*The hooves do not fit the rest of the body and appear to be above the fur (the shading is just bad on the hooves)
*The face is mirrored and the shading needs to be adjusted for light direction
*Metal of the axe needs be redone
*one arm is strangely larger than the other

Here is a crappy fix for the hooves and I marked some of the areas you need to trim and rework
You also need to think about how your going to animate this

Perspective is wrong
I wouldn't worry about that, just use this image as a concept for the frames your going to need

Is the axe made of rock or metal... a really soft metal.

There doesn't seem to be a cheap way to make this 45deg. Your tauran is a very nice piece of pixel art still. Is it a practice exhibition / concept or is this planned to be a monster in the game world? If it's for the game world change the topic to something like "[WIP] Tauran".

Well, uh...

If a monster is being done for game here, Jetryl would remind us to be doing the animation stick figures / outlines first (you already know that... *gulp*)

Indeed you can't really make it 45 degrees without redrawing it (but it can help work out the over look of the monster and be used as a reference while creating the frames)

Feel free to edit :)

I saw Suikoden character icons, and really liked them, so I made 1 for myself xD
-I used their skin color, and the wood part around the pic xD

Thanks :D
I won't work on the tauren much atm, since I have the player-set to do D:
But as soon as I am done with it, I'll look forward to finishing it after I am done with player set. :wink:

And if anybody wants avatar like mine, just ask I can pixel 1 for you, free. :wink:

They are nice icons (sadly TMW doesn't do abstract, so you'll need full sprite sheets for them)

So, did you really create this monster + items?

Just asking cause the quality of your avatar seems far inferior to your other stuff - your older posts imply that you used ripped graphics in the past.

And I figure that an artist who is able to create such a fine piece of pixel art like this tauren should be able to correct the perspective by himself / create the graphic in the correct perspective from the beginning.

I hope I am wrong, but TMW gets in trouble if it uses stuff the contributor has no right on.
