Game characters / Pixel art style

on: February 27, 2017, 01:30:14 pm
These are for a game I am working on. Don't forget to zoom in to see better the details.

So what I am asking is which style do you prefer. Above I have two different characters with different art style and below I have the same character with different art style.

If you choose the art style could you please tell me how to improve it?  :y: :y: :)

Hmm. I'd have to say the original is cleaner and more "pixelart" looking. The hard gradient doesn't have the charm something like, say, one of those squiggly cartoon shine effects might. Try not to use gradient tools if you can help it, I don't like to rule anything out in art but gradient tools as a whole tend to not look great. ESPECIALLY in pixelart.

My thoughts exactly, yet at the second case that I shown above the one with gradient really beats the other one. Maybe, the other just needs improvement..
