Help remaking 20x20 sprite to 16x16 with just 3 colors

Post by Alurith » Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:44 am

I have this old sprite i made in 20x20 for another program, a few years ago. Im trying really hard to convert the character down to a 16x16, but only being able to use the 3 colors that will display. I was figuring i could post it up, and see if anyone had any suggestions.

Also, can the top 8x16 pixles use a different pallet?

Figuring out which is which shouldn't be a challenge.

It is supposed to be a male, with medium-long length hair, and a purple cape, draped over his arms.

Cute character... I think you can made in it NESMaker, check in the tutorial videos on youtube, particularly :

And for colors, you have 2 palettes (of 3+1common colors) that you can use for 8x8 of your character/player/monster. Then the number of colors for your the cloths of your player will certainly need to be reduced.

Here's my interpretation:

I'll include a .rar file with the image inside.

Mist, that isn’t bad at all, really good, in fact. Sadly, it’s not quite what i’m Trying for.

I’m trying for a more cartoony look, while yours is more, Dragon Warrior like. If that makes sense.

I’m quite enjoying working with these harsh limitations of the NES, though.
