Hmm, the colors are all very bright and not very complimentary. The entire thing is also very flat. Try replacing the red or blue. Also the design is not very interesting. Try to make it look like some kind of material (plastic, metal, glass) and add more shading.

It's good to see that you're still working on this. I know that most of my large scale pixelings are usually abandoned. I am sorry that I was not specific in my comment about anatomy. I was mostly talking about the nose, but I did not realize that half the nose is in shadow. Know that I see that, I think it looks much better.

I know that you enjoy using unconventional anatomy and coloring, but anatomy and coloring are the two main points I notice that you could improvement. The red hair is very red, and it clashes with the green eye. His skull seems deformed also. His forhead should be much more round. Also, no matter what kind of spotlighting there is, there should never be colors that bright that immediately turn into shadow. I hope this helps.

An RPG? I think we have all been there although we rarely finish, good luck with the project anyway. You seem to have a pretty good idea of what you are doing. I due notice the colors could use some hue shifts, especially with the bald guy. His colors just seem dull (I am referring to the skin-tone). A little more variance in saturation could help. I'm not saying boost the saturation everywhere. Usually darker tones have less saturation and brighter ones have more, just don't go over board. Once again, good luck with the project.

First off, great effort. You obviously put very much time and energy into this. I know this thread has been floating around for a while, and there has already been a lot said here, but I noticed something that bothered me. That is the hair. The stands look very think. It reminds me of a doll my sister had with yarn hair. I realize this is very much a WIP, but I wanted to point out that the hair should have much greater color depth, and it should be much finer in appearence.

What you have is pretty good. The series does shows ambition, and the variety is nice, but there are a few things you could improve. These sprites are too dark to be Doom style. Many of the colors you used are overly saturated. The laser red being the most apparent. Also, your selout also seems too dark. This creates the appearance of a solid dark colored outline. You might also notice that in the Doom sprites there is no pure white, and only two pixels are actually black. I'm not even sure if those two pixels are pure black. Color reduction would probably do some good as well. Try leaving more space between colors. You don't need seemless blends for every shade; in fact, doing so creates a gradient effect that is not very nice. I also have a nitpick. The background color burns my eyes. Once again, good work so far.

Thank you for the idea. I love pixeling. What do you think of the update?

It's a little random, but I'm pretty happy with it. let me know if you have any advice. I had to make something to post when I found this place. I can't believe it took this long to find this place. I am so happy.  ;D
