I like pixelart displaying snakes a lot.
I spend like an hour adjusting the colors after I finished so please feel free to c&c my work.
I like that snake.
You could've made the nature of the knot quite easier to read by increasing the contrast in the middle, maybe even introducing a new color for it.
A great interloop of snake and pixels!
The effort you put into the color palette payed off. It's vibrant like a jungle in both color and posture of the snake.
