Jeremy, unfortunaly this platform does not allow such a combination of colors. Do not use dark green with light green (and other dark and light). On the PC is not the problem, but earlier it was difficult.

 How about changing the black in most of the body to the dark green? If I've understood correctly that's doable as far as restrictions go :)

Really cool,  like the colours.

256x192 pixels standard ZX Spectrum resolution, only 2 colours per 8x8 pixels attribute /HW restriction/ from 15 colours palette /8+7 with bright ON/, you can't use a light shade and a dark one on the same 8x8 square, black colour has not brighter version, hence 15 colours / 2x8 minus "black bright"/.

The sunlight is behind the figure of a dinosaur. He can not be bright and different colors.

Try it for yourself to draw on the Spectrum.)

It would be good if you didn't color it. None of the colors match, plus you added black to them, and it makes a dark and seemingly messy pallette.

I would suggest using a neutral pallette if you're really having trouble with colors. But everything else is good!

I don't think Jeremy means that you should add other colours to the 7 you're using, I think he just means that if you use colour on colour dithering instead of colour on black or white you get more combinations that the eye will perceive as different colours instead of a darker/lighter version of the colour you use against black/white.

I'd imagine that's why he gave you Helm's Spartan as example, as that one has even less colours (4), used in a magnificent way.

Still a good job nonetheless :)

Jeremy, Spectrum palette is very poor. In this picture, the mixing other colors would be bad.

Ambient (Level 6 Major) @ 11/27/2009 19:57

 Good work, but I as well agree with Jeremy. However, I don't see anyone competing with Helm, so I don't hold it against you. ;)

Tuna Unleashed (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 11/27/2009 07:15

i agree with jeremy but this is beautiful nonetheless

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 11/27/2009 00:37

 Great :)

Thing is, you have so many more colours available to you; all of your dithering is colour + black when you can make this look even better by mixing two or more colours in dither patterns. Have a look around the site for similar images to see what I mean, Helm's Spartan probably being the most famous example of what you can do with these eye-watering palettes!

Amazing picture!

I feel pity for that lone bastard, facing the ultimate.

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 11/26/2009 23:57

Nice, dinosaurs rock.  So does this piece.

IsoWayne (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/26/2009 22:25

The guy about to get consumed by one, thats who. Anyways a pretty decent piece just a crazy amount of dithering
