Like idea of the title. The picture is nice.

Very nice, Krysis!  And you're right about the dithering, the way you've used it it doesn't really emphasize shapes as much as it could (look at the left side of the neck and around the cheeks) but I don't think it hurts the image at all, it still looks quite awesome.  5/5 buddy, and nice work with the Native American features.  Did you use a reference?

You shouldn't be surprised given the challenge restrictions. You have pure white and pure black, so the most logical choice is something right in the middle to equally benefit both colours.  If you choose a lighter tone, the black seems too dark, and if you choose a very dark tone, the white is left useless. As for saturation, an oversaturated colour would not fit the other two, since they create a grayish image. 
Gosh, I talk too much about silly things. Thanks for the comments, guys. And sorry if my dithering is a little sloppy, it's just not my thing.

Great idea krysis, altough I hoped for more color. All entries seem to use greyish colors now :(

It's a native american. That's what really matters :)
