Palomino started playing as a professional at the age of eighteen with Trujillanos. The following year, he joined Carabobo but, after one season playing with the team, was bought by Guaros de Lara.
On 1 July 2011 Palomino scored on his debut in a pre-season friendly against Dacia Chişinău, netting the second in a 2–2 draw. He made his league debut for Cherno More in a 2–0 win over Montana on 6 August. Week later, Palomino scored his first goal in the Bulgarian A PFG in their 3–1 home win against Levski Sofia. On 27 August he assisted Ilian Kapitanov for the second goal in a 2–0 home victory over Minyor Pernik. On 18 October, in a 5–0 away victory over Kaliakra Kavarna, he assisted Georgi Iliev for the first goal in the match and scored Cherno More's third. On 28 November, in a 1–1 away draw against Slavia Sofia, Palomino netted his third goal of the season.
During the winter break, he was close to being transferred to Zorya Luhansk, but the deal eventually fell through. He missed the last games of the 2011–12 A PFG season due to sustaining an injury. Palomino was mostly confined to substitute appearances following Georgi Ivanov's appointment as head coach.
In December 2011, Palomino received his first call-up to the national team for a friendly game against Costa Rica. On 22 December, he made his debut, coming on as a second-half substitute for Louis Angelo Peña in the match that was lost by a score of 0–2.
