YOU ARE STANDING AT THE END OF A ROAD BEFORE A SMALL BRICK BUILDING.
AROUND YOU IS A FOREST. A SMALL STREAM FLOWS OUT OF THE BUILDING AND
DOWN A GULLY.

A new style for me!  It was definitely a challenge, but it was pretty fun. <3

About the color count...  I gave up and just started using them as I needed them and didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it.  In the past I've found myself worrying about it to the point that I don't finish pieces and don't submit things.  Until I get better I'll probably not be super careful with color counts. ^_^'

Thank you Frost; the deer was one of my favorite things as well. : )

Thank you Jabber!  It's too bad I'm not skilled enough to do something so grand.

 i like the weird color selection. I'd get pretty excited over an oldschool RPG that looked like this.

Thank you T and San!

I still have that city slum palette project hanging around; I might work on it if I finish my entry for this week early.  That does sound pretty fun. ^_^  My lack of art related color theory knowledge makes building my own palette very trying.  I think I agree with your closing argument.  Thank you for taking the time to help me!

I'd suggest to try practicing with the worst palettes around. It's a lot of fun too! Try the unportraitable / unpalettable challenges, other older palette challenges, and the Pixelation challenges too, including this one.

Small, random palettes force you to be bold and creative in the use of color without worrying too much, since there is no 'perfection' or 'realism' to be attained. At least it worked for me.

I may.  I currently work with a mix of palettes, some from challenges, one from a particular piece I like, and one by an artist I like that's really big.  It's making good use of the colors that makes me worry so much I put off working on a piece.  At the very least I'll look at them. ^_^

Thank you both by the way! <3

Lovely! Voted ^_^

Until I get better I'll probably not be super careful with color counts.
What if it's the other way around? This piece would probably improve from a well chosen 20 color palette. Try some from the palette comp?
