Palettes and Theme Generator

12th February, 2010
Easy
I had some old palettes available back in 2005, but I've made new ones to reflect the colours I tend to use nowadays. For those having trouble thinking of a theme to draw or pixel, I hope the random theme generator helps out a little.
Palettes

Here are the palettes. There are eight shades for each colour. Most people don't use this many shades on a single item, but it allows you to have lighter or darker colours within the one palette.

Try experimenting by using combinations of these palettes, such as using purple to shade pink etc.
Theme Generator
Alrighty, below are the generated themes. They are randomly picked from a list, so some may not make much sense, but it can make for some interesting ideas There's also some randomly picked palettes if you're stuck for colour ideas.
