well the inside of the wheels could also use some dithering. and you could use dithering to make patterns on the tires.

pers. i think dithering metal makes it look old and rusty, witch is fine if that's what u're going for, but i don't think it would go well w. this one (though i agree it might look kewl on th tire). Might wanna try going [4] - [3] - [4] - [3] - [2] - [3] - [2] - [1] - [2], 4 being the darkest color and 1 the brightest.... if that makes ANY sense to you :) really like the sprite though

You should try working without too Bo. Your recent work (especially the fighter) all suffers from over dithering...

Dropped a color, I think.

Changed the grays to a greenish tint so they could be used to help shade those barrels or thrusters.



Touched up some other areas to show how the colors could be used to help AA.

There are several reasons to avoid dithering. Really, it only works well on larger sprites, backgrounds, etc. I wouldn't use it on a sprite any smaller than this one. Also, animation is deemed just about impossible. Animated dithered sprites tend to look horrid.
