I mean if you were to remove a pixel for the eye... he only has one eye, pixels make big differences.
His head as well as his body is one pixel wider. The only reason for this is just continuity. We're to match MI2's style rather than SMI's style. Also, when the sprite is in 320x200, he will be thinner.

Continuity, you may not care about it, but I do.

Just a pointer, tell people what you like about it before you make a suggestion.

I just used a sprite I found on the internet. Maybe you could be more specific on what changes I should make.

He had no visible eyebrows in CMI, so if they were flaming, I think we would've noticed. The eyebrows give contrast to his glowing eyes. I guess I can make them a dark red or something.

Edit: Also btw, I think Elaine should have the same clothes because she did from MI1 and MI2. Would also save some time on your part :P
Pretty much, but perhaps a color change.
