255 0 255 is often referred to as pink but in actuality its over brightened magenta. It all depends on what you think pink looks like http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif Personally I'd open up Paint (if you have windows of course) and go into the color selected (click on one of the colors on the bottom twice) and find the color I like, then look at the values given.

LOL, this has to be a joke right? I mean giving extra points for just being pink in color? Whats next, extra points if you can draw in black on a black screen ? http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Oh, I agree, open up a paint program, and find the pink you want. Most all tell you the color value.

Use the palette of an image editor to find the color you want. Then be careful with the light color that you use to render the scene.

Believe it or not, there are a range of colors that actually lie outside of the abilities of an RGB color scheme. There's a diagram in my text book that demonstrates this, but I don't have it handy at the moment. I think that a really good looking pink might be one of these colors. There are some examples of reasonable pinks at the following URL, though: http://cwis.livjm.ac.uk/cwis/colors/Pink.htm

Yeah. Some of them do look more like brown. The hot pink is probably the closest to what I really consider pink. A lot of the others are more of a flesh-tone, IMO. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
