How do you choose what colors to use for your pixel art?

For highlights I usually shift my hue towards yellow and up the saturation, and for darker shades I shift it towards darker purple/blue's and lower the saturation, depending on the "base color". It's mostly eye-balled, I have grown more pleased with high contrast from shade (often black) to highlight.

Wow! Fantastic job! I'm somehow mesmerized by the mountains in the background, and that dragon is just awesome. This should be a video game. Congratulations on the DD!

And the fantasy would be an F-35 actually being used in combat.

Reign of Fire anyone? This is seriously really cool though. But I guess the DD status of this artwork aready says that plus more.

For what would seem a low (8bit / 32bit) style of artwork, this is wonderful detailing and color. I would not have expected this much from so little.

Who wins would depend on the intelligence of the dragon. If it knows to plan ahead instead of just reacting, it could win.

SO. MUCH. AWESOME. Jet versus dragon? Strangely reminds me of the books I'm writing...
Spending as much time as you must have spent to create this pixel by pixel is something I doubt I will ever have the patience to do. You did a freakin' amazing job! I salute you, sir! :salute:

... Am I the only one here rooting for the jet...? ^^; Sure, the dragon could probably take out the one jet, but not a whole fighter squadron.

I personally don't like the background colors + texturing that much, but the dragon and foreground is perfect.
