Heh, I was about to upload it, and encountered an error. :( I think my file got corrupted! WEH! I was able to salvage something though. It's missing a few layers though. :crying:

did you save it for web?what format did you use, because picture hosting places dont support all formats. and layers are notall that important in the end, the result is what matters

Nono, it was a harddrive error. It was still in its original PSD format, and lost some of the layers I had made for the final product. They arn't to bad, they were some light texturing that no one bu t me will notice. ^^;

But yeah, the final result, plus HDD damage bonus edition, is posted! :D

colour pallete is actually a term for different variations of colours. when you refere to someones picture and love the colors you say: you have awesome colour pallete (as a translation: you chose beautifull colours to put in your work) or when you pick colours with which you want to work you can call it a color pallete also.(so it really isnt much different with real traditinal color pallete :)
so this term really has nothing to do with photoshop but is refered to artist itself :)

Thank you for this! This is really a good way to learn how to color. Just learning how to color is not enough. We need to learn a lot about the colors itself. Better understanding of colours gives us confidence to experiment and use a lot more colors than the usual pallette we use in our art.
