quickie for the weekly..
couch-bound due to a dental surgery, eating curry-soup and pixeling :)

edit: decided to use a compromise-palette for the piece. turns out the blues + violets look weird, interrupt the gradients on mobile devices (tested on my Iphone 5S, my LG G2 and several Samsung devices). noticed this on several other pieces here on pj as well, especially on those with c64-like-palettes, the db16 et cetera. worth a thread :)

original palette (left) vs. compromised-palette (right), zoomed 300%:

tools: grafx2 2.4 + 1 litre of curry soup

About the violet, yeah, looks a bit bitey. As far as smartphones go I have noticed that the darker blue of the C64 palette looks really weird on iPhones/iPads/what have you Apple stuff. No clue what's with that.

Your clusters, colours and refreshing forms never cease to amaze me, fantastic!

That new palettes is 100% brilliant

Worth noting: my computer actually shows the palette on the left as being too bright, I haven't looked at this on a mobile device. I have some kind of Samsung (not sure what), and the purple on the turban looks highly saturated on my display as well.

Seeing your original vision, it looks very good (though I'm not sure about that bright red on the nose against the bluish gray). Vibrant, but not garish.

It's so Sikh.

expanded my alternate palettes and tested them on multiple devices. 3rd one is the closest to how it looks on my notebook & desktop screen. any better?

I like the original palette; the less saturated one is too grey to me.

I made an arab guy, too! But with a long beard, not a big turban.

Pheno (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/28/2015 16:58

The less blue palette looks much better, really. The violet on the final piece is far too loud and interrupts the gradient a bit.

RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/28/2015 16:06

is it curry soup?

NoxS9 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/28/2015 14:51

Very nice! Now I wonder if eating curry will improve my habilities... Also, I think the alternative pelette works a little bit better.

Guru, please tell me, what's the meaning of wife?
