Really love your concept art, especially the eyes. Except the eyes are totally different on your pixel art version ! I would try to make them more similar to your original idea (i did a small edit below) ; also he looks much fatter in the pixel art compared to the concept art, you could try "trimming" him a bit.



Also, please do post your art at 1x zoom so it makes edits easier, the forum has a built-in zoom function when you click on an image :)
Half a noob figuring out stuff.

I'm trying to get the idea behind this, purple guy in a hazard suit? That's as far as I got.

Other than this, fairly appealing design, concept art is rickety but the details are big and it translated well to pixel art. Animation needs way more polish, you'll get there but dude, just don't call it done yet :) Looks like he comes from the world of Rayman, maybe Pikmin, we'll have to see more of that universe to say for sure.
