Bored, here are some ideas for colorways
« on: Sat, 26 November 2016, 22:56:36 »
Sometimes I wonder why there aren't some more simple yet colorful options out there.  I'm a big fan of having modifiers in the same hue as the alphas but tinted or shaded. I don't know if these exact colorways exist, but to my knowledge they do not.  These are all doubleshot sphericals (DSA or SA) using Signature Plastics ABS colors.

Can't go wrong with classic brown, right?  Reverse Chocolatier?  Actually, it's the same dark brown but a different light brown than Chocolatier.

This one has potential but I messed up and left one row of legends the wrong color. 

153838-1



This is my take on Nautilus.  More cheery and unified with only 1 hue for legends (except the accented keys)

153834-2



I like the balance of green and blue in this version

153836-3



Looking for the purple banana?

I like that second one as well. What did you use to make these diagrams?

I really like the second one too but I need to fix that second row legend color.  I think this could be a successful group buy, but it needs a theme that resonates with the community.  Maybe this could be Dune??   I tried to work orange into thrndesign but it was too busy.

Ohh okay cool. I didn't know you could do colors on there. Dune sounds neat but the brown might be too dark for that theme. Earth and Sky?

Genji is with you:
153856-0


We're all soldiers now:
153866-1


Don't worry my friends. I will be your shield:
153860-2


It's high noon... Like sittin ducks
153864-3


I really just started off with that first colorway and I realized it looked like the default Genji skin.  Tried to make a few more but nothing looked quite as good.  The Mcree one is interesting, I think.

Very awesome colors! Love the brown, and the Genji! :)

Did you confirm that SP has these colors available as options on PMK?

Yes, these are all Signature Plastics colors.
