What would Mario's favorite brother look like if you were in charge? We recommend he remains green and tall, but other than that you can draw him however you like!

So just to be clear, are we taking an existing style that featured Luigi and remaking it into a brand new sprite, or just making a new Luigi sprite? Trying to fully understand what you mean by "redesign a Luigi sprite".

You are welcome to be inspired by an existing style/sprite, as long as you don't actually use an existing sprite as a base. It has to be 100% original work.

Other than that, you can do whatever you like. Design, redesign, stick close to the original but with a twist or do something completely different!

I think it looks great already! I don't have a specific pointer, but to me there are a few things that look odd and could perhaps be redone:
The shoes, the shading on the tail, the shading on the moustache.
I certainly do love the pose, the shading on his dungarees and his hidden face! Very good start!

This is my daughter's first attempt at some pixel art (she's 9).
It's Cool Luigi:

She'd like some advice on how to make Cool Luigi even more cool :-)

Thank you, I will try to fix those!

Very nice for a first try!

To make him even cooler, maybe add some shadow or an outline so we can see where his nose is. And maybe move his sunglasses further down so they're not on the top of his head. Or give him dragon wings. Whichever is cooler.

Cool, though I think the challenge is asking for a sprite. Yours is more like a portrait.

Yes, Stickman is right! And transparency is required! But I'm sure it can easily be transformed into something that fits?

Yes you're right, I might need to start from scratch in that case

Ah, it's a maximum of 8 colors. Too bad. I don't have time to find a solution.
