I guess some people's starting to respect me :) ohwell
I guess drawing teachs you one thing or two, or maybe it's natural. But it's not hard unless you're making NPC graphics

Sorry I didn't get it
That line of code draws a semitransparent black overlay over the screen.

also yknow how sometimes you really gotta get some of that sweet chlorophyll? yeah same

Well, I was about to make the overworld tiles...
Chlorophyll tileset. Coming soon with extra plants and NPCs

Added in 6 hours 37 minutes 29 seconds:
I can officially say that the first part of the tileset is finished. Now heading to the second part (I'll add extra tiles to the cave part later, like more rock variations and plain tiles for the pipes)

Next part: Overworld Cave
Spoiler: show
Image
And before someone comes to tell me that the details aren't noticeable because it's dark, this is how it looks ingame
Spoiler: show
Image
I too thought it was rather dark. But in-game it looks perfectly fine. I do suggest getting a better background though, also that bridge seems to cut into the ground, is this intended? Just looks a little off to me, but other than that, I'd say you have a pretty decent tileset here.

The bridge was made like that
Talking about the background: I will make my own background (or I'll try) to fit with the cave, the overworld cave won't come with a background, just the underground

I see what you're going for, but there's a few things off:
-Back elements like the back foot and back ear seem to be bigger than their foreground counterparts
-The ears seem to be merged in a sense? It is easily interpretable as a weird hairstyle, hah.
-He looks a bit depressed, lift his spirit a little
-I recommend making stuff further in the back of a sprite darker to emphasize their distance

Now, don't get to work on all of these right away, cause I wanna show you a little bit of a cheat when it comes to a sprite's personality:
Spoiler: show
Image
Even though people wouldn't actually stand or walk like that, many sprites in videogames are drawn in 3/4 view to get more personality out of their expressions. That view lets you see both eyes of the sprite, and gives a better look at the 3-dimensionality of the sprite. Notice mario's jump above the bun for comparison and how even this little sketch already looks much more lively.

Here's a more professional example of how the result might look like for a rabbit-like creature: (game: drawn to life)

Maybe you can improve the ears? They seem way too straight and it seems a bit weird imo.

Tried redoing his ears and now he doesn't even look like Mips so I gave him a recolor.

it's still too dark. Idk why you didn't stick with the changes enjl made. It made the tileset look a lot better.

To add to what Prox said: Sizeable tile trick: Make the walkable area of the sizeable lighter than the rest (read: same palette as the regular tileset) to make it easier to tell that you can stand on it.

But I'd like to take advantage of this moment to say that... I don't know if it's for the quality of the image but some outline pixels seem to be larger than others

Idk the source, but it reminds me of the green, SMB3 background tile from the battle games. Overall it looks great, and as PopYoshi said, some of the outlines (mainly the slopes) look bigger than others.

Maybe it's because he edited the image to make a close up and some parts were altered (which would be weird, because if that's what he did then all the pixels should be from the same size)

Yeah cause the fact that each tile is 43x43 pixels rather than 16x16 pixels isn't a dead giveaway for the fact that the image is zoomed in at an odd ratio.
