I made this pixel for the pixelart Christmas competition on deviantart. The subject was to make a Christmas scene and I really didn't want to make Santa Claus (I Have nothing against him: p). Then I had the idea of a snowman with a small Christmas tree decorated and some candles. Of course, know that candles can stay lit but i really think their play of light gives the atmosphere of the scene

Wow, I love those colors, and the details really are sharp!  Nice!

It's very crisp.  I like your precision.

I think its beautiful.

Tinu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/19/2008 07:21
It was a gif >_<; but with some advise i manage to decrease the amount of colors.

stilñl you can go all the way down to 32. that could be the real challenge.

Tinu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/19/2008 02:21
Thank you (also for your help because i could reduce the colors to 42 with the transparence)

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/19/2008 01:31
by the way, congrats on your 1st place ;)

Tinu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/19/2008 01:10
Thank you very much for your advise. It will be very useful. I will rework this piece and replace the similar colors.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/18/2008 23:50
here's you image and its color palette. it would be more wise to manually check each color, find the similar ones and then eliminate them one by one with your favourite color replacement tool

Its not as hard as it sounds. it could even be useful in the future

I think its more about your output settings.
Make a gif version?

Tinu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/18/2008 08:56
I reduce it to 90 colors. I never made pallets on my file and because of that I often have unnecessary colors. I think i will not be able to reduce it further, because i think it will loose volume.

I'm getting a color count of 110, which is not highly indicative of PA. Try reducing the color count.
Not that I'm accusing you, or anything. It's just a little unusual.
