I decided it might be fun to remake one of the first things I ever pixeled and I think the first pixel art I ever 'animated': gwnne.tumblr.com/post/40111
the animation doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but neither does the original, haha.
I was surprised at the picture you linked in the discription when you said it was one of the first things you ever pixelled. Looks pretty good.
That being said, while this is a different style it also works nicely. I'm particularly impressed with the definition you've managed to give to the hands.
