Well so I'm new here and I think that the only thing I can do to improve my sprites is post n one of the largest pixel art communities. By as hard as you can on me. Here is my disaster:

why does the color get less saturated the lighter it gets? i also think some refining needs to be done to the lines.

Should it be more saturated? Where does it need refining?
Here's the new Mario:

much better, contrast now i think, boosting saturation i think you put the colors close together, im sorry im taking baby steps with you, but it will help you in the future for refrence, also, your outline of the hat near the ear is bit wierd looking

OK here's the new one:
I don't get the first two things you said(contrast,saturation), what should I do to them?
Tanks for your help, keep it coming.

Hey, you speak Spanish natively?  (Es tu primera idioma Espanol?)  (I say this because I saw 'por' in the first message... :P  Maybe just an english typo tho.)

Creo que tu technique para dibujar necesita mejorar.  (I think your drawing technique needs to improve.)  Primero, (Estoy usando el ingles porque no se como se dice la proxima palabra.. (I'm using English because I don't know how to say the next word..))  block out colors, doing simple shading and lighting, and add outlines last, or after it's been blocked out.  And don't restrict yourself to what you've draw first; constantly refine what you've drawn.

Entiendes?  (Do you understand?)
Puedo darte un ejemplo.  (I can give you an example.)

Hasta luego,
Shrike
