@Blastlechum: So sorry to hear that. Hopefully you'll do better next time!

Usually when I see sprites of this poor quality and little to no defining character traits other then really crappy quills, I feel inclined to give to some harsh C+C. But I'm way too tired to do that right now. I might give some C+C tomorr-err...later today.

I'll go ahead and give some critique.

Like what Zocky brought up, the sprites are of poor quality and lacking in defining character traits.
The character looks like Shadow. A lot like Shadow. I mean it's Shadow with slightly different quills and some clothes and of a different color. I'd be willing to bypass this for a bit if the sprite itself were made better, though.

The sprite itself... uh... I'll start with shading. The darker shades have poor contrast. There's very little defined shading in it until you zoom in a lot. On his head, I can see bits of blue on some of the sprites. Some of it's on the quills, sometimes it's around the eyes. Speaking of eyes, on some of the sprites they're blue, on others, it's a grayish color. Should make that more consistent.
The shirt has almost no shading. You've gotta have shading. The only shading I see is near the end of the sleeves and a little more around the arm, and those darker shades have poor contrast as well.
The pants are hard to define as pants in the idle poses. The shading feels random on them as well; note that when you shade, there should be a light source.
The shoes also have weird shading on the blue parts and suffer from another inconsistency; I can see dark red on the bottom.
The quills have a strange design and look off. They're very awkward, so a change is in order there. They look like they're changing shape throughout the sprite sheet as well.

All over the sprite sheet, you've got blue in places were it probably isn't meant to be, red in strange places and what not. Should really fix those, even if they're smaller details that you won't see unless you zoom in. It's messy.

... am I the only one who's going to comment on the comic's layout going back to default?

@Kurona: yea i noticed that too

Well looks like Kyraii beat me to the C+C. The only thing I can add is that the shoes are obviously just Shadow's shoes recolored blue. You should actually edit the shoes. The sprite also still has Shadow's gloves and those weird gold ring bracelet things he has on his wrists. You should at least edit out the ring things, that should help in making the character look less like Shadow.

Hm...I would give an unbiased critique, but I'm biased against hedgehogs.

that addon...
No Just No. Unless you delete the WHOLE hair and do a new one.

Hairs are hard to do. And that happened with me. (that old DBZ sprite sheet that i had.)

Just try making a hair of your own. and it will be fine.

but for the jacket and the pants, they are just epic!
just follow some tutorials.
someday i wanna be a big spriter too.
