don't save as .jpg.

Save as .png
Don't save as .gif if you're using Paint, otherwise it's ok :D

Still JPGed. Photobucket will automatically convert bmps to jpgs if that's the format you're uploading them with.

Anatomy, dither, AA, proper coloring and shading

take a look at some references, bodies that have like the stance you want to get, works, and such stuff.

Oh, well i know Anatomy since i draw but with pixels its different my main problems are making a line for the body of the spirit that im going to draw this is what im trying to draw eventually
<--an char set
<--and a battle spirit wish i need to draw all hes movements like running slashing getting hit and so on
main point, i don't know how to pixel the body lines and how to color it and especially i cant pixel their hair well and by the way those i didn't draw my self, their from RPG maker community their dont belong to me their examples.
my problems in exactly drawing them is:
-always when i make the body it goes wrong like the pixel lines are not shading the spirit as i want it to,
problems in coloring
-i don't know where to put the lighter point on the hair the body and and pretty much everything
can someone explain me how it is that you decide where the light point is and once you put it it looks smoothly it doesn't to me no matter how much times i try, help please im tierd of all the mistakes that completely ruin my char and the battle spirits  :'(
