I was thinking about new avatar background colors, and I thought that perhaps the reason why there haven't been any threads suggesting them since I joined is because there may have been no conversational piece to get things started. I decided that the most proactive thing to do would be to design some prototypes for avatar backgrounds with new colors myself and share them on this board.

These examples are all based off of the "Swirl" design:
Black
Pink
Orange
White

Things to consider-
~ Easy to implement
~ Adds variety to avatar selection
~ These are just prototypes, can be edited
~ Many of other color options also available

Those look really nice. ^^ Way to take the initiative. I see absolutely no reason why they couldn't be implemented.

Those are all amazing, especially Black and White.

Black looks wonderful, I might take it over blue if they make a weave of it.

I support this.

Thanks!

I may actually create some other prototypes with the other designs (eg, weave) so that people can see what some of them would look like.

This is amazing. I love the white and black. I can really see me using those for most of my avatars.

These look excellent!

I agree that new colors should be added.

I like the idea of new colors too.

I'd actually like to see a dark green background color. I feel like the regular green is too light.

Thanks again.

I made a few more of the backgrounds with the colors in the first post:
Black Weave
Orange Tiger Stripes
White Pods
Pink Leopard Print

I also experimented with a darker green. Let me know what you think about it.

Unfortunately with the black, if I give it too much contrast it ends up with too much red in it. It needs a relatively equal amount of RBG to be black.

They do look really nice However, I think we're looking for more original ones (not recolours), so if you have any ideas for new patterns, that would be great.

WOw, good job! I really like the pink.

I agree. Since they've obviously found someone who can make them, they should get started on these.

"These look great, I would love to use the color black. I hope the staff use these!"
I think the black would look good with some of the white characters. Thanks.
"They are awesome. "
Thanks.
"They do look really nice  However, I think we're looking for more original ones (not recolours), so if you have any ideas for new patterns, that would be great. "
Thanks, but I think new colors are just as important. The current colors are nice, but some of the animals clash with all of the current colors; by adding orange, pink, black & white, we'd probably eliminate this problem completely. Plus, I'm going to complete the conversion of all of the current patterns to white, black, orange & pink, so I don't think there will be a problem in their implementation.
"WOw, good job! I really like the pink."
Thanks.

I do agree with you, new colours should be available. But when/if the Bell Shop ever comes out (), there will be a large selection of new backgrounds there, plus some "special" backgrounds you can buy.

I hope the Bell Shop provides us with some interesting backgrounds, but I'd still like to share these as an idea.

Toteke: I tried to make a cyan background, but I experienced some problems:
1) When I based it off of the blue background, it was way too similar to the blue background. When I tried to increase the fading, it made it unbearably bright (by this I mean about 2 or 3 times as bright as the yellow avatars).
2) When I used green, it was either too blue, too green, or too bright.

I'm experimenting with Indigo. I wanted to see if I could do anything with purple, and this seems to be about all I can do with it.

I also made some Black Pods, but I think they need more contrast.
