5 Color Soldier project

Hi,

I took photoshop out this week and started playing around and gave myself a challenge: Making a soldier scene with the use of only 5 colours. I will be posting my progress here for critism/comments.

Thank you.

[Edit] Will add the progress as it goes

Your color ramp is quite boring so far. You should add some variation.

Okay I'll play around with the colors when I am done, since I really suck at finding a good palette and it can take me a while

But here is the work so far

Just out of curiosity, what's the apparent obsession graphic artists have with using few colors? Is it just for a challenge or...? I've seen a lot of graphic people tell others that their graphics had too many colors in them.

There was a point to it when working on an 8-bit tileset(because you can easily run out of colours and things start looking yuck) but now that graal supports 32-bit I don't beleive there is any point haha.

It's generally good practice. Limiting yourself to a smaller palette will help you understand how to use colors better.
