Is a chocobo for them easter shenanigans.

Edit: fixed a single stray transparent pixel that somehow had gone unnoticed.
Edit 2: Minor fix around the (chocobo's) left leg. There are other fixes I could be doing (I did this quite quickly in 2.5h) but I'm going to leave it at that.

Can't stop loving this! Love the bounce that goes with it.

I've also been finding​ that with the yellows.  Usually they end up looking more brown and sometimes green!  It's crazy. But this is a great way to take it.  Thanks again!

Thank ya kindly, fellas.

Yeah, I have grown rather fond of avoiding straight color ramps (aside from maybe pure grays). With yellows in particular I tend to go towards warmer colors, because darker shades of yellow often times look muddier. Since most of the pixel stuff I do leans towards more "cartoony/gamey" look, a warm orange fits better than say, "dark goldenrod" (#B8860B, or sRGB:[184,134,11]). This then naturally leads to reds, which mixes well with black, so it can be easily used for AA in a piece like this.

Of course, I'm no expert on color theory or AA, but I'm glad that my work is of help.

Anything with little music notes makes me pretty happy!  

I love how you Anti-Aliased the feathers with the red and orange.  I think that was the right call for keeping the color count down.  I've been trying to understand A.A. better and this alone gives me a good/better idea how to use it!  Thanks, MrFariator!  Great job!
