One of the merchant ghosts from our game Kharon's Crypt.

The game is inspired by The legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons along with other GBC games, and we wanted it to look retro, so I'm using the Game Boy Color palette (plus a few colors we added).

Hi Gennoveus, thank you for your advice! I have to draw more merchants for the game in the future, I'll certainly follow your suggestion.

That's much better; thank you for re-uploading! I very much like the design of the character and the way you have drawn the cloth. C&C if you are interested: The mixed resolutions of the character / clouds are a bit jarring. Also, you have many areas in the image where you could have made the dithering less harsh by introducing colours already present in other parts of the image. Here's an example of what I mean - I very quickly redid some of the shading on the cloth using only colours that were already in the image. If you prefer the dithered look, then it might look more natural if you limited your palette so that dithering wasn't just an aesthetic choice but a necessary one. Just a thought!
