This is going to be the game over screen for a game me and a few friends are working on (takes place in the Megaman X universe).
My little brother and I actually collaborated on this. I did the character design, but I asked him to sketch him out (he's probably better than I am when it comes to illustration). After he finished the first sketch, we took turns reworking the lines.
Then I did all the shading, and the simple background.
Initially, I wanted the light to come from below; and I think it is doing that effectively to an extent in some places. But there where a few parts I wasn't too sure on... but, since he's wearing armor, I could play around with the light a bit.
If you guys see anything odd about some of the lighting though, please let me know!
(Also, the large character sprite has 16 colors, and the background has 16 (17 including a transparent color, but that's THE background, so I'm not counting it. :P))
EDIT: Also, I didn't include the text because it isn't really pixel art. :P
