I will start working on this tonight.

[edit]

>>

My idea is to show a sumo tournament. This is a rough idea of the scene I am going for.

Update 2: More filled in and now with basic color. I think I will try for a spotlight effect on the wrestlers to make sure they stand out from the crowd. I also want to show the kanji for "sumo wrestler" on the banners if it will work that size.

@Sapphira - why wouldn't it be?

@On Walls - You may use someone else's palette if you like; but if you do, make sure you give credit to its creator. The only restrictions on colours this week are that you must use at most 32 colours and that pure red must be present.

I believe Lucas meant he was the first one to post his idea.. Pokémon. And Elk's piece is nothing else but marvellous. You'll understand when you notice his/her technique

Arthurio: I see 2 things I would like to point out for you ;)

- The rocks use 4 colors now, You can already achieve this with 3 (besides, the shading is a bit off towards the side.)
- You used pillowshading for the characters, this is a big no-no in pixelshading land. Please fix that.

Hope this can help you further.

thanks for your help
it's really not possible to use the pillowshading?i know it's taboo here but I think in this work it's not really necessary to change it (but if i must do it , i'll do it )
for the rock , i'm gonna try wiz 3 colors , but i think it will be difficult on the large rock .

I started rethinking the design because there was just too much going on in the original for this size. Now there is a greater focus on the wrestlers.



Any tips and suggestions are welcome! I should be finishing this up tomorrow.

@Arthurio: pillow-shading isn't taboo, it's just usually ugly and indication of basic misunderstandings about light.
It is equivalent of a very frontal lighting, not what you'd expect to make a nice light, and not one we see in current life except when wearing a headlamp in a dark place, and in flash photography.
If that's the effect you're after, then it's perfectly legitimate.

In your case, the guy on the right could be a good example of acceptable frontal light, but unfortunately your rocks say otherwise.

However, I'd say you have more pressing issues: anatomy, banding, and dithering (unnecessary in the rocks). The guy on the left doesn't seem to have feet and hands: is this intended?

Like i said i really liked the pose :) maybe try to add a audience in the back that wouldn't be the main attention at the same time.

@Jalonso: Thank you :) I have to say i liked the outcome too.. it's kinda bloody and funny at the same time
