Okay, since apparently you guys are too immature to explain to him how he needs to improve...

Okay, BASICALLY the shading on the spikes is a little lackluster and they're shaped weirdly. I'd reccomend working on shading with the clothing too. The pants in particular are also not baggy enough, and just look like they're painted on.

I hope this advice is more useful than the useless junk everyone else said.

Guys, the reason he's posting this here is so he can get advice on how to improve. GIVE IT TO HIM. Gosh.

Note: I'm not entirely sure you can call this a custom sprite. It instead looks like an edit. This is not a BAD thing, but it is important to use the correct terminology.

EDIT: I feel the need to explain what exactly I meant by the spine's shading. Essentially, they don't look shaded enough. I would recommend using the second-darkest shade to outline the top part of the top spine, and use the second-lightest shade for your shading needs. Also, the top spine looks odd and sort of blocky. I'd recommend smoothing it out as well.

Overall, this is an okay sprite. It's not particularly GREAT, but it's not TERRIBLE.

I remember making this same mistake when I started spriting.

By my guess you're trying to make it look like this?

@Syogren: I could have gave some real advice. But I didn't feel like it. Besides I knew someone actually helpful, like you, would come along eventually.

@Syogren: Let me just say this.

I'm no help.

@Spar Elric: I suppose I should be thankful you didn't ban me from commenting altogether. So, thanks.
