Hello to you, ladies and gentlemen, as I so splendidly welcome you to my very first BRAND-NEW palette of 2018... one that is so heavily inspired by many *quite* rarest early-1980s Japanese computer palettes — including those ones that are found on the NEC PC-88, PC-6001, Fujitsu FM-7, Sharp X1, and even the Toshiba Pasopia 7 computer, too!!!
I hereby officially name this newest palette SimpleJPC-16 (or, Simple Japanese Personal Computer 16)... all done and successfully optimized for you in a quite low color count of just 16 colors overall while preserving the rich, truest essence of those aforementioned classic Japanese computer palettes. Plus, this is now my second (2nd) 16-color palette I have ever created in my life so far, and I wanted to make it SO much better and finely-balanced in the colors overall as far as 16-color pixelart palettes go indeed.
Here, I much more carefully and quite thoroughly balanced all 16 of the colors even better... most including in the color saturation and hue as you see in the main piece of this up above to make deeply sure the colors themselves are as immensely more readable to the human eye as rather wholly possible, and that is so *critically* important, I must say!!! (^-^)v !!
As such, there are absolutely no retina-burning colors in this one, I gotta promise you for certain! Because, in order to make a limited-color palette as phenomenally wonderful as it can definitely be, you gotta indeed make all the colors rather more natural-looking through both a well-crafted, easier-to-read color saturation as well as smaller yet significant incremental changes of hue... even for just no more than 16 colors as well, too. Plus, I’d seriously do it in *just* such a way as to truly make it A LOT more suitable for pure pixel-artists to quite easily create more natural materials and environments — such as water, ice, dirt, sand, metal, granite, grass, moss, trees, wood, cherries, oranges, bananas, lemon-limes, fresh fruits, and even soft and viscously gooey substances like honey, mud, tar, melted chocolate, and so much more!!! That is how you’d really make the grade with flying colors when it comes to creating such original pixelart palettes like that, to be 100% undoubtedly honest, period. And you can do it, too... so please let this palette ever-gorgeously inspire and encourage you indeed.
There are now two (2) ways to freely snag and enjoy my SimpleJPC-16 palette. The first and most recommendedly important place to grab yourself a copy of this, is now on the official LOSPEC palette-description page covering this newest palette right here. Alternatively, you can also pick up SimpleJPC-16 by downloading it directly from me as well. Either way, I would love to see your amazing-quality pixel-art using this very palette indeed!!! ;)
And with that, do enjoy my 2018 brand-new 16-color palette as my way of honoring the resplendently amazing heritage of classic 1980s Japanese computer history!! Thank you so much for your wonderful support!!!
