Not bad for a newbie. It has a great color scheme. What sprites did you rip it from?

Welcome to FFH.
First thing, front frame I thought at first his head was cut in half, then I realized that was his beard blending in seamlessly. Looks weird.

@Durbs
For the portrait i used part of the "Old man" avatar and part of Elmdore avatar too.
For the sprites i used "old man" head (some times Algus), some parts of Elmdore clothing, and mostly male mediator outfit, i love their coats.

@GeneralStrife
Edited a little, how it looks now?

I'm no spriter, but what you've got going there looks awesome.

This is a very good first attempt. As mentioned before you might want to consider using different shades of black for the cloths and hair, just to add some differentiation and not make him so dark. Though the black you have chosen is a good one. The portrait needs a little work in the color department, can you post the portrait at 100?

That is looking a lot better, his eyebrows are still black (it works if that is what you meant to do). Do you want help with the hair color on the portrait?

Yes, i let the eyebronws that way because if i used brown they clould get lost in the face, using blak for eyebrons solves that problem.

About the portrait, yes please, it will thank so much your help.

I kinda liked the black hair but good job!  The palettes being separate is better and more universal though.. palette one could be black haired while 2 could be brown. The sprite looks cool. I think the portrait needs more of a head.. it's like he has a small cranium the back of his head is missing some mass like 2 pixels worth of  hair should do.

Pretty good for a first sprite.  My only critique would be that his beard in the sprite seems longer than the one in the portrait, but I don't know how much of that you can actually fix before it just looks weird.

Portrait-wise, the only issue I see right now is that the areas under his collar are a flat black, which looks kind of weird.  Next time you post it, can you post a 200% or 300% portrait as well?  It's easier to see the details and critiquing this I'm typing with my laptop held on its side to look at your blown up sprite sheet.

Nice work extending the beard. I would recommend shifting the head one pixel to the right, he looks like he is pushing his head forward right now.

There is still something a little funky with the hair color. Funky is a great word btw. The back of his head should have the darkest shades, not those lighter colors. It might be a straight palette swap of the colors wont work well or something.

Also, the head/neck looks better, but you need a couple more pixels of neck. Like the first line of the neck under the ear is too long. The next line of neck to the right of that should be 1 or 2 pixels higher.

This really is turning out to be a great first sprite.

I do like the sprite, and the portrait, but to me it just looks like one of the sides of his face (on the portrait) is very very, almost unnaturally, straight. Personally, I feel that it could do with a bit more of a curve somewhere down that line, but that's just my opinion.

Move Zig. For great Justice.

Also, Algus sucks up to level 5 donkey balls.

It's based off of a vanilla portrait. like that though, so it's just a matter of taste. The original uses that.
