first, welcome to the boards, i hope you enjoy your time here :D

now, to the sprite.  you have managed to avoid at least three of the classic pitfalls of new pixelers, and kudos on that.  you wonrked in a manageable size, did not pillowshade, and did not rigidither.  The sprite is a bit stiff, altohugh not bad for a first try.  the green colors arent awefull, but trying a different palette with a broader understanding of color would probably do you good, check the rest of the forums for some very basic color concepts with regards to pixelling that i think from seeing this youll be able to grasp pretty quickly.

once again, wlecome to pixelation :P
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.
