Great progress.

Some of these guys look like they are melting instead of dripping ( especially the squid ). Maybe making the water beads a shade lighter then their background would fix it.

Great update!

The perspective on the salamander's head seems off, and the pink highlights on the manta ray work, but should be broken up, in my opinion. I also have sortof a love-hate relationship with the catfish-slug. It seems like something is missing there, but I can't put my finger on it.

The eel looks fine to me, he just has his head cocked to the side is all.

I'd say show more of the eel-guy's inner cheek or upper lip/mouth on the other side, like in the concept. Will give some more depth to his head.

Love these cure. Some of them seem to have thicker outlines than others, was that your intention? Mainly the top row has thinner outlines.

A really like these and have not much of a crit apart from: Give them more space. They are too cramped in their boxes. I would leave at least 4 pixels room to every side, if not more.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

@Lar: No, just sorta happened that way. I tried to fix that a bit in this update. Just a result of the style becoming exaggerated over time.

@ptoing: you mean widen the spaces between the boxes, or widen the boxes themselves? I admit I've kinda been cramming them in there to meet my arbitrary size restraints.



edit: widened the boxes 8 pixels and let a few of the monsters stretch out more.

I love these excellent colors and shading!

The top 4th one and the second one in the second row both look unfinished compared to the rest. I'm not sure if it is the lack of texture because of their slimy nature.

Also I love your sketches of them! Could you please possibly post them!

I most say that these are pretty awesome. Excellent work on the color pick, shading and the anatomy.
