@Jalonso, hmm may be I shold give you a list of pictures I would like to work on and then you tell me the number of colors I am allowed to use? Or may be even give me the palettes? r - oh, even better! - do the pictures instead of me. Yeah, that would b the right thing to do of course, a  picture deserves apprciation only if it has the right color count according to you. *bows*

I totally respect your work and many pixel art techniques of shading used by people. Therefore I would demand a tiny little bunch of respect for what I do. A tiiiiny one.

16 colors max for this, yup.

I have no idea why everyone is so concerned about color count. =/

Anyway, I love it. A very unique avatar. =]

I am in love with this compositionally, but I'm stuck on the colour count.  Though it may not be your personal style to use a limited palette, you might think of it as a fun challenge to try to bring this down to, say, 15 colours.

hmm this is my really clock : )fun

just so you know, I played around with your image and was able to go down to 35 colours without making it noticeable for the eye... :/
Anyway, I love what you've done and I honestly don't care about how many colours you use *laughs* I'm pretty good myself to use "too" many colours :P Like I said, really like it. And the colours (metal and teal) are almost your trademark XD

Well I do not ned that many of them, of course. On the other side I had no need to limit myself in colors for this piece. So why picking at me for this matter?

Hmm. I thought pixel art was more about making AA manualy and working with a minimalistic software/hardware to draw things... and color count depends on what you aim. IF you want to be able to code your graphics with only one byte available, like for old video games,  you should surely limit the colors a lot. But that has nothing to do with what I want 0__o

You do not -need- that many colours though. You can make things smooth w/o using a bajillion colours. Part of Pixel art is about learning how to use a limited palette :).

I use phtoshop color picker to choose colors, and it is amaizingly weird that someone should be surprised that there'a a wide range of colors that match, I mean, what's weird with that? You know how to pick colors when you know how to draw, nay?

There's a about 50 colors in this piece yes -  about 25 for the blue-green thingie, and 7-10 for gold, and about three or four more for some highlights. I don't use any predefinite palette I just pick them randomly as I go on. Doh many colros are similar - it's to make the shading smooth. Whats up with that?

Bisque (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 12/26/2007 06:59
Although this looks really nice, you're pushing it with your colour counts. I know PJ is not counting png colours acurately right now, but I pasted it into photoshop and counted about 40. 40 colours for somethign this small is wayyyy too many. The middle of the clock just does not look like pixel art at all. I can tell that it probably -is- when i zoom in ,but you've got so many similar colours going on that i'm wondering how exactly you are choosing your palettes.
