I noticed all my pictures were characters, roughly 100 x 100px, and about 15 colours, with backgrounds. I didn't want to get stuck in a "comfort zone" so here I've tried a vehicle in orthographic (i.e. no perspective) with a higher resolution and colour budget, plus a transparent background.

I would appreciate strict C&C; please don't hold back. I am interesting in improving.

Edit 1: Added machinery under vehcile, and slight fog between wheels, as the solid black area was a bit boring and lazy (C&C from user masonmason22).

Edit 2: Reworked tyres as suggested by Mandrill. Here is what they used to look like.

Really cool !
You have a good eye for shadows, congratulations

Thanks a lot!

Thank you. I was a bit worried about the gradient at the back making it look a bit round; hopefully it didn't destroy the chunky look of the truck.

Thanks a lot! Sorry for the late reply; I was incredibly sick and hospitalised for a week

gennoveus (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/20/2017 15:23

Thank you! I did originally plan to animate it but unfortunately ran out of energy.

without a doubt a cool truck

Amazing lighting! I though it was animated. Anyway, it looks great.

Great shading!

Neat design and excellent pixels!

gennoveus (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/6/2017 23:29

Added the changes suggested by Mandrill. Sorry for turning this into a WIP!

gennoveus (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/6/2017 21:15

Thanks upper0! I was worrying that I'd overdone it a bit.

gennoveus (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/6/2017 21:14

Thank you, Mandril! Though I feel I have a long way until I real metal slug levels!   I experimented with different tyres; are either of these an improvement? I think I'm not doing a very good job communicating the roundness of the tyre.

P.S. How do I show an image in a comment? I've seen some people do it in older posts but not sure how it's done. Is it still possible or has it been disabled?

upper0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 8/6/2017 08:58

It's look amazing, i love your dithering. good job!

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 8/6/2017 06:49

Looks really great, could be a set piece for a Metal Slug game!

The only thing that looks a bit off are the extremely dark tires. A lighter midtone with more details could help to improve the piece even more.
