Just a quick pixel pic of Pico. I might use it in a game for pico day. This is my first pixel art I ever did. Anything I can improve on?

His right foot is smaller than his left.
His left hand is backwards.

that's because his left foot is farther away from the right.

You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else.

I don't get why you guys keep harping on about the anatomy ...

... when this is the problem with this pixel pic?

If you're trying to reduce the shape of the body down to pixels, I don't see why you've included much smaller pixels to put in uneccesary details like the gun trigger and the shoelaces.

If you want to make a pixel pic, please keep the pixel size consistent. This can mean you can make the head shape rounder (since you can use more pixels to define the shape), or lose details like the shoelaces (since you can't comfortably draw them with huge pixels)

... urf, worst explanation ever.

Seconded, this is the exact advice and crits I would give. So many details would be totally lost if this was reduce to an actual pixel size, really though, it ain't bad at all. Has some strong points. Keep up the good work. :D

Neither of his hands are backwards, and his foot is at an angle, you could argue. Just a bit of devil's advocate, because the bits I'd be picking at are the other inconsistencies like thickness of his arm, that hideous unibrow and the pixels are not at all the same size.

Its not really a unibrow. If it was, the unibrow would be the same color as his hair. The rectangle is just merely a shadow,
