I'm trying to make an 8-bit bitcoin. That is, an expanded 16 by 16 pixel image of a bitcoin using only the colors available on the NES. So I have two things I want from you.
1) Suggestions (Mainly on how I should shade with such a limited palate)
2) Feedback on which one(s) you think look best

These are the colors that were available to the NES:


Here's what I have so far. There is no shading, because I couldn't find a way for it to look good with this palate. Suggestions appreciated.




























The following are thanks to myrkul:




Edit: If you like any of these, go ahead and use them.
Edit2: Took the ones I really didn't like, let me know if anyone wants them back

What license? Am I free to use these in my next site?

Suggestions:
Half the size for coin and halve the pixel size.
Use low-key colours- give it a faded gold look.
Add a bit of shine in a band across them.

I don't know much about licenses. What would be the most free license? I don't care what you use them for, and I don't care if you even give me credit. Well, as long as you don't claim it as your own. So not the most free actually.
Suggestions:
Half the size for coin and halve the pixel size.
Use low-key colours- give it a faded gold look.
Add a bit of shine in a band across them.
Thanks, I'll try these suggestions as soon as I can.

MOST free is Public domain... What you're looking for is probably Creative Commons: http://creativecommons.org/choose/

ok, I think this is the right one: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/
But I don't really care if you give me credit. I just don't want people to claim it as their own.

Here is the half sized one:

As for giving it a faded gold look, do you think you could pick out a few colors from the palate in my first post for that? I'm colorblind, so I have trouble with faded colors.  Sad

Here's my hack-job:



I used the color from the palette that was directly beneath the main color.

Lol, I just got home, and was about to try the band of light thing, but looks like you beat me to it! Smiley Anyway, it looks good!

I redid yours with a transparent background in png format (JPG's try to smooth out the edges, and we don't want that in this case.) Also, 2 different sizes. Thanks again for contributing. It's really hard for me to do shading and lighting due to my color blindness.

Yeah, if I had thought about it, I would have made it a .png .jpg is just my default output format. Smiley

I don't think these came out very well, but I'm posting them anyway. I encourage you to edit them yourselves if you have an idea like myrkul did. Suggestions

I don't really like these ones either. I think I'm pushing too hard to try and be creative, but I'm having fun with it at least. I think I'll try and make that faded gold one that genjix wanted. Expect results to be disastrous because of my color-blindness.

If these are not the right colors, please tell me which I should use

Nice! It seems like it needs something though, and I can't figure out what it is...
Edit: Got it! Animation! I'm picturing the band of light moving across the coin.
