (now you procrastinators!). Challenge yourself and have fun at the same time!

Tag your posts with #Improvement Hell so everyone can follow along and see each other’s awesome artwork. I may even create a blog and reblog them! :D
