Same as the EGA Faces, only with valid CGA palettes. Was good fun, but the lack of proper midtones in the palettes makes it a bit of a pain to work with.

 The robot looks like a Nitrome work.

This is so inspiring! You've done a great work trying to save the souls of those guys who made the CGA palette from eternal damnation in the lake of fire.
Also lovely psychedelic preview.
Only bit I don't get is the green thingy on top of the robot. Is it supposed to be on a side of a box?

Really cool designs.

M.E. likes everything except the little nitpicking stylish choice that everything is mirrored.

Nice dithering. I particularly like the bird and the die-headed one.

Haha, how could I not have noticed that. That's not nitpicking, that's finding a critical error. THANKS, fixed! About the colours.

There are 2 official CGA palettes, which also exist in 2 intensities each.

palette one:
black, magenta, cyan, grey (black, light magenta, light cyan, white)

palette two:
black, red, green, brown (black, light red, light green, yellow)

And then there is a palette which was meant for greyscale monitors, but if watched on a normal monitor it's coloured

black, red, cyan, grey (black, light red, light cyan, white)

Additional to these 6 base palettes you can change the black to any of the 16 cga colours (which are the same as the ega16 ones)

some more nitpicking.. does the robot at the bottom left have 5 colors?

still 8/8 and saved as faved of course =P


user
tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/31/2007 16:06

yey, awesome.. i like the alien capricorn best;

though i believed that there are only 2 cga palettes: the cyan/magenta one and the green/brown/red one which has been used in maniac mansion.. but i'm sure you can enlighten us =)

Skeletonman reminds me of Grim Fandango! Really nice, I must say. The ant is my favourite.

AdamPlays: I ran my eyefinding program, set the grid to the size of the single portraits and the slicevalue to 4 pixels. The program did the rest. I only had to add the 1 pixel line at the top and bottom.

What did you do to make the preview?

I'm waiting for the next faces with the next palette

Ta all. It's not Cthulhu, it's his lesser known brother Cgathulhu.

user

Nicely done.

Should have made Cthulhu green.

Ha ha. Love the girl in the middle and the pearhed guy. Most of them are really good, the only one that i don like is the pink-blue-withe guy on the doctor left.
