First off, I'm glad you're trying pixel art! Many people get too intimidated to even try, so kudos to you for putting yourself out there. That being said, I think you should work on getting the basics down first. I suggest So You Want to Be a Pixel Artist. It's a very good, fairly straightforward runthrough of some of the most common beginner mistakes.

The winking animation is very cute, although I don't know what's going on with his hair ^^;

-(6_6)- Ooh, you're right. I'll fix the shading in the next picture. But yeah, my hair is actually blue -(O3O)-.


Ok, next animation! On this I fixed the hair, and it's supposed to be a troll/derp/who me? face.

There's still not really any definition to the hair. Have you tried looking at hairstyle references?


Edit: I'm one of those people who learns better by example, so I thought you might benefit from my take on the hair.

I assumed you were going for a spiky sort of look? I tried to keep it as close to the original shape as possible. It's not exactly perfect, but maybe it gives you a few ideas?


I also tweaked the colors a lot. A good rule of thumb is never go near 100% saturation. Also, if you can't tell where certain colors begin or end when you zoom out, you definitely need more contrast.


Edit2: Came back and did more edits because I felt like I didn't do the hair justice. Then somewhere along the way they became a bloopersaiyan.

Who's a fan of firearms? The 5 on the bottom row (not including the green laser ones) I made pretty recently. I plan for most of these to be in my project.

I think I will want portraits and battle sprites to be 2D and stick to pixel art for overworld not 100%sure but pretty sure its easier to make pixel art for overworld sprites, events and maps and stuff.
