@LeithGil; It's going fine, but you may want to give it some dimension by adding some darker colors, and add some antialiasing.

@ihermes; It looks good. Right now without a body and background it looks a little out of place. Also the black outline is a little distracting.

Not sure how to draw fur to look like fur. And may be too much dithering. (2x scale version)

Yup. That fur is over pixelled.
Dithering is ok.
Don't go for pixelling every hair in the fur.
Try more for a furry texture and be simple about it because everyone knows an Ewok is furry so you only need to suggest it.
If I find a good fur example in the gallery I'll post it here for you :)

See this by Buloght notice its very little pixelling and its very furry

You should try linear noises rather than dots. Check out the current entries so far. http://pixeljoint.com/pixels/challenges.asp
