Pixellingpixellingpixellingaaaaaaaaaaaand it`s done!
Finally. My first finished art ever. Woooohooo. I`m so excited.

Maybe it is still rough in a couple of spots, but I`m too happy with it to come back to work.
I also made it 63x63 for fun one-line symmetry. Of course, I could`ve just move it for one pixel to the left or to the right... But it`s me.
May be it also would`ve been a bit deeper and expressive if I`d added more shades to the red, but... nah.

I want as many comments as possible!

The main purpose of lonely pixels on the mask was creating an illusion of texture, like in the picture below, for example:

Apparently it was failed, though.

Thanks for your opinion! I`m going to remake this picture as my skill grows and I become like it less and less the way it is now. I also think I should add contrast, by the way.
Check it out a couple of months later!

Cool picture. For me, my only concern is the dithering. I dont like the way it is done (i usually dont like dithering). For some places (bottom center) is consistent, for others it is not. I think you could drop it. Also, you could drop some colors. Just my two cents of what i feel.

I appreciate constructive critique so much. In comparison with common "some problems here and there" now I know where the problems are. One day I will make it better.

This is a very solid first piece.  I really like the design as a whole - the shape of the helmet's highly functional, and I'm a fan of the decorations, especially that halo-thing up top.  

That said, there are a couple of small things I think could be improved on - for instance, the beige colors of the backdrop area little too close in color to the yellow parts of the helmet when they're in shadow.  This makes it difficult for the eye to tell where foreground ends and background begins.  There's also a bit of banding on the edges of the helmet - areas where you have multiple lines of pixels of exactly the same length, making it seem like there's a thick, messy line at the edge, especially in the vicinity of the chin. 

That said, this looks a heck of a lot better than my first attempt at pixel art, which wouldn't even be counted as pixel art due to its ridiculous color count.  I look forward to seeing where you take your designs in the future!

Какого коммандо?

Спасибо, такой прогноз мне по душе, постараюсь его придерживаться.

Кстати, до сих пор тащусь с твоего коммандо размера x3.

it has very obvious potential.  just a couple of pixel issues holding it back a bit.  Banding, messy background, somewhat weak colors.  Overall this is pretty great :]

congrats on a great first piece
