he's saying the shading was done with photoshop or something along those lines that gave them a blurry edge.
the lineart itself is pretty cool

 It's pixel art alright. He looks cool. Add a shine to the glass, illuminate.

This IS pixel art.



Nice lines though man, but do the shading pixel by pixel, no brushes.

Andy = wrong

so yeah, that out of the way, please read up on pixel techniques etc, this type of thing is not pixel art and does not belong.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Haha, no offense, but that would not be good aa, even if handmade.

Anyway, Fifth, stick around and look at some other stuff. Your lineart does qualify as pixelart, but i would suggest looking into anatomy a bit. Before doing cartoony stuff (breaking rules of anatomy to a certain extend) you have to at least have a fairly ok grasp of anatomy.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

No one check, but it has 254 unique colors, unless he is very patient, I'm sure he didn't aa it himself.
