based on He man action figure villains. I used the C64 pallet to restrict myself.Maybe i went to small, but that is a good lesson for readability. I like the top two.Moss man and the elephant.The bottom left one is nice in colors but not a good reader, the right is too chaotic.Made on my ipad with the app Sketch club. it has a pixel tool with lines, square and circle shape. fill is possible too. It has no preview, but you can zoom out your canvas to 100%.

Ahhhhhh that makes sense, that's just a whole mess of challenging! LOL I find not having a preview makes pixeling near impossible, so props for getting these results with that many handicaps!

Bottom right is skunk. Bad because you cant see its head by the dark background? I wanted to make this one with a short palette, restricted size in pix and with no AA. I havent touched on AA ever, so maybe to fix this one, i should use AA? Thanks :)

I think i know why. I went too small and restricted myself too much in colors. Thats trying too difficult things in one piece. A bit overated indeed. They seem dull due to the C64 palette i guess. I had no good preview with this one while working on it. Should have made it with another app. Will do too. Thanks ;)

These are interesting, awesome idea too drawing up the oldschool action figures :D They do look a little messy though, which is surprising cause all of your other work is very clean and crisp with such vibrant palettes!

The one on the bottom right reads horribly, what is it? I just checked the link and compared, still a mess. You should revise this one cause your not finished. Going transparent for your background might improve some of the readability issues?
