One of the biggest things I can see is that there's not much contrast in the sprites, and the shuttle and side containers seem to be pillow shaded.

Your outlines should be well below the middle shade, and you may benefit from using less colors and maybe relying less on solid and consistent outlines.

Notice how on the side containers, the shading seems to be moved over one pixel, so the outer outline is lighter than the one near the middle. Also, the middle orange part only uses four colors which gives it more contrast a less plasticy look. Now, I made this in about thirty seconds, so it's not perfect and I didn't edit the ship, but it should help.

I've always checked this site because of how awesome most of you guys are, but I've never thought of myself as good enough to post anything here. Then I decided "screw it, it'll help me improve if nothing else." So, I've been spriting and all that for about 5 years now and I feel like I've really started to get the hang of it.

And here's a link to more of my stuff-

Just look at the improvements-

Two years old:



Relatively new:

Also really old:

Pretty new:

Now, I realize that there are still lots of things I'm doing wrong or could improve on. That's mostly why I'm here, to learn and hopefully improve myself.
