I like it. If you make games (which you probobly do) you should make it into one.

The cat appears to have a darker outline/ more contrasting shading than the background tiles?

That's only because it's the main character and needs to stand out from the rest of the background. It'd be hard to see otherwise. Right?

I like it! However, i think games always look better when moving and therefore i would reserve final judgement after playing. Of which i can't wait!

i like it a lot
i dont like the clouds though. maybe try to add dithering to them and give them a nice fluffy shape and stuff. you know. so far they look like smiling hippos.

Not a bad point. I think their are too many of them looking too similar. Looks great apart from that though

looking really hot!
I think the curve on the bottom of the dark clouds should be a bit flatter/straight. They seem a bit too sad!

I should double post like this more often. Thanks for the comments. I've worked on it more since this. I'll try and post updated stuff soon. And aren't dark clouds supposed to be, dark and sad looking? I'll see if I can't add more cloud variations and try to avoid that smiling hippo look.

Thank you for the crits and comments.

If I can get this to looking right, I'll start working back on it after I get Catch As Cat Can finished. I think this is okay.

Forget the above. This is about CACC for now. That was just a passing thought.

About the difference in shading thing between the BG and the sprite(s), that's just fine. Some games use it for the point you already stated - to make the character stand out a bit more. I personally like it like that.

Yeah, so long as you're consistent with your art it should be fine.
Try thinking about making a choice if you want to have all foreground objects with dark outlines or just stuff you interact with.

About this Image

The general shape is ok but the different shades of blue could be a bit more contrasting. It's almost impossible to distinguish colours so close together on a small sprite. The head does look a little flat though.

Still it's all pretty good, not exactly the best art ive ever seen but pretty good.

Very good. Both of them. But you might wanna consider making the trees bigger unless its a gigantic cat of course.

More things from me.

Just playing around with some ideas here.

One of the cats has a different shading technique to it. If there's anything noticeable.
