Im glad to see the addition of a new pixel artist to the portal! This place needs more stuff like this.
I like this picture, the free form nature of your pixel art is interesting and seems more expressively drawn than technically placed. This is a good thing, and conveys atmosphere much more naturally. You do good with organic subject matter which makes me interested in seeing more geometrical stuff in your works. The creature is cute, looks like the pet dog of Dad & Me. Also that sun is interesting. One thing to take into consideration is making the background of your picture a bit more visible. The dithered out blend into the sky gives it a fogged, gloomy feel but a tad more contrast would make it just right. Also the water the creature is treading on isnt very focal and maybe should have had some bedding under it to make it stand out more. The speech bubble is a nice addition and to be completely honest it would be in your interest to make the meat look less like shit. Make it have more of a red hue, or stick a bone through it, just make it not look like a brown lump. Also having a enlarged picture next to the smaller one is a double edged sword. While it gives more of a technical portrait and detail insight, it also takes from the feeling of the picture letting the audience escape the other worldly feeling you are trying to capture them with. All and all i love it, and am happy to see things like this pop up.
