Cool style! The use of colour is mesmerising. My favourite part is the three, love the 3Dish feel to it.

Beautiful work, I can only imagine what must have taken to get that photorealistic feel. I could definitely learn from this, keep it up!

Yeah, it was you indeed! I don't know, personally I don't feel like it's a lot of improvement, although maybe it looks different from outside. I haven't done a lot of pixel art, but I've watched more of it and seen more styles and techniques. I've tried different things, too, some rather cartoony, others more realistic. Also, I used to use Graphics Gale alone, and now I started throwing some Photoshop as well here and there, especially when defining the palette or tweaking some colours or values.

What I do more often, though, is painting (digitally), and I've noticed working with pixel art has helped me improving in that area, especially when it comes to laying down flat colours and simplifying details. I guess it might work the other way around too, somehow. 

For this particular piece I used references, so it was easier, I guess. I would have to try and do something similar without looking at a picture to see how much I have actually improved.

Anyway, thanks a lot! I'm not sure I can properly give advice to others, especially when they're good at it, but if you have any questions feel free to ask!

The bouncing works great! Also, I immediately related this to that Dawnbringer's submission before reading, so kudos on that

Muy lindo! Recuerdo haberlo visto en algún lado, probablemente en algún grupo de facebook. Me gusta como quedó la animación, bien aprovechados los 8 fotogramas! Muy linda paleta por lo demás.

Thank you guys!

@Owlfly @Omrii thank you, I struggled a lot with it to get it right, so glad you like it.

@AirStyle I've never felt I'm particularly good with dithering, so I tend to use it scarsely. This whole piece was a challenge for me.

Don't know what your game is about, or if it will ever come out, but I can say this looks like something I'd like to play.
