There's some really brave choices in there and thernz is either paying attention or has a great intuitive sense for this sort of thing



Some solutions to complex bits and added depth, less single pixels, some really really minor banding. Not much to say, if pixel art was of this standard often I'd be very happy.

Old to new. Nothing drastic.

Wow your edit is subtle, yet really improves readability. I especially love the change to the the sprite's right sleeve. One thing I take away from your work is the strength of 45/90/180 degree-angled clusters.

I should probably participate in one of these...

May I also suggest Magneto from X-men Clone wars as a subject?

Holy crap, you can really tell that sprite was made for the blurry TV screens of the past. I had to pretty much edit every single part of that sprite to optimize the pixel clusters.

There are probably still some banding errors and with my lack of knowledge of both the character and muscle anatomy there are probably errors in that too. :P I think it's a huge improvement on the original sprite, though.
