I won't add anything nor will I support to add new things in legacy. Reasons behind it has been said over and over again. :/

We do already have an elf sprite, you are free to improve it though.

Your ears look too straight, you can use a technique that is something called anti-alliasing, it's basically a way to use 1/3 and 2/3 transparent pixels to smooth your edges, you can also give a more curved look to your ears with it.

The ear is more curved/natural so it is an improvement.
Although, the style of your ears are very different from the style of the player sprite that we use, you can try to mimic the palette and shading style that is used on the hand.
Also, don't export to jpg, jpg is bad for pixel art, export to png instead.
And use a proper playersprite, the one that you used doesn't have any anti-aliasing. :wink:
You can use that sprite for reference https://gitlab.com/evol/clientdata/raw/ ... n-male.png

The current elf sprite is pretty good but it would be better if there were some more.
