Tiger in the Mud Revisited by Rhopunzel Tiger in the Mud Revisited by Rhopunzel
Original: [link]

I was bored last night and decided to edit a picture I was really proud of 3 years ago and apply some of the things I've learned since then about color usage, contrast and hue shifting. They're all things I didn't really care about 3 years ago but slowly came to appreciate as I gained more experience as a pixel artist. The result is almost halving the colors used (from 27 to 14!) while hugely improving the look of it compared to the original.

I uploaded this as its own thing because I feel like the contrast with the older one is like night and day, and kind of reminds me that there's always room to improve.

Thank you! The original was actually inspired while I was playing WoT. The tank in the picture was the Tiger I was playing (which is why it had a lengthened cannon). I stopped playing due to the grind, so I changed the cannon to be more realistic as some people were asking questions :P

This is BRILLIANT. It really look a lot better than the original (which wasn't half bad, to be fair.)

I could have done, but it would have made it look too sepia-like. I could have probably gotten it down to about 12, maybe 10 if I stretched. Generally I'm happy with anything under 16.
