The main cast of a turn-based RPG I want to make some day. Trying to aim for the look and feel of an SNES-era game, but I won't lose sleep if it doesn't quite make the grade(or if the colours aren't exactly the same as from the SNES pallette, etc.)

 ...It's a girl. In a school-uniform. And she's not wearing glasses.

The robot has one big unicycle wheel, the yellow parts are grabby metal claws.

The "wizard" is God, and the "tiara" are big, fluffy eyebrows.

The creature is a Kappa, with her leafy hair pointed up in spikes.

It could be a matter of shading, outlines, contrast, or something else. I'm not a spriter, so take my advice for what it's worth. Contrast might be the main culprit.

The boy is the most readable. I definitely have trouble with the others.
The wheeled robot: can't make out the volumes other than the head and wheel. Is it one wheeled or 2-wheeled, with the visible wheel protruding forward? Is it bike-like? What are the grey and yellow parts?
Wizard: mostly ok except hands (folded arms?) and the thing on his head (tiara?).
Does the boy wear glasses? I just noticed.
Is the creature a bird? Guess I see a beak and feathers, not sure.

By comparison, your av is very readable, so I'm sure you can improve them =)

Also check those. I'll post more if I find any, I'm sure there have been some small sprites in the gallery recently.

Do edit this bg! (click EDIT and upload new file)

I don't know what to tell you. The character sprites aren't cluttered or complicated. I'm not sure how you're having a hard time reading the details.

I do agree aboout the background, though. It was a last-minute choice, but I agree now that it was probably unnecessary.

Not very readable, and the background makes it worse :(
