Those poor trees.

I kind of ran out of time with this. I do see that it still has a lot of issues, in terms of colours, anatomy and shading, but I didn't quite know how to improve it further, so a lot of time was spent experimenting.

If nothing else, it was very educational to work with Dawnbringer's palette. Forced me to pixel in a way I've never done before.

 Thanks, guys. It's a shame more people didn't join this challenge. This is probably the lowest quality 1st place I've ever seen on PixelJoint, and that's not false modesty or fishing for compliments. I know where I'm at. Oh well.

 @DatMuffinMan: Thanks for the feedback! You're definitely right about that, I just couldn't for the life of me figure out how to fix that with the palette at my disposal. Changing the hue of the armour made him less recognisable as Doomguy, and making the trees more blue / grey just made them look weird and sickly. Working with this palette is like a Rubik's cube. You change something one place, it means you have to suddenly change a lot of colours, to avoid a crash.

 I think that the fact that the trees have as much contrast as the doomguy make them seem more prominent then things in the bg should be. The doomguy himself is great though.

 I like the colors I used it and the idea.
