My major qualm is that his skin is a lot darker as are his tattoos. The face doesn't real seem like him either. I guess I'm saying he's all around too white.

As mentioned the collar looks funky and the moon is very flat, but overall though I like this a lot. You're much better than your avatar lets on.

I just did an edit of the colors. The main problem with them was that most everything was completely saturated. It lacked depth because of that. I'll have more to say in a bit.

My favorite pixel artist pixels my favorite video game character. It must be my lucky day.

I can't fathom how you make such distinctive lines. As always your style is superb, and makes me a jealous person. I have a few suggestions that I hope you'll take into consideration. His right hand's fingers look rather short. I think your fingers naturally go diagonal when you put your hand in that position. His eyes don't seem focused -- like he's not looking down the sights of the gun. Adding a bit of a squint could solve this problem and also give him more of a badass feel. While I like the colors a lot, I think since you're using so few more contrast would look good and give more depth.

I second the notion that you post your old stuff. Oh, one more thing, I'm Frank Jaeger if you remember that name.

I've come to realize that I'm piss poor at explaining things. This is just a big practice piece along the lines of I'm just sketching things out and in this case sketching things from a random shape. It's not something done with a lot of forethought, I'm adding as I go. This explains why several things break the flow and such. So in conclusion - I'm a jackass.

I'll see about that blue.

You have a lot of things that I want to discuss, but I'll have to respond in-depth when I get back from work. As a general reply to your post though, I'm not trying to redefine pixel art nor do I see this as a grand illustration fit for the halls of a great museum. I'm just practicing different ideas and (eventually) methods.

It's not supposed to be anything. I didn't set out and say, "this shall be..." It's open to interpretation. The idea that you should color it is ridiculous to me. I provided no lineart, and it's already colored. Yes, it is WIP. Comments and critiques are always want I am in need of when I post here.

I'm glad that you like it, and I'll get to the "we shall stand united" part of your post further down.

It's good that you see things. Color Me Pink is the title of the piece. It has meaning for me, but to those other than me it probably doesn't. Now onto the meat of your post.

Yes, sketchy and abstract are two quite correct adjectives to describe this piece. You seem to be using them as a negative though. Not pixelart? Ouch, haha. I created it pixel by pixel and put great (some) effort into providing the illusion of depth and motion. I didn't use AA, and there's not a bit of dithering. Does that make it a terrible piece of shit? I don't believe so, and as Alex pointed out so do a few others. I understand that this doesn't have the polish of many other pieces, but I'm one of those people that often enjoys the pencil sketch more than the finished painting. I also know that this isn't really a popular point of view. Oh well.

I should have posted that I wanted critiques. As for the rest, I think you're right about the double helix and sprout.

The eyes are a bit of a style thing, but when I first made them I couldn't do much better. I thought I'd stick to tradition, but it makes sense to change it. I'll post an edit.
