Started as a quick practice in larger scale chars and smaller scale fonts. Ended up taking over 20 hours on this.
Used DB's palette as a base, and added violets, blues, skins, and other colors that weren't in the generic 16. Had a lot of fun with it - my first time using somebody else's palette.
I used many refs sparingly, for colors shading etc etc.
Also did the bonus... nevermind, no one cares. Fingers crossed.
