Challenge: make a 16 color palette and 3 different images, each with a max of 10 colors (from the book Learning Pixel Art, by Mark Hervieux). I will post the other ones latter.

The work was stronly based on this image, from manga One Piece:

I tried to test different concepts and basic pixel art techniques.

I will try to find a way to link to the palette used (if anyone knows a good way to do it, please be my guest and share with me :) ).

Edit: hopefully I id some improvements on the water, even though I am really not satisfied with it.

Any and all feedbak is welcome.

Thank you very much! And I love Hokusai's art, your comment made my day!

I really like this! First thing that comes to mind is Hokusai. I like the pattern in the sky.

Thank you for your kind words! I intend to edit the picture and improve the water as soon as I get a new computer and a stable internet connection. Hope to get a feedback whem that is done :)

Thank you very much for your comment! About the color of the highligths, I have a couple of other colors in the palette that I will experiment with. I will also try my best to improve the water, but I am not sure how much my inexperience will let me do so :P Could you explain to me what you meant about the sky? Was it that the sky looked more like a background and less like a sky? Would you say that the colors I picked were partly responsible for it?

Nice piece, but I would change the color pallete a little bit. The highlights should be more yellowish than greenish. Also the water is consisted of too many messy lines, in my opinion the clusters would work better. And at last change the texuture of the sky as it looks too solid.  But that's only my opinion, you can try it out and experiment. Keep it up :)
