IMO the middle one, but head and lower pincer are better in the left one.

Yes.You noticed! First I drew the egg upright, but I did not like how it looked in the crab claw. Then I put it horizontally but without changing the lighting.

Shrunk the image to make it more manageable. Tweaked colors and changed the idea - now it's a snake collecting easter eggs from nests. He's not eating them, I swear. Far less sinister this way.

@FrostPumpkin: That's going to be beautiful when you're done. I already love the owl's colors.

@cure: I love how your colors blend together so well on your clam. Not sure if I'd want to eat clam eggs, though. And if they're anything like pearls, won't we have to wait 10 or so years for those eggs? We'd need more than one easter oyster! :D

I think the "pink" basket is too bright. I also think the "white" snake will not read so well over certain default backgrounds.

Yeah, I'll be adding a nest with eggs, and more eggs in the basket.

Comments?

Currently at 13 colours including white. I'm going to have to be careful with my dithering if I want to include some water in there.
Any suggestions so far?

You're using a bit more than 15 colors (transparency counts, remember) and per rules you need a basket somewhere in the piece. I like where you're going though. It already has a nice look to it. I say keep those drab colors for the gator.

Pues mira, quedaría tal que así... : (It could be like this...:)



Bien ¿No? Eso sí, tendría que trabajar un poco más la animación de las alas y el abdomen, corregir el degradado y poco más. (Good, isn't it? But I should work the animation of the wings and the abdomen just a little, correct the dithering and little else.)

Still have to put in the basket and finish the crocodile, but I believe I'm done with the eggs at least ('cept for minor adjustments). Brought the color count down to 15, I just hope there's not a stray color here or there.

mon model de référence est assez difficile à retranscrire , je pense qu'il me faudra quelque essai pour y parvenir.

my reference model is quite difficult to transcribe, I think I will take some testing to get there.

One on the left has 5 colours for the frog's green, the one of the right has 3, and 12 colours in total.
If you squint your eyes they kinda look the same...

Cleaned up the lines and filled in some colors, I'm thinking about leaving it unshaded since the lines are conveying sufficient information on volumes(will probably end up shading it anyway , we'll see)

what do you think? thoughts/ideas on color would be really appreciated.

@Grandolium: the texture you're creating reminds me of charcoal or wax crayon, loking forward to seeing the result of your testing.

@Colonel_Bracket:Eventhough the left one uses more colors, I'd still prefer it over the right one, because the heavy dithering is creating texture on the frog's skin , which would work better if kept smooth imo.
