To some of the questions in the comments:

There's usually a pretty good reason why artists prefer to limit the number of colors when making spritework. Not only does it make matching colors easier, but it also allows the artist to keep a defined palette throughout the piece. Having too many colors can add a lot of accidental error. A small limited number of colors can be easily fit on a palette swatch, and if middle colors are needed, dithering or patterns are definitely a good option.

As for the small lack of saturation, this is usually a preference. Most of these colors are sepia-toned which give the piece a more nostalgic look. If the colors were too bright it would be a lot harder to look at, but all of the colors here work really well together.

Very nice! I love how you did this with only 23 colors. I always find that a limited palette gives art like this a sort of charm. You know what I mean?

This looks fantastic.

I'm curious if you have a reason for having no color more than about 2/3 saturated? 0_0

Well, using a small set of palette makes thing comfortable for me. I don't know what 2/3 saturated really is... But thank you : )

Sampling the colors in Photoshop none of them are more than about 2/3 saturated is what I mean. :)

I don't use Photoshop, friend... Or even actually touch it. So I'm not sure how the color sample really work like either. But I prefer to hand-picked all my colors then adjust their contrast and gamma

I see a huge troll with long cat-like arms sitting there!
Absolutely amazing work. But something is missing to make it absolutely irresistible to look at.
Some greens, foliage, room palms with more pronounced greens. 
I can only guess what impact that image would have if there would be drawn some lighting with
shadows I am a dummy!
