WIP: Limited Palettes

These were painted over 3 days with a limited palette in less than 4 hours each.



Palette for the Knight: Key words were - greed, sickness and envy. Internet gave me these colors...
I would have killed for some red -_-
 Matched as best as I could from my collection.
 Laid out my colors.
Sketched in about 5 min.
 Done.

Skelly keywords were: sadness, heartbreak and loneliness, internet said use these colors...
No yellow? How am I gonna make a bone color?! o_O
 Matched from my paints.
Palette and sketch in about 5 min.
 Finished.
 Two down one to go!

Speargirl words: anger, rage and death. Internet gave me these colors to work with...
Still no yellow. You really don't appreciate what you have until it's gone :(
Closest colors I had.
Sketch in 5 min.
Done!
 Group shot (and a preview of my next project)!

That was fun and challenging and a great way to put a dent in the unpainted mini pile :) Would you try this out and just use some old or crappy minis to try new things out and have some fun speed painting? Would you surrender color choice to the whims of Google? Let me know what you think in the comments and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain ;)

  1. Found that approach really intriguing! Will try it out myself on the weekend. Did you just use a color palette generator w/ hints? Or how did u turn up with these?

    1. WoW! That's great! Its fun and a little bit challenging too. I just typed in the emotion I was looking for into Google with the word "colors" after it and searched images and it gave several palettes and I just selected the first 2 that came up. You could even just use one and have less colors o_O Im not that brave... yet.
