shadows aren't commonly pure white
or have shadows of their own

Isn't really a shadow, it's the light refracting off the droplet and onto the 'paper'. One wonders why it would be broader than the surrounding shadow, however (or why it needs pillow shading).

It's not that we didn't like it

We're giving you criticism that's kind of a thing that happens

This is the Mia-4,robot cat.
(Warning:It may poop radioactive waste.This is a design feature.The Mia-4 unit has not been informed of this design feature.)

I have smaller versions of the image,going down to 40x50,but they are earlier versions(created due to the way I make these)
Oh,and as for IdioticBaka's water droplet:Either refraction's getting the better of me,or the top of the shadow is smaller than the top of the droplet. Otherwise,nice.

it looks really blocky and not really innovative, plus that I can't distinguish the head from the body. :V

"looks really blocky":Depends what you mean by blocky. If you mean the cat looks like a brick with 4 legs,a head,and a tail,then that's intentional. If you mean "You don't anti-alias": then I didn't know about this unwritten rule(sorry...) If you mean "Even though you try to correct it I see signs it was a 40x25 image at first",that's because I can't work with big images directly-I have to start small then scale them up.Sorry.
"not really innovative":I honestly can't figure out what you mean by "innovative",but I'm guessing it's the flat colours you're referring to,or lack of shadow.
"can't distinguish the head from the body": Well,I can't figure out how to split the head and the body without changing the colours or the view angle. Probably should have changed the view angle.
Note that the bottom-right cat is simply a identification mark to take up space.
...I should probably stick to user interface images in future.

The first four characters for my first game, which is going to be a Smash Bros fangame featuring indie game characters. So naturally, Quote was the first sprite I did XD

Once I get the basic coding together for this thing I'll post it in its own thread, but for now you can look at these sprites :V

Like in Smash 4, most of the characters will be available at the start. There's currently one secret semi-joke character planned. DLC along the line is possible as well.

Silverpaw, I've been designing people's movesets for a while now. There definitely will be lots of variety.

Will there be alt colors if two people want to play the same character?
