I'm with fatalis. Try and really push yourself to create something unique with the robot before you move on to something new.

Still, you're just editing what I did :) Try and come up with your own look for the eyes and the head, and the body, taking into account the things that I said, rather than just mimicking my edit. Right now, he's almost exactly the same as my edit, save for a few changes. My changed were to give you a better idea of how to define your creation and how to make it make more structural sense, know what I mean?

Try to do more of your own thing :) You're making progress, but I want to see that YOU can do your own thing, but just copy mine :)

I can't say I care for the head. Try to change it up, especially the face. The eye isn't working for me.

Why a brown robot? He looks like cardboard.  ??? Also, maybe try some hue shifting:



I haven't changed any of your pixels around, just the colours. But believe me the pixels still need a lot of work. If he is supposed to be a metallic robot, surely he'd be more reflective (unless of course, he really is made of cardboard). Also, there are a lot of places that seem very jaggy, and generally, I just don't understand the design of the character. Why have you chosen to make him look the way he does? He looks a bit deformed  :B

That's still oh so close to before.  You've just changed the colors and lopped off a few parts.  Also, changing that repulsor (secondary booster) so its vertical wasn't a really good idea, since there is no longer any way for the robot to counteract the throwback from firing projectiles....
Start from scratch and try something ENTIRELY new and original..you'll get more out of it. :D

I probably should have elaborated, but I was trying to suggest that you look through a few pages of the image search I posted for inspiration to create something new/original.

Here is another edit. I don't know if this is what you guys meant like it or just go with a whole new robot idea? Confusing.

Here it is!



I am not liking the wheels to much, but i almost want to keep it with wheels.
