Made for a weekly challenge on Facebook. The objective was to picture a still from the show using only 4 colors.

This scene's photography, direction and ambience punched me in the face when I watched it and it still does. Bonus: my favorite character from the series is in it.

Notice how the original/reference image uses blurring, especially on the snow on the left-hand side, to give a sense of depth. Ofcourse that is impossible in the pixelart version with such a limited palette, but I see that you give a sense of depth by using the brightest palette colors only in the centre of the image to draw they eye there. I think your hand-dithering is excellent, well done Daniel

If you have any specific criticism, I would love to hear it :)

I think you captured the scene's emotion very well with the use of such a small number of colors, great job!
