I too agree with Mikaukahn.
I disagree with the others; I really like the background! It's simple and it adds to the charcter. It'd be better if she was lowered a bit though, just enough so that she's not touching the lace at the top.
This character is amazing! Really good pixelling going on here!
Fourthing the background being too contrasted and distracting.
The character is lovely, I particularly like the braided bits of her hair and the skirt and the ribbon going through her cardigan. Smart use of green there, too!
Agreed, although the background is cute, it's rather distracting from the main focus. Lovely colors overall!
Yep, a cleaner backround would make it much more readable.
Excellently pixeled little character anyway. ;)
Quite nice, though I think it would look better without the background and if the character were just a lone sprite.
