First off, it looks pretty good... Your drawing skill isn't at all bad.

But there are some pixel-art issues to deal with:

1. A lot of lines are jaggy, I'd suggest checking out Derek Yu's tutorial a better understanding - http://derekyu.com/extras/pixel05.html
2. The AA is'nt done right, again I'll refer you to Derek Yu's tutorial, I think it explains things in an excellent way - http://derekyu.com/extras/pixel10.html
3. Don't work on a big image and then make it smaller, start small to begin with.

Good luck...

Step 3 - lineart



Step 4 - begining with simply colors



Step 5 - shading and finish touches - finish but may be not for now.



Tell me guys and gals what you think?
