This pallette isn't bad, it's close to ZX-Spectrum colors, so it will be interesting to enter compo for all Speccy fans =)

This is my contribution for the weekly challenge. It's inspired from the game Every Extend Extra, a great adictive game. Not very sad in fact

Hi all, I found this site through someone on The Palace, a program i've used for a few years and I love it. I saw everyones submissions and so far they look pretty great! It's awesome I found a website with people who do this, didn't know they exsisted other then like deviant art. Great to meet everyone!


Heres the progress, I tried making it from a picture of me in the snow my ex girlfriend took.

Perhaps the ear on the background ? Too large compared to the other.

When I saw the pallette I instinctively thought of Nightcrawler, rather unimaginatively I started this piece, I'm not particularly impressed with my own efforts on this so far and I currently think I may scrap the idea altogether.
Minimal pallettes are a nightmare, ecspecially ones as garishly bad as this one, any crits and tips on improving this pic will be greatly appreciated please!!
 
I feel, so far Gas has this in the bag without a doubt, that guy has positively unreal abillities with pixel pushing.........gotta luv him!!
