I think that sprite of the sportscar looks incredible! Very well detailed and shaded. Good use of that cross-hatching (Do you still call it that with pixels?) for the shading and the finer details too!
Sorry for the double post, but I finished the sprite. However, I'm not sure how to stop him from blinking over and over again. Can anyone help?
Oh, yes, I'm also using Photoshop Elements 7.0 for this.
I wonder how similar Elements is to Photoshop CC...
For blinking the keyframe timings I use are:
This makes the blinks look a little more random (and is essentially the timing the court-records.net sprite rips use)
Other than that he looks good! I have a critique about his posture (This is a trap Apollo based sprites fall in when they lower his arm XD). When his arm is resting on the bench, it looks natural for him to have his posture slightly slumped, as his resting on the bench, but when both arms are at his side, he should straighten his back up a little, it looks like he's sticking his head forward (If that makes sense).
