I haven't submitted anything in a while, and I totally dig restricted prechosen color challenges.

This is a self portrait; I haven't done one in pixels in a while and I did a few in a couple different medias during my fall semester (I had been doing a lot of drawing from life then). I went with a graphical approch more than a pixelly one.

Oh, and my hair IS blue, so it worked out pretty great for that (actually, blue with a bit of green, but all blue reads easier). :P

Any crits are welcomed.

Good show of the amount of detail so few pixels and colors can give, looks fantastic!

 Your use of these colors makes them seem like they weren't even random. Really excellently done, I like your shading style a lot. My favorite entry I think.

I like it, the color choice looks natural, really loving the color contrast, it all blends so well for a random palette.
