Fun Design, great thighs. CONSIDER redoing the hair shading to be less pillowy.

Sorry, but, when you say that, do you mean make it fall down more?

I mean more have the shadows match the lighting more. Pillow shading is when you shade both sides of an object giving it a kind of pillowy look, it's only present on the one tuft really and I'm pretty sure you meant to imply more hair sprigs than you did doing that but the fact that the top of the hair in back doesn't follow the lighting makes it look more like pillow shading. Play around with that hair and see if you can get it more natural looking!

Oh, ok. Sorry, it seems that I've forgotten some terms about pixel art

Eh, I didn't really know what to do. Is it a step in the right direction at least?

Gave him an eye, although I'm not entirely sure if I like it or not. What do you guys think?

Looks fine to me play around with shapes some if you want to try different things for it.
For example, the roundness of it gives them kind of a bubblier appearance

Really solid body and costume. Most of the issues are with the head I think. That said I did make some minor alterations to the body so take a look at those side by side, most importantly the lower legs being different sizes.

As for the head right now you're going completely round. The face is longer, the cranium is round but don't forget about the jaw, give him a chin. As for the eye give him an upper eyelid and an expression, right now it's just completely wide open. Eyes are important to personality. Don't forget the eyebrow. The hair is kind of just a mess, try to give it a bit of flow in specific directions.

You're using a lot of colours that don't really do anything. Scale it back to your base colours for now until you start shading. Don't work on this bright blue. Unless you know specifically what background you'll be displaying on use a neutral colour like a mid grey. Using a bright colour will throw off your perception. Plus it is unpleasant to stare at while working.

As I said very nice work on the body. Maybe take a closer look at some anime references and see how they shape the head if that's what you're going for. :y:
