So after another loooooong break, I got to do something again :P
It's a generic platformer sprite:

I'd appreciate it if you'd give me some advice and critique to improve this piece of crap :D

2nd one is better.  Add more color though.. Maybe a red scarf?  Also you're going for cute, right?  Maybe add some pink cheeks or nose?

The first one looks like a business suit, the second looks like a poofy winter jacket. Choose accordingly :P I personally like the second one as well as it conveys more depth.
Nice simple character design, and I like the shading as well. One thing I'd do is tweak the hair, which looks like it was burnt. Just a small hint at his tousled hair would do fine. Also, make the contrast between his chin and his scarf clearer.

Well I tried making the scarf more distinguishable and made some other tiny tweaks...

I can't put my finger on the hair though D:

It's easier on the eyes now. For the hair, make it more in clusters instead of cluttered like you have now.
Photocopier: the fact that arne can also code so well

I see...
You mean like this?


@snakesqzns
The red scarf ain't working because the colour blends with the skin ;[ Originally the scarf was red, that's how I found out.
Also I'll think about the nose and cheeks, I even thought about a mouth.

EDIT:
Linx helped me with hair on IRC, thank you Linx! :P


EDIT2:
Another edit lol this time atnas helped me, thank you very much it was enormously helpful!

For sprites this small a dark line is not going to cut it for distinguishing the scarf. You need to change the colour, experiment more with the tone of red if it clashes.
