Pixel Art Challenge: DuskTaker's Palette


DawnBringer's evil twin has devised a dastardly palette:

Can you create something with it?

Canvas Size - Max 160 x 120; either horizontal or vertical.
Colours - Exactly 16.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

Thanks to everyone that suggested the idea of a DawnBringer palette weekly challenge.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

Yes, inverted DBs palette in PS.

 Just noticed the exactly 16 rule -_-

gogglecrab (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 6/4/2013 21:25

I did a test and basically yes, It's just a negative and/or inversion of DB's.

TombReaper (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/4/2013 19:04

It seems that not everyone gets the "exactly 16" rule

I really want to know more about this palette.  Is it an inversion of a DB palette?  I find the palette here to be INCREDIBLY pleasing.  A3um's newest piece really depicts the richness and alien vibes this palette gives off.

Sometimes it depends, but it looks like for this specific challenge it says:

Colours - Exactly 16.

Grue (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/4/2013 17:26

 Noob question: Do I have to incorporate every color into my work, or just a subset?

DragonMarx (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 6/3/2013 15:34

 Found 38 good color combos :>

gogglecrab (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 6/3/2013 13:26

Yep! You got it right, I wanted to see myself so I did a little test, and that is in fact, the evil bastard's plan!

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 6/3/2013 10:01

This flu is really battling my creativity. I know I want to make a sidescroling platformer with this pallet but I can't think what. 

Nevercreature (Level 9 Vice President) @ 6/3/2013 09:22

I see a massive participation...

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 6/3/2013 09:08

 Is it DB's palette, except inverted? Or have I misinterpreted the joke :3 Fun though! 

NegaBringer. Never could beat that guy.

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 6/3/2013 06:55

I hope you're not angry DB

Oh man, a palette challenge, and I don't have anything serious to pixel with ;_;

DuskTaker isn't evil, he's just misunderstood.
