Absolutely gorgeous. This, and the others in the series pull at my heartstrings.
Do you have any tips/tutorials out there for pixel novices such as myself? :)

Thank you! Anything in particular you want to know? As far as hints, don't fall into the trap of adding shadows, midtones, and highlights to every single area of a piece. Recessed areas need heavy shadows with a little midtone and maybe a hint of highlight, and vice versa for prominent areas. Also, try to pick a non-centered light source. Basicly, avoid this: [link] See how the neck has light when it's usually in shadow from the head, and the shirt's highlight pattern follows a centered point instead of an actual light source? Just draw pixel art as if you would a charcoal still life by keeping true to actual refracted light patterns.
