This is my favorite one... maybe I'll make up LL03 and LL04, too.

Okay, I did:

Another quickie, now that I've gotten the technique of the fake palettes. I took these colors from a .jpg in my collection very zoomed in.

I'm glad someone figured this out, I had been messing around with a block larger than 5x5 and couldn't quite get it right :)

Well, color me amazed and call me Crayola. I never would have thought of anything like this. Awesome work, Edith!

Thanks so much, sec9586, Heather ^_^
I'm sure it's all that graph paper in my background.

Okay! I've cut the basic block blend process down to 10 minutes or less... of course, I'm using a little browser addon (for Firefox) called Rainbow that uses a color picker that copies the color you click as you mouse over your browser window. But if you want to choose pictures from a photo, you could use Photocopa for the same result. I got Rainbow from one of our absent Anna's addon bookmark lists as I was looking over the web for sign of her. Would you guys like me to write a tutorial for the fake palette process? I can do that for the bigger ones, too.

These two blends take their colors from the same source. It's some very close-up sampled pixels of a .jpg I made from a screen dump. Then I ran the .jpg through http://pixlr.com/o-matic/ to shift the colors, that was fun ^_^

Thanks so much ^_^ I had a lot of fun with this one!
Here's my source for the colors... I'm not sure it uploaded with the original colors. I'm often disappointed with sampling from uploaded photos, they tend to be a little duller. That's why I like to sample from pictures in my computer that I've opened with my browser software instead, using an addon colorpicker.

There's still a lot of room to experiment with this one.

Here's the next one I'm going to try, I ran it through pixlromatic also.

Either way, it's AMAZING and I LOVE it! ^^

A little experiment based on Gab's brilliant blend.
I'm not sure whether I like it or not.
