I'm not talking shit about Shake It! or anything, I just found this funny. Here's a typical colour palette:


Think of how many characters you could draw using this palette. The idea behind a good one is that it's concise and has all necessary colours to provide a consistent, clean look.

...Now let's look at Captain Syrup's palette that's easily viewable from that one piece of promo art.


I mean geez, couldn't combine at least a couple, guys? I didn't count the coin she holds since it's a seperate object. Nonetheless, you'd think those purples could merge a few times, or those many, many reds.

I dunno, man, I'm not a spokesperson for colour composition or anything, but I still somehow think there could've been less... Mess? I guess.

Clearly you don't realise Nintendo had their best man on the job for Syrup's artwork...



Seriously though. I kinda prefer Syrup's newer colour pallette anyways. Her colours in her older art didn't look like they really meshed all that well to me.

Oh yeah, I mean I don't mind her new look at all! I like the purples. But really I think in this case four shades would've sat a little better with me than eight. It's the boots at fault for that, to be precise

Yeah I getcha. I guess when it came to bringing Syrup back and all they just went a bit nuts with the colour scheme and all. Like all "GUIS HOLY HECK LOOKIE WHO WE BROUGHT BACK"

Fuck knows why they even bothered to redesign her boots; the most you see of her is stood behind a shop counter!

...Yeah, I know you see them. Or maybe she's just piloting robot legs, who knows.
