ugh don't read too much into this edit as all i can get to atm is ms paint which is frustrating me.

^ was trying to show some translucency in the material which becomes progressively easier to do with less detailed forms.


just to point out cyangmou'se edit.
i can't see his image host here so i'll need to use words instead of a graphic...
he adds some details in pink which is a complementary colour of green.
this is pretty common practice such as gold highlights on blue armour.
in contrast, notice the blue underlighting is next to green moving away from yellow (which is the range of the source)?

these things aren't requried but its good to be concious of the nice effect this has.

Thanks I was trying to figure out the issue

@Decroded I see but I do sorta understand colors well as far as basics like dark colors with dark like blue, red, and purple but I just don't get what?... I am doing.. wrong? I don't know but I am trying my best

Nah I wasn't saying you're doing anything wrong.
There are things to fix in each of your iterations but its difficult to say exactly how to fix them until you make some decisions.

If this piece you had a particular use we could say "doing THIS would be better for THAT use for THESE reasons".
But since you're just practicing drawing skills I wanted to give you more options to explore.
What direction you choose is up to you  :y:


For example Cyangmou is a professional artist who produces game art for a living.
I think his instinct is to choose a "saleable" style that stands out against the competition.
This means it has interesting colours and character, and higher contrast and outlining that stands out against any background.
Understanding these choices is something that everyone can benefit from even if you choose not to use them.


At this point you should at least decide on the material you want.
Posting some references of what KIND of slime you like would help as I don't think you're quite sure what you want yet.

Anyway I'm rambling too much so I'll shutup :-X
