So, my first submission to PixelJoint and my third pixel art piece (first one that's done to the point that I'm happy with it). I've never done dithering or anti-aliasing before (especially with such limited colors) but I tried my best.
I just thought of someone listening to music and how that affects your thinking and perspective; I know music affects me greatly and I usually think more as a side-effect.
Obviously, this guy's listening to something upbeat and happy. =)
I worked really hard on this, revised it many times, took lots of advice from very intelligent and helpful people in the WIP forum, and I hope you like it.
