example on how to get higher contrast without making the bright parts look so over exposed. actually I dont understand why dont look closely at kruts edit pretty early in this thread. it shows how to fix some fundamental problems of this piece and it seems almost like you completly ignored it.

Wow. You actually made the contrast even worse. Are you actually paying attention to the crits and suggestions, or did you simply ask for c&c for shits and giggles?

Indeed there is no improvement in readability at all.


I made a small, simple edit bringing down the colourcount from 10 to 6 and also increased the contrast as well as added some aa (pretty much what others have done already)
Here you can see an animation between your sprite and my edit and if this does not make it clear that your sprite does not read well at all, then I really don't know.


There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Wow... amazing what a different set of colors can do to something. It's the same shape, same features and all that changes is colors!

Excellent teaching aid, I'd say.

Well i changed the shading and added aa as well, but the basic form is the same, yes.

I understand how someone might not like things that read well, have good palettes, so on, but honestly, I don't know what other comments you're likely to get than repeats of the above. So if you don't find those useful, I don't think there's anything else to say about this sprite.

Here, I just did it [if I wasn't at work, I'd post it] and if you use dark red for the outside edges and use a little AA like ptoing's has, a little less highlight on the lip and forehead and you've got your pink critter but still good contrast
