Hello Pixelation, guess I'll stat with an introduction. For a long time I've been nothing more than a silent shadow around the pixel art scene: admiring from afar, so to speak. Now I've decided to get back on the internet, despite living in an area a few miles out of town that has no high speed... I have a mobile connect stick and 500mb on my Android - so I'll probably be very erratic in my activity. Basically, I'm not using my old acounts for anything anymore - too much spam tied up to the old email, amongst oher reasons. Not that I don't have a hugely full inbox now, but that's only because I check it probably once a month and usually only the first few...
Anyway, the next order of business is an introductory piece of art, based on the restrictions of the old palette challenge I found. Looking at the results these pallettes were producing I decided to make one - but it's a dead topic so I'm posting here instead. Hope I made my own style instead of sucking up influences to create a Frankenstein mish-mash (like my computer)...

I'll call him Giovani Romani, because everyone else named theirs'. C+C greatly encouraged.

Also, one last thing... anyone know a good, free program to edit pixels on Android phones ??? .Pic's free version gave just a few colours, ugly, too-saturated colours that I think I last saw on NES. And no colour picker... because I can't shop online right now, and Google doesn't tie in the Marketplace with my Bell account.

Just realized I said the colours were ugly. Let me rephrase: They're limited and ugly for MOST purposes.

I think you need to raise his nostril up a bit and fix his ear so it doesn't look like it's sticking out.

I think I fixed those issues, and a couple others I noticed...

That's much better.  I see you gave him sideburns too.  I didn't even notice they were missing.
