andy, this is very bad work.  I can't tell what is going on with his body at all, his face is a total mess, the eye is really bizarrely shaped and shaded.  Regardless of whatever "original style" you are going for, the end result is unappealing and unattractive.  I can not give any more advice except for the basics: form, posture, basic shading.  You have major problems at the lineart, lighting, color selection, and polish levels.  If it sounds like I'm being extra-harsh, it's because you seem to be pretty well set in your ways, and like most of your threads you will work on the polish level only, rather than having the guts to tackle the fundamental problems that are crippling your work.  If that is the case, then it certainly can't hurt for me to go a little overboard in the hopes that you will wake up and see your work with fresh eyes!!

 I don't really get what he's saying either, but I'm gonna stick with my style. It's a first piece on chibis if you didn't read. It looks pretty wack at first try. I'm still working on them.

Just his face a bit. I already know how to draw anime a long time ago from that How to Draw Manga site hehe. But thanks. Check out the books, they are great. I own 9 books of it and they are all very helpful in applying it to pixel art.

A lot of weeaboos(Another word for a person thats obsessed over anime) call it chibi, another word for 'super-deformed', its an art style, a bit related to anime.

25 colors, good god, thats alot especially for a small piece such as this, thats too much, there's just alot of other problems with the overall person, especially face structure. Okay, so I googled some chibis and here's the best I got:
Now the main thing you're seeing here is that the face is the largest feature on the person, hands and feet are also pretty large. With the eyes and other things, they just don't look like anime eyes, the pupil on the eye is basically covering over 90% of the body, where it's chibi or not, so what I think you should do is look at some examples of eyes, face structures, etc. from here:
Other crits: Human skin isn't that shiny, the light source isn't really defined too well, a bit pillow-shadish in places, the way he's facing is weird, his face is looking right, along with his body, then the legs are facing left, not only that but his shoulders are uneven and its hard to tell where his hands are.

 Thanks for the advice. I didn't really intend him to be an anime chibi. This was more of an original design. I'll work on the skin.

 This is my first chibi fighter sprite. 25 colors + 1 transparent. I did this for practice.

Thanks! I really like edit. I'll take it and learn from it. I like the effects you added, it fits this type of character.

Work on the shirt. The rest is good, but just finish that shirt. I would like to see how it looks when it's done.

It's alright if he doesn't have brown hair. I think you could add like brown highlights on black hair :D. Just my idea. Hehe those guys punk guys are koreans actually hehehe.

Bruce Lee's one of my favorite legends also. Try adding some brown or some reddish brown to his hair. Asians actually look cool with hair colored than natural black. Check out Fei Long and Ryu from Street Fighter for that inspiration.

 Not bad man. I took some minutes to mess with this little guy. I've cleaned him up and changed the palette too. Practice AAing inside the sprite, not outside. I help that helps.
