Damn you're fast :)
Even though I understand it's not one of the harder tasks :)
Keep'em coming :)

You can in general take ideas from my BomberKeen rotations :)

Nice, but I think they can be improved further.
Thank you :)

On the front facing ones, the mouth shouldn't extend all the way across. I'd make it as a small smile with the ends of the mouth curved downward. But the head being slightly larger than the body, but without any defined neck.

Yes, that's what I meant.

Eww.. that's not as easy as I thought at low resolution. Drawing the nose makes it look like a smile. CK has enough problems with bad sprite interpretation.
