Here's my submission for the 512 challenge- I decided to go with 128x128 and 4 colors to pixel the legendary hero Big Boss from the Metal Gear series. The color limitation made this really difficult but I feel like I learned a thing or two in the process. Here's a link to the original piece, I desaturated it and adjusted values to help myself stay within the challenge limitations:

Thank you! Can't believe that slipped my mind, good catch! I'll be sure to add that link under the description as well, it should also be noted that I also adjusted the value levels in the original to simplify shadows which aided greatly in isolating light while remaining within the color count restriction. Thanks again the feedback Mandrill! :)
