Item design

Hey,

So i am trying to get into pixel art, but i have a problem.

How to get better quality of items?

I used GraphicsGale FreeEdition with 64x32 (24 bit map file) for this item:

The default wood log looks much better when it comes down to quality and detail:

My item looks much more edged than the default ones.

It is meant to be a shuriken, but i do not know how to increase its quality and also i got a little problem, because at beginning i borderd it black so it looks better, but then i recognized that the Inventory version has a black background, so i had to remove the black border 😕

Any advices to improve my pixelart skills? I also would appreciate a better version done by you!

I shaded it a little bit and fixed the border. Tell me what you think:

Wow! Amazing, can you teach me how to do it? Which program did you use?

Thanks! Most of the credit goes to you though, since you made the base design. I just changed it a little.
I should be able to. Do you have Skype?
I used Paint.Net, which isn’t the best program for sprites, but it is what I am used to.
