Why is the shading on the tail in the newest version worse then the 2nd newest? ???

Also, I love the limbs as they are, personally.
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)

This is vuckin sweet. The only thing I see is a slight awkwardness in the limbs, do you have references? I'd love to see this get all surreal, mangled twisted long legs or some stuff, I dont know. Your pistons are firing, more please. You're talented, nurture it.

Thank you very much! :) I don't know if you should call it talent because I always remove some pixels here and add some pixels there not knowing what it will be looking like ^^
But I sure made some improvements though my "shading" is very basic.
I had a reference when I started working on the small one (x1 size) but I think I deleted it
Here you can see some pictures of what those shrimps look like :). I didn't color it white because i found it boring somehow.
The limbs and the scissors should be smaller and transparent also but I dont know how to create that effect and it's hard to find good reference pictures of them, because they are only like 2 cm tall and you need a very good/expensive camera to catch them.

because I spent a lot of time on the head
and I didnt like the look of it so I decided to repixel it (again... ;D)

Ah you posed it a bit, like the way its done, as well as your efforts so far =) Now I think the highlight on the 'bulk' before the head is a bit too strong, as well as it being too saturated. Perhaps you should consider another brightest colour than white, so it is also usual on the rest of the body.

The light you added conflicts its light source. Scale's light scource is coming from behind it.

Just wanna say, since the messy first version, this has come a long long ways.  Good job  :y:

Your lighting has been improved on the overall, but I actually mend the head itself, I misunderstood the shrimps anatomy haha. So what I mend was the part with the more red mark on it, which contains the brains and whatnot.
Furtherm you should remove the hars black lines on the 'inside' of the body, as well as remove the shade below him - it is distracting and not made to be finished yet, and therefore out of place.

About your further changes: It looks like the lightbulb in the image only affects the head and the first 'bulk', but the rest of the body seems to be affected by a lightsource coming from the other side.
