My challenge entry.  The letters aren't the best...

The second and final evolution are kind of similar.

Bad dithering...

i think you should try to work on lightsource/perspective/linework. Not that the linework shouldn't be black, but the linework is a bit sloppy in some places, and some more detail may give people the feeling they can watch at it for quite some time and still find new details. Maybe people can help you at the forum section of PJ, i learned quite a lot there actually

I did put the floor shadow, maybe clear your cache?  It's there.  Thanks, btw.

I agree with Christopher about the outlines, also the fingers/claws are a little awkward. But nice job on the shading.

Floor shadow on the third is needed.
I actually find the black outlines fit in well for this pixel. Too much dithering for Pokemons so the black outline isn't too bad.

You need to learn to not use the dark black lines, or to take them out in your peices.

Ok, I fixed the feet, made them look like tennis shoes.  And added that last shadow.  And fixed the letters so they weren't so fat.  Gave him a little tummy too.

I think at the moment there's a consistency and perspective problem. On the third one, it seems to be facing sideways, but the feet is in iso. The arms are bigger than each other, unless you were going for that. The second looks just like the third one, if not bigger, but facing forwards which you pointed out in your description. Also, if you plan on using a shadow underneath the first two, try adding it to the third one, unless it's flying. And I know I'm contradicting myself, but Pokemon sprites do use some dithering, but only for certain spots that really need it. Try using textures for the dinosaur skin.
