that is some wicked looking style you got there.
I luv the big headed-ness, makes them look cute.
I especially like the monkey looking ones..
Are you going to animate them?

The first thing I think when I see this is: Gotta catch em' all. Adorable little creatures. I especially like the one with the tiger body and the evil japanese man head.

I really like a lot of the designs, but I think in terms of the pixel work, a lot of them could be further refined - makes me want to edit them. :P

On some of them, the height of the far leg makes it look as though they aren't standing on even ground according to the view. Such as the yellow horsething and green birdthing next to it.
Also, some of them don't seem to match the perspective of the others, such as the firey looking bird in the second row as well as the yellow one directly beneath it. It looks almost completely side on.
Also the red dragon has this problem, but it's less evident due to the hind legs' raisedness.
Some of the creatures only have one set of legs on the near side, with the far side limbs being strangely absent.
My favorite is the middle one in the last line.
And the fish.
The wasp's got a flat butt.
Aside from those things these are very nice, and keep up the good work.

I think some of these are neat, esp the first two (from left to right) in the last row.
Overall I wish they were more polished.
But good job overall, and welcome to pixelation.

I'd love to learn a little more about each of these creatures, if you have time.  Very cute! :)

Aww! I love these little things! ^_^
So adorable and amazingly well designed! They look pretty flawless to me. Once again, I love them!

Oh, and yes, do tell us a bit about each one of them if you can.  :)
And are they for a game or something? Or did you create them just for fun?
