The flesh of the mollusc looks really good when looking at the sprite 1:1. The sprite overall is well-rendered but it seems like there's a larger range of colours and less dithering overall on the main body from head to fingers. The metal in the picture is also a standout for texturing.
Reminds me of Golden Axe. Neat!
Levitating hermit crab ftw! :D 5/5
Really great work! Good palette and many details for 16 colours.
