Proud to be unevolved :P

Here a 4 frame animation with different version of the piece: 2 colours, 3 colours, 4 colours and 14 colours. Beware this is not a WIP animation.

I prefer the 3 colours version and shortly it is going to be printed on a limited number of t-shirts.

EDIT: some shots of the t-shirts ;)

Yeeaah, retro pixelart. Great job.

Just want to say that this is a top-notch design.

@ Delfos: thanks for the comment. I know what horror vacui means :D and as I was telling to Stickman I wanted to avoid a worst horror vacui feel. About the leves near the face: I agree with you when you say they may look excessive, but I wanted to close the hole between the face and the upper flag without stretching the figure further. Those little leaves seemed to be a good copromise to keep the composition both solid and readable.

Actually, horror vacui means "afraid of empty", so you aren't avoiding it.

I think the leaves near to the head are excesive, the face itself it's very detailed and could use some empty space around. I like the other leaves and I think they do complete the shape and the composition. If the empty space around the face it's too much, I would close it a little bit with the ... strips? of the sign.

I'm just saying, it looks pretty cool anyway :)

@ jalonso: thanks... this piece is intended to be printed on on light green t-shirt, but there's going to be a sand-beige version too, so the tattoo fleshy colour has been widely considered ;D .... Of course the gray tones are going to be replaced with a proper hue.

@ Stickman: Thank you for the comment. I know: those leaves could slow the reading, but they're placed for avoiding a worst horror vacui effect. Anyway the piece is going to be printed on a bigger scale so I reccomend to watch the picture on x3 or x4 pixel view; the crab silhouette would vanish... ;)

 I always laugh when people say they're, "unevolved".

This could also work using 4 oldie-time tattoo colors on a flesh colored BG. Its awesome.

Definitely prefer this version out of the 4. This would make a brilliant school badge or a football emblem! I really like the way you flipped the letters around. The only thing is the leaves at the side, as I first though it was a crab like creature.

Great design.
