Ladies and gentlemen, an EXCELLENT hello to you again, and in honor of my 41st birthday today, I have a *rather* special present to give personally to all of you: a brand new pixel-art palette that fully encapsulates an amazing widespread spectrum in just 12 colors total.  Hence, I quite truly bring you the AAP-Micro12, which was handsomely created and hand-crafted in only a grand total of no more than 11 days.  ;)

After the release of my 128-color palette called AAP-Splendor128 (currently available for you right here!) earlier this month of May 2018, I went ahead and undertook the sheer challenge on my own in creating a more versatile palette that covered a whole spectrum of colors indeed in as VERY FEW overall colors as possible — particularly well-under 16 total.  On top of that, I had to make sure the color black was not RGB(0, 0, 0) and that the color white was not RGB(255, 255, 255).  Please, check this picture including in the schematics of all the 12 colors above on top of my description here to find out why my newest AAP-Micro12 palette is *quite* a unique beast of its own out of all the palettes that I have created so far.  I am sure that you will make some excellent quality pixel-art from it with a damn good imagination and some brilliant creativity, I gotta promise ‘ya!!! 

And best of all, you can now grab yourself a copy of my newest AAP-Micro12 palette immediately on the official LOSPEC palette-description page covering it right here as the best and recommended place to get that thing indeed, ok now?  ;)

In the meantime, please, do wish me a most happiest birthday this week as you enjoy my truly special newest 12-color palette right here as your present from me personally in honor of me turning 41 years old indeed.

Yes |||| this is a beautiful piece and we would approve it in an isolated environment. But as in all the rules, what we are afraid of is other people submitting much simpler palette images with no art at all in the future relying on this example.

Btw, Adigun, I love how you present your palettes.

Hmm, interesting issue.

I think that because this contains more pixel work in it than a lot stuff that ends up in the gallery it should be passable at least (custom fonts and all). But I would certainly prefer to see better examples and battle testing haha. So that is all; I hope my comment wasn't too redundant.

Ahhhh!!  So *that* makes sense; I can quite see your point and Dawnbringer’s now to a much, much clearer extent here.  And so, pyrometal, I thank the both of you truly on some excellent, serious pointers on how this piece and all future pixel ones of mine need to be indeed — like true, genuine, fully integrated works of real pixel-art rather instead of just color details and stats alone. 

As for this very piece about my current AAP-Micro12 palette, I will definitely be working today on updating it with some precise and quality pixel-art examples for much better clarification, so to speak, just as you two have said to me yesterday.  I will let you know in the description as soon as it is finished immediately, ok?

Thank you both so much again, Dawnbringer and pyrometal, and great to meet you two, by the way. ;)

You can just edit this current submission with the examples once you've done so, no need to make an entirely new submission.

You're currently hitting a bit of a gray area in that submitting your palette as you did is not actually contrary to any rules explicitly. The mod staff is currently discussing this to determine how we want to handle palette submissions in the future. Personally I think DBs stance helps ensure palettes are "battle tested" and offer more to look at than just the colors themselves. This is an art gallery after all!

Otherwise I was thinking your palette looks interesting and am strongly considering giving it a try!

I did not know that palettes and diagrams alone are not allowed in the gallery itself; you are absolutely right, DawnBringer.  Thank you so much for pointing that out to me, as I will be sure to add much more proper pixel-art imagery here just as you mentioned.  My apologies, as I am only learning the ropes of PixelJoint itself.  ;)

For instance, to be sure, is it alright if I go back and add some real pixel-art examples/mockups to show the real significance of how my new palette works, and then re-submit it again?  Or, should I just talk about my new palette in the PJ forums and add some pixel-art examples there?  Thank you so much in advance, as I want to be sure to follow the rules more closely here.

PJ does not allow posting of just palettes (and diagrams) in the gallery. There's not enough art here... add some imagery or make this a forum article.
