Very Good! That's one cute-green-round head baby XD

Awesome points made Maestro ans stichy, and certainly worth paying attention to. However, for Spider Boy this is an amazing overall improvement in style, technique and color choices that should'nt go unnoticed. Great job!

To further elabourate on what Stitchy said, when starting off on a pixel piece, you should never use a black (dark grey) outline unless the piece actually warrants it. Let's use the alien as an example. You have used four primary colours to make up that hideous thing, two in which are superb choices, as the other two are highly questionable. Your first primary highlight colour is a desaturated, light purple, the secondary colour is a more saturated, darker purple, the third colour is an ugly looking greyish/brown colour and the fifth is black (dark grey). The third and fourth colours should give a proper transition from the first and second. So...instead of using those choices, the third primary should be a darker shade of purple in comparison to the secondary colour, and the fourth colour (main outline) should be an even darker purple to compliment the third primary.

*NOTE* Each individual portion of a sprite should warrant its own unique colour pattern (to include the general outline). For instance, you wouldn't use the same purple outline on the baby as you did the alien. This is because the baby is in its own seperate element. The outline of the baby should be a darker, flesh toned colour (preferrably brown).

Moving on now. The mouth of the alien gives absolutely no perception of depth as it is just one single colour. This is the reason why we like to dither from lighter shades to the darker shades, it gives to impression of depth.

It makes me giggle. The baby's little eyes are great. The lighter shading around the part where the lower jaw and the inner mouth meet is a little weird and unnecessary, and most of the black outlining could be removed there as well. The outlining on the alien where the light source hits could also be improved to be more like the baby's, and I'm really not liking the alien's right arm thingy. Overall, though, this is a nice little piece. <333
