I would definitely suggest working to add some animation tools

I wouldn't say that, it seems like you liked the character and the game he's from a lot, and you conveyed that feeling well with your art. I would honestly consider getting feeling into art one of the hardest things to do, and its something a lot of artists lose track of in the race to develop technique. Techniques are important, but they have to be built around a solid emotional core, which your original drawing definitely has!

some simple adjustments to the timing can add a lot of tension and weight

before you get too concerned with muscles, make sure the bones of the drawing are solid. mostly as long as the pelvis and ribcage are in their proper place, everything else will work out. Once the bones are good, the layering of the muscles makes much more sense, and the drawing will have more weight to it.

Hey friend! I did a quick draw over your original sprite.

I think the main thing you wanna focus on is the drawing itself of the sprite. Ignoring pixelart techniques altogether, your original drawing (as in the way you rendered the character using linework alone) is lacking a few things.

with a good drawing you mainly want to convey 3 things: the 3d form of the character, the gesture of the character's pose, and lastly the character's personality. Getting more form in your drawings comes from just doing life studies and getting the mileage in there. For gesture, you wanna start with a line of action (the orange line in my edit) which will usually just be a simple curve, then build the drawing around that line, as though the character's mass is resting on that line. As for the personality, i think you completely nailed that in your original version. The way his balance defies physics definitely suits the nature of the character, and you conveyed his relaxed, lazy persona really well!

once you've got the drawing solid, then you can start adding shading and technique to make it all polished and nice

hope that was helpful!

ok i think a lot of the problem is that my laptop screen's colours are really fucked up. i've spent the last few days trying to fix it but i think there's no solution  :(  so i just had to adjust the colours manually by comparing them between my pc and phone, bleh.
