Don't worry, Candy Man. I love you! =P
I drew a quick slime monster for you...when you draw slime things, I find it usually looks better if you apply the shading in reverse...have the darkest part on the top, and the lightest part on the bottom. That makes it look like there's some fancy refraction going on inside your slime, lol. Then just add the speculars on top of the slime to finish the effect:


It's not amazing, but hopefully it'll give you some ideas at least. o/
Edit: You could look at Jad's avatar, too. Looks like I might have been subconsciously thinking of it when I drew that, hahah.

You obviously need to take a break and learn from existing game art. Get an SNES emulator and grab some old RPG's. Or just google screenshots. And spend a few hours searching PixelJoint, compiling some favorites. Open them in your image editor and zoom way in. Get to know them. Extract methods and techniques of shading, etc. Do it.

The grass is pretty good! : )

as for the dirt, I suggest leaving it with those two colors (deleting the lightest one) and adding some darker shade in the intersections between stones
Bear with my poor english, I'm italian!
