I got bored and decided to try my hand at pixel art. I spent a few hours creating a humanoid figure on a 800x600 canvas and then decorated it. I would like some C&C.
Please remember that I am an extreme newbie at this. No, I am not asking you to sugarcoat your criticisms - I am just saying that I might not understand some of them.
Shading was by far the hardest part for me. I tried to consistently keep my light source above and slightly behind the person, but I'm sure there are discrepancies in places.
