Update:
Check out the progress here:

Previously titled: Which Sprite looks better?

But changed the title as I already chose the first sprite:

But still are getting posts (which is fine) so thought I would update.

Slowly working on more art for this, just did this:

I might continue to update here every once in a while for those that stumble across this, but probably won't post new comments (at the bottom) as bumping this post is not my intention.

Thanks everyone


Original Post:

Which of these two do you like better?

I was pretty much an absolute beginner to art a couple months ago. Recently I have been working on this character and have started over several times. Now I can't decide which I like better between the two.

Can see the full animations here:

If you are reading this please at least reply with first/smaller or second/larger (for which one you like better). Any feedback or pointers also appreciated.

Thanks for the feedback—appreciate it. The first one would be a much smaller sprite than the second one.

I prefer the first/smaller one. I like the more pixelated look to it.

Thank you everyone for the feedback ( @famousgnu6 , @DarthCrusher , @Nagval333, @icestorm30). The unanimous votes have made my decision easy!

I have started messing around with making other characters (npc) from his frame, just trying out whatever comes to mind for now so many are similar and touch-ups needed:

Just started on attempting females - I was reluctant at first as was worried about actually getting them to look feminine. Final result of first attempt:

...and purely for my own entertainment:

In my opinion, in this case 2 frames is not enough for a walking animation.

I'm not happy with the walking left/right animation and plan on changing it. Probably somewhere in between my first two attempts, one looks like he has a limp and the other looks like bouncing in a full sprint:

I am happy with the walking down animation though:

Not planning on changing it to more frames though. Using 2 frames isn't uncommon and I feel that more would be unnecessary in this case.
