HouseHeadStudios, a suggestion regarding the use of triangles:
I'm not the purist type, and I think you can do whatever you want with whatever type of art, so I'm not saying you have to stick exclusively to squares so it remains traditional pixel art... but because you used so few, they draw a lot of attention; everything else is squares, so the triangular parts stand out, at least to my eyes. I feel like you should use more triangles if you're going to use them at all. If every sprite had one or more triangular bits, it would keep things a lot more consistent.
I will take that into consideration i wasn't sure whether i wanted to use the triangles or not and havent given it much thought since... i think i will try out adding more triangles to some of the characters i think its a good point. thanks!
maybe i should post it on pixelation and get some feedback although i kinda know most people will be pretty purist about it.. but there is other stuff that could use some work even if i am trying to not go with a standard pixel art direction. so i appreciate the crits.
