Good stuff and excellent choice of colors

I like the palettes and the lighting. Only thing I'd change in the background is giving the inner lamp bars a little antialiasing.

But that mini thor is too damn cute. I'd make it a little angrier.

There, now he's ready to rain blood for the glory of Odin's beard.

I like it, it looks just like a metroidvania I would play.

Blasphemous, where the ultimate boss are pits and spikes.

Except a few pieces of lesser quality that clashed with the rest of the game, it was almost all eye candy for pixel artists.

I have PTSD about the windy snow mountains and  that "shortcut" room with the spikes and the swinging scythes.

I enjoyed the game, but those two parts were unfairly brutal, as was that nun at the top of the windy mountains that takes away half of your life in one hit, just before the save point. It feels like a brutal slap in the face the first time you're playing.

I use a old version of PSP which has a specific option but you can also use the "Image Specs Tool" under "Features" here on PixelJoint.

You can also count the number of color on Photoshop by using (or just attempting to) Mode -> Indexed Colors... and view the palette with "Color Table"

You have 41 colors there. it's not too many but I think most are unintentional since they're very slight variations.

You might want to add a little antialiasing to Neo's lower left part of the jacket, otherwise it looks good.

A great piece, I love it

That transparent fog is adding approximately 216 unique colors, you should try reduce the total color count to make pixeljoint happy.

Great colors and spritework

I like it.

You could give it a little more punch by playing with the colors, here's a subtle edit to the hue and saturation of the blues:

Happy new year.
Hopefully a productive one

The basic ZX colors and limitations makes it very hard to make good pictures, you should consider the SPECTRA interface as an excuse to a more extensive palette, which will no doubt give you better rewards and satisfaction.

Thank you.

About my work process, in this case I first put down the basic shapes on different layers, then I worked on shading and details.

As you see the wall was boring so I made a new layer over it with the bricks' outline and painted them to look like bricks. Then I added more details and played around with color balance to find the right mood.

Looks nice, I hope you'll get it done soon. I like metroidvanias.
