Hi!

This is a really messed up pixelart from all the edits! way to many unnecessary colours and to much highlights...
especially the skin. I mean, if you take a look on your own skin, its not shining like you have sunoil all over your body(normally)
If you take away much of the highlights it helps to get the small details to look sharper, you get better shading and more
contrasts. I made a small edit to show you what i mean:

Old: Edit:

I changed the colours, I shortened her skirt a little cos I think she looks more like a farmergirl then a prettygirl  ;D
But most of all i got rid of the messed up a.a and highlights to give her a more cleaner look.

Hope its of any use!

Its still improperly outlined. In this laters version it just doenst look as nice as it could because the black adds a too high contrast, so reduce it to something brighter, even a darker grey would work.

Maybe you could've brought that a little more....subtle?

Coffee:
The thing is, what's usually done is either no outlines, or outlines that MATCH the colours of the sprite.
For example: On the brown hair you take a darker brown, and outline it with that. And at places where the hair becomes lighter, you can also use lighter outlines.
Here, take a look at the outlines of my tree:

It's kind of the idea to 'adapt' the outlines to the sprite.
(In case you didn't know; the forum has a built in zoom function. Just click on an image to zoom in on it.)

Edit:
Here's an edit on coffee's edit:
==>==>

I changed the outline, but also made the skin tones more vibrant.

What happened to the beautiful colors?? 

I decided to extend this post-

When you change the colors you are changing the style, its all whited out now and isn't as vibrant.

yes, i apologise, i am a very blunt person though.

opacus' edit is perhaps the best in terms of outlining, colors, however does look a little 2 dimensional.

But it's also less hurtful to the eyes. The colours used in the current version are just a hit in the face with a sledgehammer.
They need to be toned down, atleast a bit.

The initial, first, version had less saturated colours. Don't jump back to these but keep it similar to that.
