good question! I'll fix the rules. 16 colors + required transparency. my bad on that.

Transparency does count as one of the max 16 colors right? I don't often use it. I kind of hope it doesn't, but it's no big deal if it does.

It must be something reasonable within the context of a technologically primitive culture.

See my post in the challenge thread if there's any uncertainty.

 can he wear anything or must it be the ordinary?

actual person. a biological creature, homo sapiens sapiens.

Does it have to be like, IRL person or can it be something like a painting or a figure carved on stone representing the chief?

I have a few ideas for this that I'd love to do, but as usual I have no time :(
