The face itself is from a template. My work is the uniform and helmet. Any tips or feedback?

Much better than what I could come up with.

Looks like a great start!

I would say maybe work on the shading and details. Usually a sprite should have more light areas than dark.

I did some quick edits as an example:

Now, don't take this as the end-all-be-all "this is what you should do". This is just my interpretation to give you some ideas.

Also, remember to zoom out every once in a while if you're not working with two windows. Something that looks good zoomed in may not look that great zoomed out.

Thanks :D That makes sense about the lighting.

How do I work with two windows of the same image in photoshop?

Just messin; not bad at all, really. Good job. I personally agree with what Aco said, make sure the shading and whatnot is balanced.

Boots should be semi shiny black.  A touch more tech is needed to make it futuristic.  Antennas coming off their helmets, left / right eye augmentation, etc.  As a base, it works fine with that touch of shadowing, and adding extra stuff like guns and weapons can create several characters out of one base character.  Comm tech to heavy armor to commanders, lots of possibilities there.

Thanks, yea I agree :) I'm planning for something like an action battle system in the future, but I'll probably never get around to it haha

I almost spat milk out on my keyboard! XD
THAT made me laugh. ^^

Anyway...  :V
Definitely the shading makes it look not only better but more distinctive.
And... And it doesn't look like a frog.

But it does now in my imagination because it's funny. XD

Double post by an admin. :P That's how you be an idol. :D
But I really wish that she comes back. In an other post she writen something like:
"I feel allways followed, can't sleep anymore, even I know there is no one around, I still can't."

I remember reading something like that in a different topic of her...
That's what makes think, she might will never come back... :'( (\s/)

There was a lot of drama with people thinking she was a dupe or troll at first, but things calmed down and she just sort of dropped off the forums. So...not really much that had to do with her last posts, but I think she just sort of left. I don't remember exactly, since I was away from the forums for a little while and then came back and she was
