I like it :)

You probably thought about this as well, what can be done about the abbreviated item names on the character sheets? As it looks there's not much space for rearranging but "Bd Sword"... Broad Sword I guess? ;) One idea just came to my mind that might work:
Remove the item names altogether, and only show them as tooltips if neccessary. Instead, remove the generic item type icons and replace them with unique icons for each item. The freed space from removing the names would also allow for bigger icons if neccessary.

I bought Pyxel a while back when it was included in a Humble Bundle, I think I paid about 2 Euros and I'm glad I did it and I'm quite satisfied with it, especially for that price.
So, maybe you wait for a sale of Pixen or another program.

The torches are significantly more saturared than the walls, which is to be expected, but maybe you could experiment with adding a light falloff effect around the flame of the torch so the stark contrast is smoothed a bit.

The warrior is the only one with a thin base.

The footstep indicator might make more sense if it didn't overlap tile borders, but rather have one step (or rather, two feet) per tile.

Personally, I'd prefer the selection effect to be linear instead of quickly fading in and out the dark blue color in a pulsing fashion.

Just nitpicking here but I think you did great work so far and I'm interested to see where you will go with it. Also keep in mind that you should only consider all comments and suggestions, not feel pressured to change anything without consideration.

Cool project. Maybe later you could add the option to change the tile size. I have some System Shock 2 16x16 characters waiting to be put into a game ;)

The character highlight blinking is too strong and/or fast for my tastes. About 5 times slower would be easier on the eyes ;)
Since seeing the first screenshot I noticed that it's hard to discern the grid pattern on the floor since each tile graphic is also made up of foor stone tiles. Maybe add the option to overlay a colored grid or similar to help calcluate distances.

The hat looks much better now!  :y:

Maybe make the shadow under the fighter's helmet rim a bit darker. He could also wear calf boots instead of leather shoes. You could experiment with putting a small spike or peak onto the helmet, too.

The wizard's robe might be too busy now with two different designs in varying size. I'd test it with only one or the other, both could look good I think (alternate "skin" choice for the character sprite :) )

The upper (or rather, far awar) portion of the bases has a strange curve, especially then looking at the one the dwarf is standing on. Three pixels diagonal, then three horizontal... hm. On the whole, I like them as far as diameter and thickness is concerned. Maybe they could be slightly wider still, to accomodate future characters that have more acrobatic poses ;)

The fighter's sword has this single offset right at the middle, at this pixel scale it looks strange, I think a 2:1 (two up, one right) would be better and still have a different angle than the dwarf's axe.

All in all, these already look great, especialkly the colors and lighting. These beg for some basic animations, just two or three frames for some elements like the wizard's flame spell, the fighter's sword and shield, and the dwarf's axe and right arm (and/or head).

My ideas:

I think round, thin based look better :)
The warrior is holding his small shield very high up
The wizard could use a wider hat as suggested above, and the contrast between the robe and the pattern on it could be increased; Maybe make it much brighter, or even a yellowish hue (wizards seem to like a star motif on their robes ;) )

Some observations:

- The pistol grip might be too wide, then again making it 1 pixel narrower might look too narrow :)
- The magazine could be a little bit longer, and more straight at the top
- An AK doesn't really have a magazine well like an AR-15 does
- What's that bright brown slightly curved part between charging handle and handguard?
- The front sight should be the same height as the rear sight
- The rear sight is slightly more complex and longer, not just a small two-pixel part
- The charging handle is just a piece of metal potruding from the bolt cover, in the sprite it is a weird cube with grey borders
- An AK-47 has a stubby barrel, yours looks more like that of an AKM with the slant to it

My observations:

  • Trigger & trigger guard are too small. trigger guard can be widened at least 1 pixel, possibly made taller and 2 pixels wider.
  • The magazine has a straight bottom, on the sprite it's too rounded
  • The curve of the pistol grip is wrong, it widens towards the bottom, and goes diagonally into the top of the weapon
  • The narrow strip of metal going along the weapon's length is drawn too prominent, it needs one pixel shadow line less along teh top.
  • The ejection port is too long
  • The back top part of the gun, where it goes up two pixel, should really be only 1 pixel high at most.
  • The collapsigle wire buttstock doesn't look that way.
