I am not sure if this will work well, but the girl's hair was originally a more orange color and had a shine, so this is an edit of Opacus' edit:

EDIT: Ah, nevermind.  The very original version wasn't orange, but several versions were orangeish.

Edited.
Imho you make it too dark and contrast.
Every pixel is important.

The colorful one looks best in my opinion.

I dont know why you say that, the pixels is totaly out of control.. In my own opinion, the colours that are used
are very important to get the right atmosphere and it dont matter how great your picture is in it selves if you use the wrong colours.
Therefore, I think the original picture don't give me any feelings at all, it's only hurting my eyes...

But that washed out version presents a very different style regardless if it is more readable.  I personally would not enjoy playing a game with the characters colors transparent-ish and washed out with some kind of gray overlay.  Not only that it looks like she is in a morning-ish dim white light on top of a snow covered mountain.  It presents a totally different feel.  And honestly when are you going to put that drawing on a black backdrop.  If you draw a character with those bright colors then wouldn't it be smarter to wash out all the backgrounds instead of the characters.  Even if you do that it still presents a different feel.

Since when was readability more important than the style we are trying to achieve.  Thank God the Wachowski brothers didn't wash out the colors in Speed Racer otherwise it would've been way less appealing.  I don't know what else to say other than why not invent instead of following some rule someone made up.

There needs to be a happy medium.  Ar's edit looks like it would only look good on the GBA hardware (not emulated), and the old version is a little too saturated and contrasted.

I would go for a vibrant look, but within reason.

Hoping I found that happy medium!

Thanks a bunch, EvilEye, for the skirt edit; I found it very helpful! Also, thanks Mike for defending my style. :)
