There seems to be a few too many colors on this guy- I count 9 right now. I'd say 6 or 7 should be more than enough, especially with only green to worry about.

Is he supposed to have something inside of him? Otherwise, I don't see what that stripe could be. Just looks like he's got a stick stuck in his belly. :0

Have you seen Jad's avatar? That might give you some idea of where to take this.



Also, google images is your friend. Just look up slime or jello, and I'm sure you'll find some decent references.

Wow, now that is awesome!
Now I think you should work on the eyes and mouth. (if you want)

comments about the animation:
It looks like he's jerking himself forward real hard, then jerking backwards real hard. Use more frames, and make his lower body move less/more.

I think it needs to look more blobby when it moves. Maybe something like this?:

You can try to do something like this
if you want it to be more solid than jello, and you could add some cool stuff like some "slime" sticking to the floor when its lifting up or something.

Also, your gif had frame overlap so i fixed that:

You could possibly up the contrast on the slime a little more, the back end seems kind of weird during the animation, and if you exaggerate the extremes of the movement a bit more I feel like it would look more impressive.  Right now it seems like its moving reaaaally slow.
