Well, I do have the (large) project I am working on now to keep me busy for a while, but I have always wanted to do the 'Your Sanctuary' bosses from EarthBound. Problem is the color palette is kinda strange and its hard for me to distinguish what color would turn into what...so, anyone have any advice?

(Picture for reference)

Thank you, Bantaro, very much. I can't wait to do them and will be sure to show them off as soon as they are finished. Now, if only someone could help, I'd be well on my way.

I don't think these would be too hard to recolor. Do you work with Perler or Hama beads? Would you be willing to add some PhotoPearls to the mix? I have some suggestions, but need to know what your limitations are.

I've only worked with Perler before, but ordering Hama wouldn't be a problem really...and I've never heard of PhotoPearls. For the purposes of this conversation, Dear Saturnine13, assume that I have no limitations, please. I thank you in advance for any help you might give.

I'd be happy to help! Figuring out which colors work together is perhaps my favorite part of making beads sprites. There's a topic for PhotoPearls over here.

Is there one boss in particular giving you trouble, or just certain shades of color? Right off the bat, I'd recommend Hama Turquoise for the teal, PhotoPearls Khaki for the olive-y grey, PhotoPearls 27 Brown, and maybe Perler Hot Coral and Hama Claret for Carbon Dog.

I'm confined to my bed and I'm on serious pain medication (just had my wisdom teeth removed) so I can't dig out my beads and give you more specific advice today. With luck I'll be feeling better tomorrow, and I hope some others will chime in and give some more advice. There's a dozen different ways to color these guys, I'm sure.

When I use that link, I get some pretty weird setups for the one I'm working on. I would definitely still eye the colors as well.

I agree. I've seen a lot of clever ways to have the colors picked for you, between custom palettes in Photoshop and programs like Perler Pal, but I gotta say, I still think it looks better (and more unique to the artist) with a hand-picked re-coloring. That's just my preference.

I do hope you are feeling better today, and thank you so much for the advice. It really isn't one boss in particular, just all of them I guess...to me it just seems that there are a bunch of funky shades (Titanic Ant for example, I don't know what those greenish-brown ones are or would turn to)....your advice is very helpful and I am quite thankful that you offered it.

Quite a nice project you got there, and I can't way to see the final product Smile

For choosing your color, I don't think you should worry about that. I'am sure you'll choose the color wisely and it will look great.

And by the way at what size you will do it?

Doc Oc has a really good recoloring tutorial he posted somewhere. I am recoloring some right now, and one thing I found it dont just change all of one color to all of another. Seems easier to work in sections, and just play with it till it feels right.
