Yeah, well it looked like that purple stick figure guy was dancing too...

That frog edit is great. So great, in fact, that it would look completely out of place in my game.

(To see how this will really look in my game, set the zoom to 2x.)

But yeah, I see what you mean. The light source really makes the difference. Thank you for the tip!

Also, you all have probably noticed how the character looks really out of place as it is. I am really bad at making character sprites, so I colored a sprite sheet. I know, I'm a cheater...

Anyway, if you would like to donate a better character, PM me.

The last one looks like cartoonish Link in a purple suit.

Hi, I'm new here and really haven't made any posts, except for a little project in the Unpaid Work section, if you dropped by to see that. But I have been watching all of you and your pixel masterpieces for a little while now, and I thought I would start to get more involved here. I am learning pixel-art and starting to get better, and I thought this would be a great place to learn with you guys.

So, I guess I should show you some of my work...this is the showcase section, after all...

(You might have to refresh to see the animation.
Edit: Well, you might not be able to see the animation at all. Sorry!)

Alright, so the one on the top is a chameleon-dinosaur thing, and the one on the bottom is a frog. (Both are enemies for a spare-time game that I'm doing the graphics and some of the programming for.)

Now, I know what you can immediately see wrong with the top one; the legs are coming out of his stomach and don't overlap the body. But like I said, I'm still learning, so please work with me here. I managed a little dithering and chose some interesting colors, and overall I think it looks alright. I started out using a reference image (that's where the wacky colors come from), but then I strayed off too much from the image's look and set off doing the rest on my own.

I'm a bit happier with the frog on the bottom, since it doesn't seem to have any major flaws and the colors are subtle but still stand out. I have another image of it leaping but decided not to post it.

So please give me some pointers on this! I cannot get better without feedback!
