A self-portrait in the style of Jinn. I think it could use a lot more tweaking, but I'm out of time. 

Golden Bell is the name of my guqin (instrument) which is named after my favorite type of cricket.

Lovely work you've done there, high five! (not that I deserve one XD)

Thank you for the suggestions! I will definitely rework this piece and upload once the voting closes :D

I think the key is to not be a slave of the palette, I use it mostly to have a base to work on, but if you ever need a color that it's not there, there's no problem to create new ones (or to mix the ones that are already there).

In this piece in particular, I think that some darker shades are missing, specially on the body. You could add some details like the even darker folds in the shirt, and/or to make the instrument cast an even darker shadow when it meets the legs.

I had a few minutes after lunch to do some quick changes, I tried to give the face a more charicature feel, and tried to make the clusters a little more bold. Hopefully it reads a little bit more like your style?

I really enjoyed working with your palette, definitely different than what I had been doing so a great way for me to learn. I was having a hard time with the highlights on the guqin, but once I used the green/gold colors, leaving the blues for the shirt, it all started to come together.

It's always great to see someone else putting your palette in use!

I wonder your thoughts on it.
