I'm stuck in a loop of revising my base sprites.

The problem is that at any moment they look good, but every time I look back at pre-revision works (that looked good to me at the time) they look horrendous to me and I don't know why I thought they were any good.

I'm mainly looking for critiques about consistency (especially height/mass) and colors and if certain shapes look off.

Made a lot of revisions in order to try to improve mass consistency.

Do the feet look too big? I'm thinking about making them smaller. What do you think?

I'd say my issue is that the eye in the portrait is of a different style than the character. I think Final Fantasy Tactics managed to transition from one version to another well.

I think the rounded feet are a bit cuter, but the sharper feet are more "realistic". Either way I think it is a small detail though. The base sprites already look quite good.

The portrait feels like it could use some more work though. Since you seem to be going for a FFT style I'd probably study how they designed their portraits.
