    I'll create a blob of colors first then I'll shape it with an outline?
    if that's that then I'll try my best

    Outlines first.

    You could do them with the blobs technique (recommended); paint a blob of color and then shape it till you get what you want, to then proceed and outline it. Or you could try sketching lines like pencil and paper, but it may take you a while to clean them up after you get the shapes down.

    But still, it all depends on what you're doing.

    so... if I'm going to do sketching on paint and pixel-over it, should I do the outline first then the miscellaneous or the other way around?

    It would be really awkward.. To have copyright infrigements on art techniques.
    Imagine, having to pay some random artist 10 bucks to use dithering, or paying Jackson Poll0ck a million dollars in order to drop paint buckets on the floor.

    . . . so... your broken line style is public right?

    Hmm.. Sure.

    My cloud style is somewhat simple to make, once you get used to it. It took me a few tries to get it right myself.

    If you're going to make it yourself, then.. First goes the cloud shape in the darkest color, then the darker shades, and lastly the bright areas on the tops. Brush tool, middle circle; then refine it with the x1 dot, AA, and it's done.

    I personally think having limits is good.. 4 colors tend to spark your creativity as of how to apply them best, among other stuff.

    But, why would they require you to make black outlines..? Aren't they the ones that have them most?

    I think it's really hard doing 8-bit sprites... I bothers me that it requires you to not use so much black outlines :D
