I went back and improved some old custom sprites i made back when i was younger to test how better i've gotten since then.

I know this is a very late reply, but i want to thank you for this comment. I get caught up in what other people say that i doubt my own skills.

Woooooaaaahhhh, for the record I can see a big improvement. Lines are much cleaner, palette works much better, AA is drastically improved, the use of shadows creates a LOT more volume and form than the previous, and general cartoony anatomy and posing is day and night.

This is a great improvement. Sure, you can do better, but EVERYONE can do better no matter their level. Feel awesome about your progress, you absolutely deserve to :)

i agree, they arent that good of an improvement, but for me, i have kinda struggled with AA so this good for me personally. But, you are right, i can do better.

Eyyyyy, you're that guy from the VG Resource forums! It's great to see you've got an account over here.

Yeah, like the people over at VGR said, the newer versions aren't an enormous improvement over the older ones. Really, I think your improvement can be better seen in your outlined and AA'd work.

Wow, crazy good improvements! I especially like the little red dude in the bottom left corner

Overall I think it's a good improvement

I think the handling of the dogs' faces is a step in the wrong direction. The 2012 versions of the dogs were more readable.
