I can't say I liked green's dither version either, but I do really like that one, it makes him look soft and fluffy.  :crazy:

I've started on the body, making teddybear legs is quite some puzzle. Anyway, heres a dithered version of my edit aswell. Should I go with cell shading or dithering? If I add another colour to him the dithering will look more complete, and the large light-pink-purple areas will decrease wich will give him more depth.

Helping me with the legs is very appreciated!

Thanks a lot for helping a stranger

I like both versions, and actually prefer the dithered one. Not sure why though.  ??? I would add a color/shade to the muzzle though. Right now it feels left out having no color to it what so ever. Perhaps a blue.

I was waiting for someone to bring this up, I've had problems picking out a colour for it, but I think he fits in a brighter colour. But I'll try pick a nice colour for him without using too many colours.

Thanks for helping out!

I like the dithered version.
It gives the bear texture which is the only time I personally prefer dithering.

Excellent dithering skills! That does look good.

The belly dither needs some loving though, it lacks the smooth feel of the head dither...

I agree. Perhaps bringing the two high contrasting color in contact on the belly would be nice?

Thanks a lot, actually I'm very new to dithering but I've been practising almost every day.

Anyway, I think the problem here is the highligt area on the belly, on the cell shaded one. I'm not really sure where it should be, it looks off even before I started dithering.

The direction of the light on the head is different than the belly. Make sure you think about volume and where the light is coming from. I did a quick paintover of an idea. It might help you.
