With respect to colors we wanted to see some Shu-Ki’s share color palettes, but we also wanted to see some standout with rarer or unique colors. We tried to strike a balance by creating a limited palette of 30 ACCENT COLORS that we then sorted into 3 tiers.

With respect to accent colors, we followed the same general structure as with the primary colors, although we ended up doubling the amount of available color options.

RARE options in the PRIMARY COLOR category became the COMMON options in the accent. S TIER primary options formed the RARE tier for the accents. And 16 new colors were added for the Accent S TIER.

We essentially accepted that black and white could be used in a limited fashion as accents for all Shu-Ki’s, in addition to the selected accent colors, however we tried to constrain that, and whenever black or white were selected as S Tier accents we endeavored to integrate them much more predominantly.

The randomized selection of a Shu-Ki’s accent color was a two-step process that began with randomly determining its tier, and then randomly selecting a color within that tier.

Shu-Ki’s had a 65% chance to draw the COMMON tier, a 25% chance to draw the RARE tier, only a 10% chance to draw the S TIER, and less than a 1% chance of being a WILDCARD.

We created the tier system in order to relay and retain the importance (or projected rarity) of some colors, in the event those colors turned out to be less rare after the selection process due to probability anomalies.

As with the portrait composition, the artist’s use of colors was not bound by any strict rules or demarcations. Obviously the artist tried to honor the colors selected as best as possible, but in some places the lines slightly blur, and exceptions can be detected.

In some cases the line between “primary” and “accent” gets fuzzy, in others, black and/or white are used as further accents even if not selected. Again, decisions were ultimately made to serve the art without egregiously upsetting the overarching program.
