Tip: Include detail, but know when there's too much or two little. Add texture to the image being created with said detail.

Shading is key. Rather than just use lighter and darker versions of the same colors, make your shadows and highlights slightly different colors. For instance, if your base color is blue, make your shadows a bit purple, and your highlights a tinge more green.

But seriously, I personally found this pixel art tutorial on outlines to cover several tips that are easy to understand, introduces you to the art of pixel art and can be applied immediately to improve your earliest work and mastered over time. Honestly, some of these tips can improve your Minecraft builds too!

I'm not that great of an artist, but I have dabbled in the world of spriting a few times, one thing that should help you is keeping limitations in mind, which forces you to be creative in many different ways, this could be anything like a color palette, only a few colors per square on a grid, etc.
