Been working on 'classicising' the Goron Sprites from the Oracle Games. I was intending to do the same for the Zoras, but it might be harder to work out properly since only two of these (the punching ones) are less than 16x16, whereas the front-facing Zora ones (the most important ones) are larger than that.
In any case, here are my ones, with the Oracle ones beside for comparison. I think they're ok, but I'm looking for a little feedback, since I'm not entirely convinced.
I think they look pretty good, considering the limitations of the c-set. Back, and sides look fine, the only thing I might tweak is the chin on the front-facing ones. Maybe make the chin one pixel higher so the face doesn't look so big compared to the others?
I will say, I like your punching ones better than the OoX ones tbh. Overall, you did a good job of removing the black outlines, the single thing that makes GB and Classic so radically different, in spite of using basically the same palette structures.
