Don't dither until you have all the shades you'll be using in there, otherwise you'll end up replacing the dither again later."
I am aware of this, I always want to punch myself when I find out that I am replacing the dithering again.

Start with more anatomically and volumetrically investigated designs. You can pixel well, time to step it up subject-matter-wise, I think.
I'll try but I can't promise anything.

Try shading different textures, more porous, hairs, less shiny luminescent highlight, as it seems you've done that a lot.
Yes sir.

Use the preview window instead of zooming in and out all the time, why not?
I use the preview window too but for some reason I like to see the piece in the main window. It's just a stupid habit I guess.

Maybe at some point some Flash Video Player system could be added.
(Think of youtube, just for pixelart education more or less)
I guess it would be more accesible and user friendly.
(I found this with some Flash video player source code http://jeroenwijering.com/?item=Flash_Video_Player )

Or simply upload them to youtube or a similar service and then link them here, so pix's bandwidth isnt overused.

Can we upload avis to youtube that use such an odd and not well-known codec as this? if so, that would really help bandwidth concerns. If not, we'll just have to deal on our server.

I installed the codec, but I still can't see it...uploading them to youtube seems a nice idea.

Use a decent media player like Media Player Classic or VLC

Uhm, I suppose you can still upload them to youtube, but maybe the video quality would be reduced.
Somewhere I read that vimeo is a better option for keeping quality, but alas, I havent used either of them (uploading-wise) so I cant really say.
:X
Has anyone tried uploading their pixel videos to any videosharing service for checking?

I uploaded a video of an old twinsen demo to youtube:

quality is acceptable, infact the visual glitches and lagged sound was because of the program I used to record it :n:

That quality is unacceptable for pixel art specific videos.

OT: nice game. Heaven knows why you chose to use Little Big Adventure IP for this when you could easily use your own characters. Is the game coming along? I'd love to play this by the look of it.

well, keep in mind I did record it at 1:1.. not that thats much of a point I just needed to say that so this post wasnt completely off topic...:
I could have easily made it an original character, but before I started work on the game I recently found and played through both little big adventure games, so I recalled twinsen is awesome and I thought I'd pay him a bit of respect and maybe even get some people interested in the official games.
I'll make a topic when Ive got a public demo ready in a week or so ;)

This is freaking amazing, I'm downloading them now and very much excited to see some skilled pixel artist in action! I really thank you guys for doing this.
