I am just a little artist, dreaming of maybe making a game in future. (I can not programm though)
At first, the type of game i would make if i could, would be a mix of Harvest Moon, Rune Factory and some other things, i would want it to be online and with open world housing . I do not really want to say more, ehehe ^^
Anyways, i can not really decide wich graphic style i should use. I am kind of experienced with pixels and i was trying out a non vector drawn thingy (i'm not good with vector )
So i would love to have some opinions and maybe tips about the size formats and such, because i really have noooo idea ^^
So your opinion and help is much apprechiated
Oh and... i almost forgot the graphics i already made ^^

Can't really offer you an opinion with context. With no platform and no information about the game either could wrong or right. Also have you considered 3D characters? Would be much less tedious in the long run if you plan on having a lot of costumes and items.

No i can not. Because i do not have much more.

#1 is definitely the safer bet. When in doubt, abstract.

You can totally work in 2D and that is OK, don't let anyone tell you different.
I like the eyes and better definition on the below version. I also like the no mouth solution (by the infamous hello kitty brand) but the character could still maybe look happier.
But sure, making the graphics alone won't get you far. I suggest you look around for popular 2D engines and tutorials on them. Programming isn't some kind of brick wall and it's made easy on some of the engines. Be confident!

It did not feel that way when i made it ^^; People only told me its cute until now ^^
Abstract essentially means generalization. Pixel art is 'abstracted' because the reduction of size means a loss of data from the original, thus the result is a more general representation of it's original. I guess I'm being overly technical.

Oh, well thanks for the explantion ^^
Well, i was thinking of maybe changing the size a bit. the head is really big and he looks a bit chubby... wich migth be my preference but not the general i asume ^^
Letztendlich werden es nun wirklich Pixel.
