Crafty Pixel, that looks great!

I would kill someone to be able to pixelise like that !

@Lehmure: The dog is cartoon , the bunny is not, the head of the bunny is separated from the body! Good luck!
*don't hit me, please!*
@NixMillenium: good idea, thank you!

Hi!
This is what I've got so far

I wanna know how I'm doing.
Is the wood texture good?
Can you tell what those green things are?
Much appreciated.

Here's my WIP. All critiques welcome. The checkerboard and plain background is just a filler.

@Etherric_Shock, the plain BG helps not overpower the mouse. Consider being very subtle with the BG and perhaps lighter so you are using more of the vibrant shades in your palette instead of the gloomier shades ;)
 
ps: Too many colors. 1 red ramp 3 colors, 1 blue 3 colors, 1 green 2 colors, 1 brown/oragne 5 colors

Thanks. I'm not sure why, but I tend to stay on the darker side.

Looking great Mrmo, but what's with all the redundant colors and hysterical noise (hidden) in the bg?

I was doing colour correction which apparently made the background noisy as hell (like, 4 similar ones) O_O
Fixed now :D

How's this? Reduced the colors, changed the checkerboard to a solid color and fixed up a few misplaced lines.

Almost finished.

Now that I see it, the dark shades are an eye sore. Sorry.
