Why, Pumpkin, Why by Ichitoko Why, Pumpkin, Why by Ichitoko
You know the part of your brain that makes decisions and tells you, "Hey, maybe you shouldn't do that. This is a bad idea. You'll regret this in the morning." Yeah, that part? I'm pretty sure that part of my brain decided to take a vacation or let someone else take the wheel for a while.

This pumpkin was going PRETTY well, until at some point I had pixeled a nose smack dab in the center (I'm sure this is where my brain decided that it wanted no part of this) and then it sort of spiraled downward from there. And then I go and google pumpkins because I wasn't sure what their leaves looked like, and something like this pops up in the results. Is when I decide that whatever direction my pumpkin is going is PERFECTLY acceptable. Then I go an add a crater or two because obviously, this pumpkin isn't terrible enough.

If I have scarred you for life or ruined pumpkins for you forever, I APOLOGIZE. I am REMORSEFUL. But I don't REALLY regret what I've done.

I did this for =Wooded-Wolf's pumpkin tribute project: [link]
Palette was also provided by him.

XD! Thank youuu~ I had such a hard time trying to make them work. lKDSJfdlskjfs I threw out half t he palette and just decided to stick with the bright colors because then I wouldn't have to blend them as much. XD

Someone told me that I hadn't made good use of the palette and that I should be using the greens to shade the oranges... >< but I don't understand how to use more than one ramp at a time ; -; I did try but it just looked weird...

Hmm, I imagine a rotting pumpkin or one that's not yet ripe if you used the greens to shade. I think it probably takes practice using adventurous palettes like the one for this collab to get a feel for how the colors might work together? At least with this one, the colors were arranged in a way that if you wanted to jump shades, there were enough intermediary colors for you to go there.

I MUST INVESTIGATE THIS COMMENT.

It's not a comment on dA, it was another site >< But I don't think they were wrong just I don't know where to go from here to push my understanding further >.>

Perhaps could ask them to elaborate?
And one way to push your understanding further might be to just grab a "weird" palette and play with it to see what happens. I love the palettes people come up with for the collabs on PJ, so maybe you could start there?
