Hello! I have very little experience in PixelArt (this is my second drawing), and I would be very happy if someone could describe my mistakes which at the moment are at work. I guess that I'm very much mistaken in giving volume to the horse and the creation of lighting. Thank you!

P. S Excuse me for my English as is not my native language :)

Have you used any reference for the image so far? If so, providing it could help everyone who wants to say something a lot.

I think the image could use a ton more contrast. Right now the horse has a lot of colors that I can't see without zooming in real close in the body area.

Thanks for the tips! :)  A small update. Changed the color tones on the horse, slightly improved background (Little bit), and partially farm. + various minor fixes

Cool, that's working.  Horse is looking less flat now which is good! I feel the mane and tail could do with the same treatment. I think you could still push the contrast further too.

The background stuff feels like it has a bit too much prominence as well.  The mountain and burning village don't feel as far away as I think you're meaning them to be.
