I remember that there was a pre-built and recommended palette on this site somewhere. Can't for the life of my find it again though.

Ah color. I should mention, that while I am not color blind I do suffer from mild color deficiency. Not sure which colors though, color vision tests are inconclusive.

Lol, I like it RanMaster!

I'm sorry, I don't know what the term "straight ramp" means.
Can you give me an explanation?

Hello, first I'd like to thank everyone that gave me help with that dragon I was working on. I wanted to let you all know that I did read through and follow your advice as best as I was able.
I used that dragon to really test the upper limits of my abilities. That project has been put on the back-burner as I try to get the basics. Which brings me to my latest project. Overall i'm happy with it, I used it as a bit of an anatomy study as well as a light source study.
But I realized I don't know of any good techniques to imply facial detail on a sprite this small. Note that the current face was just something drawn out of frustration.

Dragons happen to be quite ambitious to draw and pixel. I'd suggest to study how others did it, and seriously consider the 'simpler' option of a small, cartoonish, scale-less dragon such as these cuties: 1, 2.

I was actually expecting this to be the first advice i'd get. I don't deny that it is probably the best as well.

But as i'm a bit of a masochist, I had to continue along my current path with some adjustments.

I looked at the tutorials and tried to add a light source, which is directly to the viewing side of the character(think your head is the sun)
I tired to limit my use of colors but add a greater amount if distinction between them. I think 8 different colors? I also changed some of the proportions and am working a lot more with the line art.
Right now it looks too much like a dinosaur to me, so some of that might change, overall though I think it is an improvement. So thanks for all the input, more is always welcome

Thanks for the advice, I scaled up the image a bit and tried add a bit more color and noise to match the random patterns from the croc pic.
