That is a lame excuse, sorry. Mickeys eyes are flat back with perhaps the triangle thing for shading. And that actually is possible to make more emotive than blue ovals with highlights and shadows, which look nothing like eyes in the first place. To me the more I look it the more it looks like he has his eyes closed and is wearing blue eyeshadow.

Anyway, I made an edit:

Hah yeah, does look like blue eye shadow to me now. Nice little portrait shot though, Taka. Yet FYI, those blue eyes go bug the heck out of me.

No need to apologize, I was hitting a wall when I tried different things with the eyes and basically gave up, it really helps to get some fresh perspective. How does this look:

Pretty soon this is gonna need its own thread. :P

Eyes are definitely an improvement. Have to say, though, his right arm just looks odd without any foreshortening, but I suppose that's to go along with the paper-cut-out style, or something like that.

I'll make an edit tomorrow, especially if this gets its own thread.

I don't think I'll make a thread, not for this at least.
Don't get me wrong, I'm very grateful for the c+c but I don't think there's a whole threadsworth of content left in this piece. If you still want to offer an edit by all means go ahead, just keep in mind the flat style and basic character design are quite set in stone at this point, also this is only used in one shot of the opening cutscene.

edit-
Maybe we should have a casual pixel art megathread where people can just post whatever and discussions just naturally take place?

Might be a nice idea.

Anyway, new eyes look better, but the light pupils look freaky. I think it does look better with black ones (I tried it).
Also I think his ear is too far forward on his head, should be a bit further back.

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

Okay here.

Took Ptoing's suggestions as well as made a bit of a suggestion of my own, basically just rotate the arm to a more natural, and I hope less odd-looking, position. I don't know if this will work with both layers rotating, however. Whatever I didn't list here, you'll probably notice.
