A couple people have asked, so here's the extremely cursory version of how I get "dots" using GIMP. I'll write this up better when school's out, kids. The way I do it involves creating two palettes, one with the 64 R/B/Y colours as their perfect RGB equivalents (“R” = 100% magenta = blue 255, green 0, red 255; R2B = 25% magenta, 100% cyan = red 191, green 0, blue 255; etc.), and one with my custom colours (which I've generated using the same process as in the first tutorial) -- both palettes must have all the colours in the same order!

A special flavour of thanks go to y2jenn (https://www.deviantart.com/y2jenn) for the feature. And thanks to the deviantART staff for the site, which really is great, even though I never hesitate to bitch when it irks me. I've recently revived the blog I tried to star
