Inspired by the repeated discussions about hueing and blending colors that have been created over the years, and all the awesome solutions that I've seen and read, I want to form a compendium of what's been done already, and coax new information from those that haven't explained their techniques.
Hence The King of the Hue.
Submit a (more or less) detailed description of what technique(s) you use and/or have used for hue shifting and changing texture colors.
The rules are simple. PM to me a link to an article or forum/blog post you or a someone else has written on the subject, or write something up and PM it to me. The more in-depth the better, but as long as it is clear, that's all that matters. (and please see the 'Other Rules' below)
Once we get enough entries, I'll write up a synopsis for each and put it up to a community vote.
The winning articles will get a prize (TBD, at least a tshirt but hopefully better).
I'll be accepting entries until the end of January (but I'll likely extend it into February).
Please ask any questions in this thread and get those submissions together!
-If you are not the original author of a winning article (and the original author doesn't enter), or you refer a winning author, you'll win a TShirt.
-If you refer the winning author but he enters of his own accord, you're out of luck. Make sure if you refer someone they mention they are being referred.
-If you are going to make multiple referral entries, please pick only one as eligible for a prize. If multiple people refer, the first one wins.
-Prizes are TBD. I will try to get some OK ones. For winners not in the US, we'll figure out a comparable virtual prize.
-The community will vote on the winning article(s) but prizes will be awarded at my discretion- if you have a better way to handle the issue of original and nonoriginal work being part of the same contest, please give me a holler.
