Is that palette editor where you could selecta batch of colors at once something like a plugin? Or miascugh use different version? I could'nt find it anywhere.

Press Crtl Alt P to launch the plug-in. The interface is a little odd, click the help button for an explanation of how the plug-in works.

ok, here's the video (1024x744)
I know there are a lot of anatomical/lighting errors and I usually put down all of the form before colouring but I was just eager to start recording. I'll make a proper video of a smaller, better piece soon.

there it is, 40 minutes, 64x64 visible palette. Tried the Korean approach to coloring, pretty happy overall. Watch me squirm as I try to find something to draw! Watch me set a separate black to use in the picture, then decide not to, and therefore have a 15 color palette!

EDIT: oh ok, yea I save the color later.

I like the video. It’s a pretty solid piece, actually. It’s also good example for the beginnings of an AA & dither heavy Atari-era demo piece. Look forward to seeing more from you.

Helm
Thanks a lot! You have your colors pretty much set up at the ¼ mark in the video. Your apparent confidence with bold palette choices is impressive. I do think you lost the distinction between the mountains and the clouds along the way, mostly when you added highlights to them both.

I wonder if you’ve ever had issues with mixing so many colors that you end up going overboard? My problem is that I never seem to have enough colors to work with, but I’d like to get to the point where I have to restrain myself from going color crazy. :-)

I think I’m going to have another go at a more efficient shooter sprite video, incorporating some the pointers I’ve received.

pkm: about getting better with low colourcount and weird palettes just do some oldschool pixelling. C64, EGA, ZX Spectrum are good choices to get you further in terms of colour conversation in some way or another.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Agree on the clouds. Wasn't happy with them anyway. Highlights don't work on clouds, and they stood out too much. Edited.



Less flashy but better, I think.

Define "overboard", heh. 16 color palettes of wildly different hues are second nature to me after the last few years of juggling the c64 palette. You can represent anything you want with 16 global colors.
