I'm all about the journey, but that seems kind of bad. D: What program are you using? I know that pixelling lowres faces with many colors can be quite the timesink in trying to convey everything you want to convey (especially if you're attempting a likeness), but usually it's best to focus on the whole holistic effect of the piece before your brain turns to mush and you need fresh eyes, in my opinion.

I'm going to do some things based on those generators, give me a moment. :)

The deformed race that resembles the angels of earth mythology. They change genders as they age. They are notoriously laid-back. Their government is a meritocracy. They are regarded virtually as gods by some races. Another race uplifted them to sentience. They come from a high-gravity, watery, resource-rich world that has many moons.

Might make a topic for and finish this.

Two hours by the file timestamps.  Some of that was spent browsing the web, eating snacks, and the like, but most of it was pixelling.  Since I can't point to any other useful result from that time I have to conclude that I'm absurdly slow.  Program was mtPaint; an ok program but nothing special.

Nice images btw, both the man with gun and the one based on the generators.  Do you plan to finish the one with the species description?

was just a theory test. I want to do some original stuff like this soon, not just a mario rip-off.

Actually! I just have a username savageorange on various sites and decided to fix my wo-ful lack of avatar.

Your Mind May Vary ;)
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

Cow, I'm afraid the gun arms are, though beautifully rendered and pixelled, completely wrong. The guns are tiny, out of perspective and rotation in relation to the grip. You'll need to completely redraw either the hands or the gun (I propose the latter) and this time use a real life reference point for how that shape should cohere with the perspective.

I agree. I feel a little over my head here trying to salvage this instead of just doing it over, but I'll give it a shot. I went and bought a toy gun for reference, though I probably didn't use it as much as I should have.

I drew this, but I don't know if it's a step in the right direction:

Marginal changes like increasing the size of the gun/changing index finger rotation are easy fixes when I get to pixelling it. But I think I should maybe just start from scratch so I can get the hand rotation to be natural, it will probably be easier with my new toy gun at my disposal. I'm not sure yet.

It's one of these times where an actual photo for reference helps a lot.
