My entry for the "Samurai Era" weekly challenge. I wish I had more time to spend on it, it's ages I don't do some pixel art :) 

He has one arm inside the kimono, with only an hand getting out from it. I imagined one of the last ronins posing for an early photograph.

EDIT : I changed the ground and some bits here and there.

i really like the colors and the pose of this piece, looks great :) good job on it

 Thanks for letting me know :) I updated it with a more solid ground and some distant trees. I wonder if it's clear he's having one arm inside the kimono.

 Sure you can!

Thanks for stopping by mate :) I tried different solutions for the ground, my idea was to keep it very minimal and using a color for it was looking nice but kinda moving far from my initial concept. I could experiment more though. I wonder if I can still edit this and update it, since it's and entry for a contest? I never took part in a contest at PJ before.

A bit heavy on the dithering perhaps, but still a pretty good entry!

You could perhaps use the purple for the ground, as i don't think that the random pixels serve much purpose right now.

Thanks mate!

hey this is a nice. reminds me of some guy from some fighting game. 5/5

Thanks for the feedback mate! I was unsure if to dither or not, cos of this palette's strong contrasts.

Usually very good looking but a little too much ditherin render several places undefinable.
