But now to this weeks Challenge...

This weeks theme is the Color Challenge:

The Color Challenge works like this:

I give you a colorsheme, and you design a Character based on this sheme.
You can darken/lighten the colors for shading and highlighting.
Extra colors
You are additionally allowed to use black for outlines and details,
some kind of red for the inner mouth and tounge and white for eyeballs and teeth.

It´s as easy as it sounds! ;)

Here are some examples from our 1st Color Challenge:
