Today iLKke and I found out about D-pixel (http://retroidea.com/?p=9)
In order to test it out, we decided to pixel a 8-col avatar each, at 64x64x pixels.
We agreed to make them feature cats with hats, but accidentally both turned out to be smoking as well
iLKke's cat is on => http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/60549.htm
This is great. You're colors are awesome.
I wasn't able to tell he was winking at first though, it kind of looked as though he was just missing his right pupil, which is scary. Perhaps if you lightened the outline on the top so it's not so dark, it'll look proper? I'm not sure, it could just be me. :b
I bet he is winking because the smoke is getting in his eye :)
