Can anybody identify this?

on: May 29, 2013, 08:18:59 pm
Anybody know a game that uses a color palette like this?

Also, would this be considered 32 bit?

Is there anywhere I can find color tone chart, or more pictures, that are relative to this palette?

Uhhhmmmm, I've seen that before . . .

On PJ.

Reverse Google image and Tineye both failed to find its source.


But as for the image - look here.

32bit??? I don't see how.

Not sure what you mean by color tone chart. Might be better to just explain your intent/what you're trying to do. It sounds like you're trying to establish a palette for a game.

there doesn't seem to be quantization on the colors (like on a SEGA MegaDrive, where all the colors would end up with a 7 or a F due to 5-bit per color channel), at least. So I'd say it's a 26-colors picture in a 24bit colorspace.

The image you posted (which has actually been cropped from the original) was by coffee and comes from this topic (though all the images in that topic are dead).

It may be worth browsing the user's post history to find similar work, but I too am curious about what you're trying to accomplish.

Oy. I could be full of crap - it was probably here that I saw it, not PJ . . .

Sorry for the late reply guys, rough night.

I recall seeing it somewhere on Pixelation, (here) actually.

Someone had it as their avatar and it really caught my eye.

Also, tried Reverse Google image and came up with squat results.

. . .

Yes, that's it.

Sorry for the ruse if there was any, my lingo hasn't really improved much and have trouble explaining myself.

I remember a thread on this site, where people submitted charts of the palettes they commonly use for their pixel art-designing.

Was wondering if anyone had one relative to the one used for that picture.

. . .

Thank You! This is part of what I was looking for.

This definitely helps very much. Giving me a sort of idea what I'd be limiting myself to for mock/emulation.

It was definitely a interesting scroll.










Would you think these pics perhaps include the same color scheme as the other pic I posted?

The greens look similar, but I don't know about anything else.

The browns for example look far different.

There's really nothing stopping you from just using the palette in the picture.  Coffee chose colors, and updated them whenever he thought it'd suit the piece better. You can see this process in the two versions of Sharkfin Island that were posted.

I have three versions of the image you first posted (which I'm reluctant to post without permission), and the palette is updated a bit between them.  A specific palette from a console or something isn't used. He chose the best colors for the work he was creating.

You can use the tool Mathias posted to compare the image palettes: See here

Here's an interesting topic if you're into palette creation process.

If you're just looking for a palette to use, I see no reason not to start from one you like and tweak it as needed.

Aw man, it was definitely posted here but it's so hard to find anything on here or pixelation :(
