Is there any standard Palette for shipbucket? I'm working with the 16 color MS paint one right now, but Aesprite (the program i'm using, which is awesome by the way and you should check it out) supports any kind of arbitrary Palette you want.
Also, are there any shielded versions of the type 96 AA guns?
Here's where I am right now, working with layers is nice. I set the reference line-work to blue because why not. It won't be visible in the finished version.
