Pixel Art / Re: WIP: HEY! Watch out!

The primary problem with link is his brightness.

You're coloring him with his "standard/naive" colors, as though he's a regular, non-color-shifted sprite from a zelda game.  Your scene is much darker than any scene in a sprite based zelda game would be, even a cave.  If your scene is going to be "darker than normal", link needs to be as well.

Art is not enjoyable if you're not good at it.

That totally depends on your mindset.
Also if art is not enjoyable if you are not good at it, please explain more than half of Deviantart to me.

You're absolutely right;  it's very subjective, a lot of people are terrible, but love doing art anyways.

I do, however, want to affirm his pain - many of us have to go through a several-year "art purgatory" before our skills match up with a lofty sense of taste.  It hurts bad, and I'm pretty sure most of us who do have a sense of taste decide that it's not worth it, and quit.  Decide they're not cut out to be artists.  I know I've got a lot of friends like that, who've given up the dream.  I suppose the world does have its need of accountants and HR people, but it's still pretty tragic, IMO.

If we want to carry on a theme, we could call this "art seppuku".    :(
