You know, I've been thinking hard how to top my last few blends, and I have some great ideas, but it occurs to me I've been thinking too hard. I want to make some simple ones just to remind myself how pretty. I'm going to make a couple sampled from the same picture source while I'm doing my laundry.
First palette left to right diagonal:
ReconditeSamples
Second palette, different colors from the outside edges. Third palette, just different colors from the blend.

That really is a beautiful one, bezzalopoly. Deserves some extra staring. Hey, it's only 9 blocks wide! interesting.

Breeding Block Blends:
Here is today's experiment. I started by making a block blend with my RC palette.
Picked the colors other than the blended brown, because I figured brown would show up in the red+dark cross.

Then I blended the colors of the corners with this other Block Blend, using the Meyer Color Blender, as in the Palette Blend Game, and made a new Block Blend with the results (I think I got the red corner wrong... the Meyer blender glitches sometimes. When I checked with pourpre.com, I got a different color. But hey, it's close...):

Some neutral colors from this last Block (a 4 color diagonal), and the corner blue, which I liked.

Okay, here's a different one... these are all real palettes, although the block blend image is fake (was faster to make that way). It's not a block blend in the strict sense, just a progression.
I took the top palette, which is a blend of two palettes, and bred with another palette to make palette2 of this block. I blended palette 2 with another similar palette to make palette 3, etc. So each row is the result of blending a different palette with the row before.

How to Play this Game in case you haven't tried it yet.
The RandomComboGame is kind of like the 2 Above, 3 Below, or 3 Above 2 Below games, only with surprise elements. It's like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get. Basically,
First, open a basic palette maker to find your random color. You must use the unknown color in the palette maker. No idea what that color is until you do.
Next, choose a known palette, from a group of ones on each RandomComboGame forum page. Choose two colors to go with your random color, and paste in the hex numbers.
•That leaves two blank spots in your new palette.
•From the menu on top of every Colourlovers page, look for Browse, and choose Palettes from the drop down option. From page one, choose a palette that has two colors to finish your RandomCombo Palette. These palettes were made moments before by people all over the world, so who knows what your next colors will be? Both your submitted palette, and the one you chose from the Browse palettes page one enter the palette pool of possible starter palettes. I will edit them in.
•When you post your completed palette tell us how you got there!
Tag your palette RandomComboGame, to enter the tag pool hall of fame!
•When this forum page wraps to a new page, we start a new palette pool, so we are not using the same ones over and over again.
•Because of the way this game works, there are no turns, so you do not have to reserve a post, or wait to try it!
