I enjoyed this so much. Thanks for the good theme. I'm not very good at choosing colors even (I think a bit like everyone at the beginning). I have not used any references, but I wanted to convey a gloomy environment, desert, where the church and insquisition were prevailing. I started working on this palette (in fact I have no idea about palettes):






That it had reminiscent of the work of Kentaro Miura, Berserk. But I realized that even the colors do not work well, everything seemed a gradient of a gradient. I started to read, color great forum posts, and I opted for using palette DB32. As the color change was made retrospectively and not I started working with these colors, it may have affected the final result. But even so, I am quite satisfied with the result:




It is difficult to change all colors back and fit well. I should have started from the beginning to use this palette. I lost atmosphere, but I won in contrast, shape and definition. Final result:

Ha ha yea man I hope you do make a game out of it.  I think it looks really cool.  That's really great that you can do such good art and program too.  I hope to get there one day but I have a lot of learning to do in both art and programming,but I'd like to make some games I'm proud of one day.

Thanks for your comment. You have defined better than me what I wanted to create. Is exactly that. I'm a programmer and I can program videogames too, and this is so exciting because this is just what I want to create, a world like that and a game like this. So, read something like your comment, is the best I can read. haha cheer!!

Wow I think this one is really cool.  It reminds me of like a mario overworld map in function, but instead of the happy environment, it conveys an apocolyptic environment that I would love to explore in a game.
