Exellent pallette use, not really my cup of colours, but it has a very nice feel, got just some suggestions.

-Maybe give it a highlight to the coffe and shoes
-Maybe Coffee driping from the donut.
-If you are presenting the piece with frame and background, maybe you could AA it to the background.

Great work man, really ;)

How errie, never thought I'd see this horrific event of nature... teh eating of bebis! I agree with Chris though, since you used a frame, AA'ing the sprite to the background would be great. Personally I like flatly shaded sprites, however if you did add a shine you would have to mute it alot. Anyways the details on your sprite are excellent, good AA, good folds, etc. It'd be funny to see the 'father' have a bite taken outta his head from a past cannabilistic experience! ^.^u

you're wasting all your dark shades besides the blue higest one, I think. And your closest to white isn't very distinguishable either. Otherwise this is cool.

edit:



9 colours now, more palette representation, unified, AAed to background as suggested to see how it looks, lightening of the outlines locational by lightsource, some dithering ideas, a shadow?

Thanks for the crits guys. I did and edit based on your advice:

Unfortunately I did the bulk of the work before seeing Helm's awesome edit (which purts my pallette to shame again :D),
so there are probably still color issues... I tried to AA it to the background, though, and took a chunk out of the big guy's head (You were right, Dhaos, I think it adds some character).
I changed some other stuff too, like the shape of the right (our right) foot, and some of the folds/highlights... and probably some other stuff that I've forgotten.
Hooray!

EDIT:
looking at it, I think the bite looks... off. It wouldn't If I could draw, but... hmm...

EDIT (again):
Imade and edit of my edit based on Helm's edit... edited...

Down to 8 colours :D

He's so... purple! :D I like your shadow better than mine, the dithering's a nice touch.
Anyhoo... Thanks for all the comments, guys! I think I'm about finished with this guy for now, unless there's something horribly wrong that I'm still missing. Appreciate all your help!
