Wow
That's amazing
I've always loved pixel art, but I've never really been good at it :P

Looking good!

The only thing I can suggest is to make your lines smoother. Like this:


Other than that it looks pretty good to me. Maybe add a transparent background? Or make it smaller so the pixels aren't so big?

Keep up the good work!

The art looks good, but the ear behind the hair looks a little strange.
