For a long time I was convinced no matter how hard I tried I would never be an acceptable pixel artist until yesterday I discovered what resizing items can do. Below is the before image, a 64 by 128 sprite, much too big for Byond which I made for my reference. Then, I simply resized him and outlined him. I think the final result is pretty good, however no where near perfect. I need advice on how to correct the anatomy among other things, or hey if you think it looks great or horrible that's fine to say that too, just list reasons.
As always thanks for any and all responses,
