im not super good, i just make some nice houses instead of progressing a lot. my tips, though, are avoid rectangles, think of everyblock as a pixel, and study some pixel art to get a good idea for composition.
I made some slight edits to the fancy health and mana option, as well as the bar.
i think it looks pretty neat. maybe you will too.
huge thanks to Amaro_Lunático for walking me through the whole process.
Here are some pics
