Dog, there are way too many colors in there for this to be worth anything


cut it down to at least 8

and use biggger rectangles >_>;;

Dude, ever seen stuff from Monsoon or Pep? Let's all agree that Monsoon has some of the most sexy dithering, well, he uses alot of colours. High contrast dithering is sooo 1980 and fugly like hell. Compare results people had on the left one compared to the right one...

Not sure I get what you're saying here, care to ellaborate?

At any rate part 2! Here we have a simple sphere, let's dither this sucker, try and draw on styles that we've seen so far here and see what we can come up with.

The results on the right are not as nice because the colours are not as good, not because it has less colours.

Quick dithergradient (done in promotion) both 2 colours, just to demostrate.


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

Ryumaru, does look good, nice, clean, seems dark for some reason, I think you brought the darker colors towards the center, where as, I brought the lighter colors into the darker ones, interesting to see how it changes the contrast of the sphere. Anyway...

Ok, heres another excercise I thought up, 3 spheres, 3 light sources, only 4 colors though on each sphere, and the goal in this one is to not only smoothly dither the 3 spheres but to connect them with dithering using the blue background behind it, though it may look ugly, i thought it would be good practice.



good luck.
