Abstract

Pixel art is created together with a color palette which greatly affects the overall visual quality. From a given image with hundreds of thousands of colors, it is difficult to pick out a limited number of colors for the color palette. We propose an automatic system, which adopts similar steps of the manual creation processes by pixel art artists, to effectively synthesize the color palette of a pixel art from a given image. Based on our approach, both artists and novices can easily derive a low-resolution image which is very close to the required final pixel art.
