I’ve started working on some color palettes for a few projects. Because we aren’t limited to 8-bit visuals these days, I’ve taken an atypical tack. Rather than having a palette for a specific biome or environment, I’m working on creating a variety of 8-color palettes that can be combined as needed in any various environment. The benefit here is that the total colors in a scene are still being limited, and the palettes can be used to ensure a visual “feel”, but more total colors can be utilized in a pixel art format.

Sulfur Pools
Hot & Cold
Cool Blue

I have ideas for about a dozen more and plan to utilize each of them in various ways. I also have CSS stylesheets made for them. I’ll upload those at some point and add links for anyone who might be interested.
