For my 2D pixel art game I'm in need for more customization assets. There are three main things:
- Hats
- Fighter skins
-Arena levels

All sorts of cool and creative ideas are possible for this :). I've added some examples below. Mail me at with some of your work and what rates you charge.

No worries about the Karma xD, some nice people helped me when I was starting so I just want to give back to the world a bit.

I didn't use a reference but I did reenact the pose and tried to pay attention to what my body was doing, there's a whole concept of "Acting for animators" that's worth researching. After that was just shifting some parts around and redrawing some other parts.

Drawing out of memory is not inherently a bad thing but if you have some pictures of the pose as reference is better. I kinda advice against making your references on Blender since you would be posing the 3D model out of memory too.

Once you start to understand how light works everything related to drawing becomes easier, it takes a while but once it clicks it's almost constant (And really slow) improvement from there.

Seeing other people's take on your sprite shouldn't make you feel bad about your work (At least not for much time, I would be lying if I say it hasn't happen to me too when looking at other people's work) everything in life is a process and some people have walked an extra mile than us in some things.

As a last advice, you should try to do your next character without outlines, drawing and painting are two different skills and I think you could use some more practice at the painting part of things. If you want to add an extra challenge to it try to draw it with a 2x2px brush instead of a single pixel brush, I'm sure you'll learn a lot from the process.
