Another test of the 16-color contest palette:

Feel free to use it, just let me know!

In the wip file you can see some of the early combinations for this palette (frames 4-6).

Begun a year ago as a rather realistic landscape (at least the mountains), then got away from that.

There is no snow on the mountains. Don't ask.


Update: addressed relevant crits by jal and dpixel, hopefully. Thanks guys!

Looks very much like Chinese silk paintings, unless I mix them up with something. Almost no details, but the drawn is the essence.

That's true... this palette is really great... the first row of the palette has such an interesting mood...

Thanks, very good point! I hadn't thought of it at all yet, but now I can't unsee it.

I've been a little impatient uploading this piece, it needs more work. :/

I knew this was yours from the preview. Awesome colors as usual. I'm just a little confused by the village placement in proportion to the mountains  I know the village is in the foregound on a foothill, but it still seems the mountains should be bigger.  Or maybe less contrast on the mountains to set them in the distance more.

I know there are paintings that look like this ignore my comments on the proportion as this is what I think you were going for.  :-p   dpixel <> good art critic   I very much like it though.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/8/2011 08:33

Yes, clusters :)

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/8/2011 08:02

Thanks guys!

jal: agree, I went crazier with colors in the other piece. "watch those pixel shapes": do you mean clusters? * scratches head *

Mathias: beware the power of my antique vintage old pc collection! ;P

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/7/2011 21:51

"antique post card power!"

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/7/2011 21:24

He's using his dreaded antique post card power!

This is such a wonderful palette. Had the ISO-COLLOGY collab not been an underground theme this palette could have easily won.

The scene could have used more experimental color play as the palette easily allows those pixel shapes ;)
