CodeWalrus Website > Contests



This contest's topic is: :3= ! To be eligible for a prize, you must make a program that creates walruses of all hues!
To be eligible, you must make a topic showing your progress, with the "[UCC4]" tag in the title.

The contest will end whenever there are enough competitors. No late entries will be accepted.

Users should be able to enter two hex values in #RRGGBB format: one for the body, and one for the eyes. On-Calculator entries in ICE/C/Assembly will be allowed to use the xlib color palette, and TI-Basic entries... well... GLHF...

Only the gray parts of the :3= should be tinted with the color for the body, and only the coloring of the eyes should be tinted for the eye color.

All pixels should be tinted relatively:
For example, the dark grays on the :3= should become darker reds than the light grays if I enter #FF0000 as the body color. Notice how the golden walrus in my signature and in the below spoiler has dark golden tones where the normal walrus has dark grays.

- number of walruses involved (we aren't kidding this time)

We are placing an emphasis on readability, so that future users can potentially learn something from your code.

Sweet! Don't forget to make a topic!

@_iPhoenix_ I have a palette of shades of gray now. Is the entered color going to replace the lightest of all these shades?
Also, what is meant by number of walrusses involved?

The color will apply an even tint to each of the shades of gray, such that a light gray will turn into a brighter version of the color, a darker gray will turn into an even darker version of the color, but black will stay black and the tusks and eyes will stay the same color. (I accomplished this task by converting to HSV and back, though I think there are easier solutions)

The eye color (by default, blue) should be individually manipulated in the same fashion.

I'm just referring to the fact that there should be just over 33.5 million possible :3= 's (If my math is correct)
