Very nice.

I much prefer the reduced one with the exception of the light grey highlight on the pants. I think the lightest yellow might look more vibrant in its place.

Moved the left leg a little, finished pixelling remaining parts, tweaked colours a little.

2^4 - 3 colours.

Just reintesified the outlighting.

A creature of the underworld.

Left hand, right arm and hand, and right foot are yet to be pixelled.

It has no eyes (they are meant to be enlarged nostrils), and yes it probably doesn't make for the greatest stability standing on two toe-nails, but it limits the surface for thermal conductivity.

2^4 - 1 colours.

Shallowed shadows as suggested by Blick
Reworked right arm stub some (maybe not enough?) as suggested by legofreak
Replaced ugly taloned foot, now ugly twisted foot.
Some simple dithering
Spent remaining colours on some cheap hue variation over skin

2^4 colours.

Lengthened the tail and corrected stinger.

Tried shifting the left-rear paw and I think it looks a little better, but still wrong.

I have to agree very nice colouring, especially the pinkish hue of the boulders.

The only significant problems I have are the hard dark outline on the edges, and the inconsistent use of dithering between colours.

Here's a quick edit:

-the last 'node' (donno what else to call it) on his tail looks like it's facing the wrong direction. I think it'd look much better if it was flipped horizontally, so the 'stinger' continues with the curve of the tail.
If I understand what you mean then it would be like non of the scorpion reference images I've seen. This is the primary reference I used:
Though I only really refered to it early on and now I see the stinger isn't very accurate.

-there are some stray pixels along the outline of the body; on the tail, this works to your advantage, as it adds to the texture, but around the reddish parts, the legs, belly, and arms, these strays only seem to make it look messy.
Those aren't strays, they were put there deliberately to make the fur more like fur. When it had a clean outline it didn't look right.

-also, I can't pinpoint it exactly because I lack the proper anatomical knowledge, but there's something wrong with the legs/feet. Whether they're too short, or aren't sitting right on the feet or what ever, I don't know what it is, but it looks off.
I can see what you mean but I'm not really shure of how to fix. Edits from anyone would be appreciated.

and about that last node, its part where it joins the tail should be on our side and not the other side
that is if the part where it touches the tail is shown, it will face the right direction
Do you mean as though the tail is leaning into the image? The tail is meant to be held pretty much directly over the spine.
