Hey guys, what's up.

So I'm trying to make a 64 colour palette, like the NES, but a bit more appealing and stylized, and using all 64 colours, kinda like the UFO50 palette. You know, funky colors and a modern touch I guess. I know I must put in the work to achieve this, but I don't even know where to start. How do you guys start making your palettes? Any tips or tutorials?

Thank you in advance.

I would start by making a lot of artwork that could possibly need this palette. Tweak and grow it as you're in the process of drawing!

Or take a bunch of NES screenshots and tweak the palettes to make them more appealing and stylized?

Derek Yu mentioned here that they are planning on releasing the UFO50 palette.
You could just wait for that.

http://www.thealmightyguru.com/Games/Hacking/Wiki/index.php?title=NES_Palette if Derek's palette isn't to taste, I personally would just take this and run some Hue/Saturation/Value adjustments on it and see what comes out of it. But I suppose I'm less meticulous with such things.

EDIT:
There's also this 'updated' NES palette which is less saturated. http://firebrandx.com/nespalette.html
