Palette List

The Lospec Palette List is a database of palettes for pixel art. We include both palettes that originate from old hardware that could only display a few colors, as well as palettes created by pixel artists specifically for making art. All palettes can be downloaded and imported into your pixelling software of choice (learn how).

Eroge Copper 

"There was some activity over at the pixeljoint forums (I'm not registered though) to do a 16 color palette with character. I took this to mean that the palette should have a heavy focus on some colors, and less on others." -Arne Niklas Jansson

"Psygnosis often used palettes in the muddy range (It was often the copper skies which added a touch of color). This particular one was inspired by the game Ork." -Arne Niklas Jansson

CPC Boy 

"I sort of like the Armstrad CPC palette, but it's a bit too in my face with saturation madness. How does it look desaturated? Well, Photoshop changes the values a bit when desaturating, but I went in and did some manual tweaking. Only 27 entries, so I added a A Gameboy screen gradient at the end. Unsure about ordering. Version is at 3 or 4 now." -Arne Niklas Jansson

"It's almost a crime to touch the C64 and MSX palettes, but I had to do it just to have them here. I see mine as parallel universe versions" Arne Niklas Jansson
