This is my first fully animated human player, with a walk animation, an animated lasso, and a gun.

It's surprisingly easy to make animations: even with two frames your brain goes like: these pixels change, that hand goes there, makes perfect sense

Whoops, double lasso, we can't have that, let's quickly update the lasso-pose characters

One thing that may need a bit of improvements is distinguishing the foreground leg from the background leg (currently it looks like the legs have a 2-frame walk animation even though there's four, well with an in-between frame that's used twice, so technically there are three frames)

But doing so is tricky because there aren't that many colors
I managed to do it with the hands using black guiding lines, but on the legs that's a bit harder because the pants are already black

You don't need the pants outlined 100% along their entire ("U" shaped) perimeter.

Could you try shading with another color (maybe dark gray) along one edge of the pants, representing a light source?

You can always layer one sprite on top of another sprite... each sprite then could have its own set of 3 colors.... abit extra work to keep the two sprites together....

Remember that the smaller sprite numbers are layered ABOVE the higher sprite numbers....

The same trick can work for BGs ... BG 0 above BG 1...

In either case, leave empty spaces for the below pixels to show thru

Very cool graphics :D
