Similar pixel art as "Clouded Leopard"
Shiba are my favorite dog breed, I figured it was time to make an avi of one. Black and tan (reference) ftw <3 

As usual, I'll end up editing it a million times so feel free to point out things that can be improved :)

 A+ work!

One thing that bugs me slightly is the tangent with the left ear and the top of the head, it should stick out a little bit. 

Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) @ 8/17/2013 22:51

Thank you!

The palette is really not scientific or anything complicated, it's done kinda randomly like "oh this color looks nice, let's keep it" and "should add intermediary tones" xD I think I've reused some colors from the Clouded Panther palette too

 Came here to tell you too that your antialiasing kicks ass :) keep em coming!

Any tip you can share on how you create your palette?

En effet: idéalement, il aurait fallu une couleur de fond plus foncée. Je me suis permis ici une petite entorse à mes principes parce que cet avatar présente deux éléments que j'adore: les shiba et les tons jaunes orangés :3 

Ton cerveau n'est pas du tout raplapla, l'illusion vient certainement du fait que les motifs de la panthère "prennent plus de place" visuellement ^^

 Très beau boulot, un AA très bien maitrisé, maiiis je suis pas fan de la couleur de background choisie (peut être un peu trop clair?).

Y a un truc que je trouve marrant par contre, c'est quand on regarde a part ton chien et ton leopard, on a l'impression que le canvas du chien est plus grand (alors que non). Je me demande a quoi est due l'illusion d'optique :b (c'est peut être juste mon cerveau défaillant xD)

 Very smooth!! That eye is really effective ^^

Your AA: the best.

Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) @ 8/9/2013 21:19

Edited > fixed the top of the head and a few other pixels :)

Gosh, this is beautiful! Your AA skills are above 9000! :O

And just like others said, your art style is similar to Panda's due to which many I times I confused you with him XD

Well, they are adorable dogs :p

A complete reshape of the line wouldn't be needed, though you could do it if you want.

Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) @ 8/9/2013 13:00

Yup! :D Fun fact is that Panda also seems to be in love with shiba dogs, haha

Oki doki, I'll redo the aa here (do you think I should also reshape the line itself?)

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/9/2013 12:52

Super smooth!

RileyFiery (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 8/9/2013 12:51

This is wonderfully smooth.

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/9/2013 12:40

 I'd like to see you do something with varied line weight. Awesome aa as usual 

Peyton (Level 7 Assassin) @ 8/9/2013 12:21

More Panda-esque work, eh? ;)

Looks fantastic though, the ONLY thing I can see that would be improved is the AA on the top of the head
