I already did a pixel of Bill Rizer, from Contra, but now I decided to remaster the original sprite with my current skills. The first sprite uses colors chosen by me, the second uses only colors provided by the original sprite. Also, I remade the pants to look like they're part of a futuristic combat gear that fuses boots and pants together while providing mobility, and that Bill simply choose to not wear the top part.

Here is the original little fella for comparison purposes:

Just a tad too many lines in the chest for my taste, but I understand it's an aesthetic choice.

Other than that, looks amazing, especially what you did with the 4 colors.

Thanks for the input! Added a texture to his leg that look like scales, based on the shading used on the original sprite. Since he has to move through water and swampy environment, I think this could help his mobility xD Made his leg shorter too

The sprite itself is very cool and the details are well done. The only thing that bother me a bit, is that I see that his leg is too long. and weird. Maybe if you put a little bit of muscle & volume on the legs, and you do them 3 pixels shorter or something, I will looks better.

Anyway, very good one, Contra is one of my favorite shooters.

I licked but nothing happened D^:

@Zizka because it's Contra Force!

Looks cool. I never understood why they chose to call the game ''Contra'' considering it doesn't exactly refer to role models. Unless the Aliens are supposed to represent the reds... which I doubt.
