I like this one. I agree with Jalonso though. During the lineart process one of the staples for creating great pixel art is that your lines be only 1 pixel thick. Will help you to eliminate uneeded jagged edges in your future pieces. I'm no expert mind you, but I've read every tutorial on this site lol. Knowledge is power. Overall it's a great entry. This is a quick edit strictly for showing what I mean about the line work. By no means is this perfect nor am I trying to discourage. I just love the design and since there is much time left, you may be able to refine it. And with you only using 17 colors you can still pick out a couple more to get some aa in there. http://i.imgur.com/f9XWtwvl.png[/IMG
I think it'd look quite nice with a few less stray black pixels.
In future work try to be cleaner and more precise in your pixelling. Its kinda messy and uncontrolled.
Pretty good piece, Is this for the weekly?
