Hopefully improved on my old style a bit. I might get back into pixel art. Using GrafX2 for the first time. Good program for the most part.
I like the tasty off-white combined with red. The reflected colors on the steel looks good as well. You could use some of the colors for AA and remove the banding if wanted.
Thanks! I've been out of pixel art for quite a long time.
It was about 8 hours of work. Ended up scrapping a lot of ideas and testing things that didn't quite work out.
