What also might help is to lose some of the clouds. Now the opening in the clouds focus just under the back of the big bird (almost looks likes he is pooping in flight

 Thank you =)

You're right about background too, it's very basic. I've not reserved high luminosity enoug coulour for making more shades on clouds, but i could have done better effects, & used dithering.

I've learned many things latest day by  looking at Cure's tutorial & many of the pixel art of the Gallery since i've discovered in Pixel Joint (better late than never =D).
My next pieces should technically improve.

fyi = for your information.

This is really nice, though I agree on Cure's critic. Very flat. Also, the background doesn't look totally done, especially on the top left corner.

Keep it up!

 Ok, no more post for this month.
fyi ?

You're right : it's very planar and it has proportion problem.
Head should be 1.5c bigger, corpse longer before the tail.

just fyi, that might be enough submissions for now. we don't really allow bulk submissions (so as not to bury the queue), so if you submit too many we may end up sending them back temporarily just to clean out the queue.

the bird lacks volumes, feels very 2d. the body and talon also seem undersized compared to the head.
