Looks good.
You don't have to 2x it though, the forums have a built in zoom function.

Personally, I don't see anger in your nerd. His mouth, by the shape, looks like a smile more than a frown. I was gonna suggest giving him some eyebrows, but it looks like you wouldn't want to distract from the glasses. Maybe you could angle the glasses like you would eyebrows. The AA you use is a bit wonky in parts, like the chin line on his face has a couple places where the AA seems to be backwards.

Erm, tryin to make the girl angry.. Id personally focus more on the face, add a dropshadow and level the eyes for concentration.. Dont know whether its goin off your style, but I think its a shame not to use the intirity of your palette.

I really like this, just doesn't need to be in x2 imo. heres in at 100%, plus what it'd look like without the bg.



For the nerd, I just think you should alter the shape of the glasses.. something like this.. And loose the shine, it doesnt make sense.



I've not got anything interesting to type here..

Exactly what I was thinking of Terley. The nerd reads much better now.

i really appreciate that you folks take time to edit my stuff.
You are right, the nerd looks really better now. I will try to improve it, but i'm quite busy right now.

For the girl, i'm not that sure with the little grey pixels on the face. I tried to dither too but it looked weird.
I think i can do something, but i will have to search more.
I did another one in the same style, i will try to post it as soon as i can.

I really like your style, hate. It's like hipster pop magazine illustration taken to the pixel medium, wich is actually kinda refreshing.
Not much to say about these two sprites, they're cute and work fine, except maybe that Poindexter looks more nervous than angry.

Post more stuff!
