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). You can also try a our palette of the day or a random palette.

Washed-Over 16 

Created by A.J. Otero

I wanted to create a 16-color master pallete that was a little less eye-damagingly saturated that my Spiral-16 palette, something like the Commodore 64, so I made this.

Spiral 16 

Created by A.J. Otero

Meant to be a master pallete for general use in video games.  While it was inspired heavily by the palette of the Pico-8, I actually constructed this one by setting aside black, white, and 1 indermediate grey, then, in what can be seen as an idiosyncratic color ramp, drastically shifting the hues of the rest of the colors as I gradually changed the value, so that the hues go through two full "cycles" throughout.  This should (hopefully) form a "spiral" in the RGB color space, hence the name.
