The Wormtress (worm-matress) was founded by someone, and therefore named by him.

As a very dangerous creature by nature it is advised you stay away from one on sight, although they soldem come to the surface, they have the ability to move at 40 MPH for a period of five hours straight without getting tired. They eat about ten pounds of meat a day and love to crunch on Fire Lizards, but when they get the chance they will eat anything that moves, even their own kind. Their anatomy resembles a worm, though they are more matress shaped than cylindric. They dwell near the center of the earth and have large teeth (3x bigger than shark teeth) that have enough force to rip through gold like paper. They have small wings that, as far as we currently know, have no use.

Also they taste very very good.

EDIT: I removed the background, and I'm glad that i was able to. (See the old one below)

 Very good

Your oppinion matters a lot, thank you, thank you very much

As for the colors i considered less, in fact i added the last brown in an edit because of a free color, i will edit it though.

Thank you so much for the help!

I understand now, my bad.

This artistic choice you made is ok but it is smarter to remove 1 color (color conservation) somewhere, like maybe you can work with 4 browns instead of 5. Just keep stuff like that in mind for future work. Another thing is you have 2 greys that use a total of 12 pixels. Maybe just one grey could work too. Its these little things that matter in skill development.

Best of luck in the challenge. You did a nice job and you have been improving and persevering and your effort does show. You shuld be proud of yourself for having the personal conviction of self improvement. I am proud for you, if it matters

Yes, i re-did it. I noticed the BG was transparent and that added a color, so i used black instead so that i could have 16 colors, for the challenge.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/3/2011 15:24

I see no transparency. I just see a black BG and I swore it was transparent when I added to your gallery.

xxmantisxx (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/3/2011 15:20

16 Colors are the max and transparency...

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/3/2011 11:30

useless BG :/

xxmantisxx (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/3/2011 10:25

In that case let me get an edit underway.

 it only needs to be an underground creature. not pixelled underground.

xxmantisxx (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/3/2011 07:43

Then i couldn't enter it into the weekly challenge, because it wouldn't be underground. Afetr the challenge I'll change it.

The character alone is better imo, I say get rid of the background.
