Just wondering which character looks better for my RPG.
The low quality has its charms while the double quality one looks better.

I'd say the one on the right looks better.

Why is the low quality one on the left outlined in pink?

Of course, to really judge a character's art style, it helps to see the background or environment graphics.

And it depends on how big the characters will be in-game, what kind of style you are going for, and how well you can animate them.

Maybe add a quality settings, but if you don't want, I'd say the one the the right.

Thank you for your feedback guys :D

Other one was outlined in pink because there will be three types: melee, ranged, magic (I didn't outline the big guy yet sorry D:)
Will be starting to design the backgrounds soon since I know what scale I'm working on (pixel wise)

Pick a p^2 tile, draw to scale.
If you want upscaled, let the software render the final product for you. That will give you multiple benefits.
1 to 4, 1 to 8 ratio etc. is just a waste of time and memory.

I strongly prefer the left one but without the pink outline. Has a sort of fire emblem style to it. Could use more vivid colors and greater contrast too...looks a bit pale.

Agree with you that the left one has more charm. However I also believe that it depends on how you animate either one.

@gillenew I agree, however I don't see the point with the wierd red outline thingy.
