[WIP] Another abomination

on: March 14, 2010, 06:24:31 pm
A while ago I posted a piece of pixel art here(http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=9598.0).
Afterwards I decided to make a revamped version of it, but I'm having trouble deciding on how to continue on it, and would really appreciate some advice and critique. 

ver.1


Thank you in advance.

I love this.  ;D

but since you know what you're doing, let's move from ass-pat to crits.

First thing I notice is that the teeth stick out too much.  obviously you intended them to be important, but they seem to be independent to the rest of the monster.  they're all equally white when aesthetically the back teeth should be a little darker.

I think the wrinkles around the mouth could be a little more natural.  They look raised and strange, not like wrinkles, unless that's what you intended.  Some simple definition on the inside of the mouth might help lots, as it's too black now.  a few darker shades used sparingly would help as well.  Simple edit:

I'd edit the whole thing along these lines but I can't now.
EDIT:
Oh yeah, and the neck/body should be farther back on the head, if it's supposed to work like a normal neck.  Maybe make it more curvy too?
Capiche?
Nice work.  I like it's grittiness.
Keep it up
