Now he is some sweet, maybe heavier?
Hey, your baddie looks nice! :)
In particular, you did a thing that was lingering in my mind: you gave depth to the track-guards by adding dark lines under them... that's definitely a thing I should add to the original design (I guess I'll add just one line, though) and that will give me the chance to upload a newer edit that has also a couple of updated pixels.

Anyway he is nice!
Thank you!

That's really well achieved, seeing as your path into pixelling is hard work, rather than talent. Your concept of shading, nice colour ramps and such is on a good level, i'd say. Also dithering is working well.
I did not expect comments... this good! :o
Probably my actual skills looked better than they are thanks to the simplicity of the piece... but, hey, your words are very encouraging and much appreciated! :-*

May I suggest that you polish this a bit further with, say, a bigger piece? For exampe, to take some lines from the lineart thread and color them? That way, you'll have a good opportunity to study the original lines, as well as an opportunity to get quality feedback from us, the forum members <3
That's a good idea, although, on the other hand, also sketching is something I have to improve on. Well, what can I say... if I some lineart over there turns out to be particularly appealing, I might well give it a try. Let's see...

You know we'll be standing by ready with the best critique and edits we can manage :D
I have no doubt about it ;)

Right now all I can say is Move On! That is, if you feel like it. :]
I definitely do. Only problem is lack of time and energies :( And just today coding is going to burn my brain cells a lot :blind:, so I'm afraid I'll have to hold my lust for pixelling :'(

So, here's the promised (last) update: .
Now, as Jad said, it's really time to move on! ;D
