Hi everyone, I'm in need of your excellent advice.

I've been working on this on and off and feel like I may have become blind to some of the usual basic flaws I fall prey to (colours, lighting, form, cohesion) so thought I'd pop it up on here to nip any problems while I finish it up.

Any advice or design suggestions would be great or just a thumbs up to get it finished.

+1 Jun, that's what I meant, I should have elaborated  :blind:

Good edit, maybe try altering a few of the books on each side so it's not perfectly symmetrical.

+1 nessx007, I had a quick play and thought of 2 possible routes:

(Keep the white, I got rid of it by mistake)

Go full on art nouveau, add swirls and all sorts (I love swirls).
Alternatively, further the pixel element: make some geometric patterns or use the nice elements you have already (this made me want to watch the James Bond Casino Royale so that might provide some inspiration for patterns)

With regards to the text; consider imitating a particular font, or perhaps add serifs for that regal look. With what you've got I would make the X wider, the E center bar higher, and the L bottom bar longer but that's subjective.

Hope that's helpful, keep at it, looks good so far!

Thanking you all for the comments and edits - Great feedback! This forum rocks.

@Fizzick: I love the Yoshi's Island art direction so I think I'll try push that more in the next pass.
@Jim16: Very keen eyes, Tom's my brother so having access to all his old work, his advice, and sharing the same influences it looks pretty similar. Totally agree I need to find my own voice though, so I'll keep pushing! Sneaky lizard's given me an idea for a different project...

So after an accidentally long holiday:

The pre- pass of edits I tried, I was thinking I could use the lil purple fella for something later on:

The second pass:

Apologies for the retarded working method (laying out all the changes) but I tend to push pixels on an existing thing then hate the changes I've made so I like to keep previous iterations, I'm certain this will go away as I get better at making design and pixel decisions!  ;D

Under the blue >> different outline styles (colour, black, thick), went for central, but so easy to change just as it's just the icing on the cake for when I get the forms and colours down.
Under the pink >> most improved? maybe the one with a larger head (up+right) is better. still not sure about that 'snout' either (Is it called a snout on a dinosaur?), perhaps idle frame turn towards audience, potential spikes (I'm not a fan, I want cute not badass!)

and under closer inspection a few random grey pixels > epic fail  :-[

 Hi everyone, long time lurker on pixel joint looking to start out in pixels.

Here are some game mock ups I've worked on and I'd like to know how to take them to the next level.

Things I struggled with:
Colour choices
Consistent style

And the lil' raptor character looked really off so I edited him to have cute chunky feet as he looks like he's on roller skates or stilts or something....

Any comments would be really helpful to get me started again.
