Hexquisite Corpse Suggestion Thread

on: June 12, 2009, 05:35:54 pm
Seeing as the Hexquisite Corpse Collab is almost over and considering that it seemed to have been very well recieved I plan to run HCCs indefinitly as long as people seem to enjoy them and as long as I have some time to organise the. Luckily they do not require as much maintenance as the Isocollab :)

So this is where you guys and gals come in.

I want you to suggest themes and palettes for future HCCs.

The palettes should be either 16 or 32 colours, the themes can be anything really.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I'd like to see if Arne's 8-color palette could be done. It'd be more challenging to mix colors, but I'd suspect it'd be way easier to make transitions between adjacent tiles since there is a more limited palette. This could make fairly some funky art as a result.

Animated Hexquisite Corpse! All rules stays the same (palette, borders), but with 2 (or 4 frames). Maybe make the collab template a bit smaller (edit: I don't mean the actual tile size, but the total amount of tiles) for the regular, theme based activities?

I have chatted with Rawsushi (monsoon2d) about animated ones some days ago. 2 frames would be silly. I think i would go for something like 6 frames.

Also, I already made templates for corpses with 61 and 37 tiles :)

EDIT: I realized my post was more fitting to the Activity suggestion thread  :o :-X

THEMES YOU SAY?

how about......satelite views....like a wacky Google Maps  :o

or, say  ::) a rampage.....the chaos that would ensue if doomsday was announced   :crazy: (some say 2012 will be it....with all the hype SOMETHINGs bound to happen now)

I second that steampunk would be cool. Or (Greek/Norse/etc.) mythology.
I think themes like 'nature' or 'technology' would be too broad. It needs to be more specific to keep it interesting, if you want to run these indefinitely.
