This one gave me a lot of trouble in all honesty. I really wish I started this one sooner because I kept reselecting images based on their complexity and the colors I wanted to pop. I settled on this handsome noodle because of their striking colors, although separating the colors of the hands from the snake was a challenge. I used my main art program Grafx2 (main usage is for pixel art) to sort the color palette by lightness and hue, then picked out the colors I didn’t want and gray-scaled them. The program is free and is lacking in comparison to other pixel art programs, but I’m quite fond of it myself.
This is beautiful!! I also did the Splash of Color, but separating those colors by hand I’m sure was long and tedious, but your finished photo (even though I’m not a snake person) captured my attention and I had to leave a comment and Congratulate you on the hard work! You did a fabulous job!
