Here is my rough draft of cyborg noodle from the gorillaz so far

The challenge is to pixel a machine, not a cyborg TheKingDwarf.

In regards to improving it, I'd suggest not dithering. Dithering creates a rugged surface, something which the skin isn't.

Really good animation. I like it a lot!

I assume it's a mechanical person, something like that?

Yea. I imagined him as a mechanical rouge. Haven't been able to do anything on him or anything else for that matter. Really sick today.
