One change is on the back, the black ring can now be filled with color.

 

Dude, that's more than 5 colors ;-)

It looks like you are using 2 different colors for alternate Area 5, Area 6, Area 7 and Area 8. I didn't think you could do that. Please let me know!

Yeah you can do that, BUT only can use 5 total colors max on this coin side. This artwork is using 8, I believe.

Nope.

I can't get in either but I thought that it was because a gmail account I have that has no privileges bumps my Yahoo account that does. But I can see all of the pages except the Participants page. Weird! :)

I'm sorry, what exactly do you mean "the black ring on the back"?? B) I thought that the black areas were raised metal, gray semi-recessed and white recessed metal. If this is not the case, we need to know exactly what is raised, semi-recessed and recessed because otherwise our color choices will turn out very different that we are envisioning... :D Here is a pic. which is the "black ring to which you are referring? A, B or C? Or all of the above?

I'm confused too but I just took a look at the artwork again. He shows A as recessed now ( white) and the numbers raised (black).

Also is the area numbered 2 basically the areas numbered 6 & 8 combined? (and area 4 - 5 & 7 combined?)

If so I don't need to list colors for areas 5,6,7 & 8? 'Cause that's covered by the colors chosen for areas 2 & 4?? :D:)

Oh no Sarah I thought I had it figured out and now I'm confused again :D

I took #2 to be the same as #7 and #4 the same as #8 and didn't include 5 & 6 with those. So if 6 + 7 = 2 then I have to change my whole color scheme. And here I always thought I was really good at math too! :)

1 is blue

2 is pink

3 is white

4 is light yellow

5 is ???

6 is ???

7 is orange

8 is light purplish/pink

 

Ok now I have to ask. In the numbered artwork there is only one area labeled 5 and 6 so you should only be able to have 2 colors there but in the colored artwork that was posted there is 2 different colors for each (makes 4 total).

 

Someone else can try.

There are 8 different areas that can be color filled by 5 total color choices.

 

If you REALLY look at the art, 2&4 and 7&8 are different sizes (length) and are thus different in that sense. They can be colored all the same or all different. In other words for those 4 areas, you can use one color or up to four colors.

Now I am confused, you can only use 5 but the sample artwork shows 8. Scratching my head.

 

You can have the areas 5/6 alternate like the artwork but the line drawing doesn't show that. Can I get an email from mark or emma on what areas we can actually color.

 

Thanks

Ok so I guess we need to know which is correct - A or B

 

A

powersof10-colorguidefronta.jpg

 

B

powersof10-colorguidefrontb.jpg

 

If it's B then there is really no need for one of (2 & 4) or (7 & 8)

If it's A then one really would not need to state colors for 4, 5, 7 & 8...

I thought it was B but Marks artwork shows that 5&6 can be different on each point.

 

Not to confuse things more but if you go to the new artwork on the google site 7 and 8 are mixed up compared to how they were. 2 and 7 were in the same place and now it is 2 and 8.

 

HELP!

 

I have submitted my colors and will wait to approve mint ready artwork. That will be easier then trying to understand all these changes that we are suppose to follow in less then 2 days.

Neither one.

 

You're using 8 colors in the first and 7 colors in the second one. You can only use 5 total colors in the 8 different areas.

 

BUT, if I ignore the multiple colors in the first one and make them all the same, then you DO illustrate the 8 different areas correctly.

I see the difference in 2&4 combo and the 7&8 combo. The length is much easier to see in the color sample that CacheAddict put in his post 367 although on my monitor #2 looks red and not pink :)

Yes it is, it's the sample of all the AREAS that can be colored in. There are total of 8 areas that can be colored, however you have to limit your coloring to 5 colors... meaning some of the areas will have the same color.

 

Making sense?

There should be an updated color by number chart. There are 8 regions to be colored: 2 and 4 are different than 7 and 8, but you could color them the same just to alternate. The sample I posted showed all 8 color regions.

You are saying here that B shows the 8 color areas that we can use--correct? (She didn't color in #1 on that one) 2&4 alternates with 7&8 around the circle....

No worries tho. :D I solved the problem by sending Emma a picture of my color choices along with a color key. She understood exactly what I wanted. B)

Yeah I see that now and you also took the colors for 2,4 and extended them up into 5,6 area on the first image as well. And you can actually do that if you want. You just have to stay with using a maximum of 5 colors on the front side is all.

That works, yes. But as an FYI there is no single right way to color this front side. There are a lot of ways as long as you don't choose more that 5 total ink colors.

Just checking and not wanting to add to the confusion :) but when I submitted my colour choices Emma mentioned that the outer ring was recessed metal only so my colour choice there did not count.

 

Sorry if this as been corrected somewhere in this thread already but I was unable to find it.

Yes, and they are showing the areas you can color in. 8 are in the compass and then there is the white outer area and the outer ring. That's 10 spaces total to color in with 5 colors.

If there are 10 spaces to color why is there only 8 numbers....?

Outer ring according to other post is recessed metal and not colored....all very confusing.

 

How about putting the colored diagram up with only 5 colors depicting each space colorable...?

7 is orange

8 is light purplish/pink

 

If there is 10 spaces to color how do we tell you what number in the compass points are:

 

light blue

medium blue

bark blue

green

 

There is only 5 and 6 but you have 4 different colors. Hope I explained this well.

From what I understand, the white dashed line in the black circle is what is uncolorable. The blue circle is colorable.

 

Here are some of the versions I came up with, using 4 or 5 colors. I haven't had an approval yet, but I'm thinking these are designs that are okay based on what I've read.

You can also make each long spoke the same color, alternating between 4 colors.

 

I hope that helps a bit!

Here is another valid coloration with 5 colors. These are the colors we're using for the Santa Cruz coin, unless we hear back that they've been taken by another group first. :P

Okay, so I am confused. I sent my colors in before the conversation about the back of the coin. In the artwork, the interior ring was shown black for raised metal. How can it be colored? It looks like the artwork has changed. Is this correct?
