This is a pixel icon I made for my DA account. Thoughts?

 

It's the only pixel thing I've done that looks good, other than a gigantic pagedoll I made.

It looks really good! It could probably use some more texture/shading/contrast imo. I think it'd really bring out the best in what you've already done.

These are my favorite references and I find them really helpful to look at any time I start shading hair/fur on sprites and anthro-esque characters, maybe you'll find them helpful too. C:

Aw man I have that fur tutorial! xd.png I've got to look at my tutorial folder some more.

 

I did some more pixels

 

I did a fox head from some lineart I made a while ago. Shading is obviously wrong with the dithering, but then I did some SAI cheater soft shading lol

Then I tried to sprite Kila's tatterwing sketch. I didn't finish the sprite, but here's what I did do:

So I tried to make a dragon and I wanted some crits before I started shading it.

Uh I have no crits to contribute, but would anyone mind taking a quick look at this banner I made recently? The Espeon was pixeled off art done by Sugar-Free.

I couldn't get away with laziness, but I'll admit it looks a lot better when I put in more effort xd.png

That looks much better!! C:

You can take this suggestion or leave it, but the top of the head gets a littleclose to white-white; you may want to use a different (pinker/bluer) hue to show the lighting at the top of the head. Or maybe add some shadows.

It's mostly noticeable only because of the DC forum's white background tho.

I decided to practice my shading. It's probably not DC worthy, but I tried. Could use some crits on this practice sprite to help me further my ability to shade.

 

EDIT: Progress shots before it was finished

So I've featured this thread to hopefully make it easier to find. This doesn't pin the thread, but does put a nifty little star next to the title to make it stand out.

The anatomy is a little interesting, but the shading isn't half-bad! Not at all. I think the dark shades on the wing are a little stark and could use a bit more gradient and the lighter colored wing shading could use a bit of smoothing, as it has kind of a dithered effect in some areas, but all in all, I think you used a good range of shades and picked a good angle to start practicing with. =)
