My art looks awkward, how can I fix it

Hello I have watched a few pixel art tutorial and yet every time I try to draw something it ends up looking awkward, can anyone offer criticism on my work?

Its best to post your artwork at the original size, so 1 pixel stays on pixel if that makes sense.

one of the main things that feel wrong is the pose, it feels like the goblin would fall over.
Put the legs apart a bit, and position the arms in a more interesting way.

I think your goblin just needs some more work put into it.

Use the tutorial only as a starting point, then add more things like :
 
 - weapons
  - armor
  - mouth
  - colors
  - background

Googling goblins and orcs should get you some inspiration

good luck !  : )
