Sooo this is most DEFINITELY a work in progress. I'm going from a hand drawn picture (which i'll post as soon as I get to a scanner) and I'm just trying to make a girl wearing a hoodie. This is totally a new style for me (well, any is really since I'm new to this whole thing) so I need some input. Her nose is the main thing I'm not very happy with on the face..and the lips I guess too. Also, the shading on the sweatshirt...I'm not sure how to do it without it looking like embroidery. Just generally any advice would be extremely useful. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the suggestions! The reason I made it so big was because it's supposed to be a 3/4 view. I'm just experimenting with colors at this point, but i'll keep it in mind.
(And by the way, I'm a girl  :P)

BTW--There's an update! Any more suggestions are welcome as usual!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You really helped me figure out that hair. It's no perfect, but I think it's improved some
I also changed the collar a bit to make it more..swooshy? It fits around the face better. And the glasses are bigger than before. Anyways, continued suggestions are always helpful, and thanks again Eyecraft for the advice!

Here's an update on the progress of my little man
I tried to make him less flat, and remove the arm sectioning, and I changed the colors to be less bright, but I still feel it could use improvement. As you can see I also changed the tunic, goggle, and hair colors around to get a feel for a different set of colors. Thanks again!

7321551: My boyfriend suggested we do the 320x240 size, and we'll probably go with that. The things you sent me are probably about the level of detail I'll be working with. I'll probably end up doing that, Thank you!

Kaelaar: We're still not stuck on that. At this point we're using google docs to document the entireity of the game, but we're still ironing all the details out as we speak. And thank you! I was unsure of how it would go but I'm proud of my little hunter. I was trying to add a center lightsource without making him look fat, so I'm trying to figure out how that's going to work out. I'm currently using graphics gale as my pixel program and it's working great! Thank you for your input!

7321551: Thank you!!! I really appreciate the effort you put into that. It looks amazing! I'll try and implement that--the lighting was definitely needing to be fixed.
EyeCraft: My boyfriend and I are still working out the resolution. We may have to increase the character's size to fit in a 640x480 resolution game, which I think is what we're leaning towards. The settings I think is mostly going to be a mountain town in caves and mountains and dungeons, but we're unsure on the specific theme (we were also thinking kind of steam punk as a general theme). But that's all a work in progress, and we were just sure we wanted our main guy to look like that. I don't think there are really any color restrictions, but for the character we'd like to stick to greens and browns and blue for the goggles, yellow for the belt. The main character will be "treasure hunting" and he's going to be carrying weapons. Again, we're not sure on complete specifics but I'll let you know any updates I get. Thank you again for your help, that's awesome!

Thanks to both of you!
Lizzrd: Do you mean like, delete some of the darker lines that separate the torso and the arms? I'm just wanting to clarify what you meant.  :)

Hey all
I'm just starting to make a treasure hunting type game with my boyfriend and I'm doing the art for the game, including the characters. This is my first time doing any kind of pixel art so critique and tips are both greatly appreciated.
That's my first attempt at a character which I'm hoping will eventually resemble:

I'm not terribly pleased about my shading, but I'm totally new at this so again, please help me make this usable! I don't want him to look exactly like that, obviously my proportions are aimed to be different as this is supposed a top down 3/4 kind of game (like Pokemon) rather than face on. Thanks for taking the time to help me with this!
