Ok had 10 mins to try editing it.


Increased contrast between the main colours.
Tried a bit of dithering
Quickly changed some colours in the eye.

When  get more time im going to AA. Then if i get the hang of that i'll go back to the lines and recolour it with the light direction TeenIce suggested (love that shading!)

-I lowered the saturation.  You had almost every color set to 100.

Hehe, paints telling me it was set to 240, ill tone them down so they dont burn your eyes out in the next edit XD

I think you should chose colors before shading and adding AA (at least that one you will use as basic color). ;) Btw. read topics about AA practice.

On my slider, it's just 0-100 in percentage.

You can use Graphicsgale or Promotion. They both are good and have trial verions ^^ (GG's being nearly complete)

I prefer Graphicsgale. I was using Promotion but its only 30 day trial and there are some problems with saving to GIF files.

If you're having problems with colors - copy them from someones work :P

oh wow I didnt read the whole topic I jst editted someone elses edit. sry bout that.  :-[

well Omegasonic I wouldn't be atall concerned about AAing at the moment, your work needs more contrast imo, not to say everything you do needs high contrasting colours just especially with pixel art it's nice to see a bit more depth. there's hardly any difference between each shade with just gives it a flat look, whether your shading/lightsource is correct without the contrast there just isn't any depth.

You've used a straight forward dithering technique to smoothen the transition of each shade, which isn't atall necissery I like the phrase 'only dither where absolutely necissery'.

looking good though that edit should help. But don't be too concerned about AAing, its more for finishing pieces imo, your main concern should always be shape, lighting and colour.
I've not got anything interesting to type here..
