so i was showing some of the sprites to some of my artist coworkers and they told me that many of the backgrounds used scaled down images that were then cleaned up , this sort of opened my eyes because i used to think everything in games like metal slug was made from scratch , pixel by pixel . my boss has been in the gaming industry for the past 20+ years and has worked on some old school titles . he was the first one to let me know that these were clearly scaled down images since the perspective was all wrong in the first place and everything else such as the rendering on the objects were different from the rest of the art .he told me this used to be a common practice back in the day. do let me know what you guys think about this . was this common knowledge to everyone in the community?

Had'nt posted in a while , please help me find out everything that is wrong with it? The pallette,  where I shouldve used desaturated colors for AA etc . How can I improve my color ramps or even make a good one . I mainly follow metal slug , so generally for me , it is saturated with dark colors and desat with light , then same with objects in the back , more desaturation basically.  For the character sprite I intentionally did not want him blending in , was trying to get the feel of how normal game sprites did not get affected by the background elements and popped out . Also I am aware that there is a lack of highlight with warm hues from the flames on the surrounding objects . Couldnt do it due to time constraints

Hey guys , been doing pixel art for a while now, doing it somewhat semi professionally. Never really joined communities ,so wanted to try out here and see what you guys think about my art . I am well acquainted with things like hue shifting etc . been an artist for years , now just want to focus on pixel art and get to the level of artwork done by the guy who worked on the first 3 metal slugs and the other masters of pixel art at snk . let me know what you guys think . will be posting here frequently
