In my oppinion an avatar should be kept simple and readable, at least mine. It's nothing to stare at but rather an icon telling the person reading a comment or whatever who wrote it.
I have a shaded version of him aswell but it just doesn't work out. He's original colour was blue, but I didn't want to get mixed up with Gas13. He had a background with bubbles, seaweed and sand. A beak, a wet look, probably 20 different skintones, sunglasses and longer arms. I have been editing him for days, a few minutes in every occasion. I appreciate good simplicity more than advanced techniques.

This has tons of character. Do more and put 'em on this canvas >:I

and yeah, you accidentally cut off part of the end of the right tentacle.

 I like this. I'm not particularly fond of the shade of green you used, but as I'm a red/green colorblind person this could be just me not seeing colors right. 
Lack of shading is cool. Not everything needs to be shaded (:

why is the end tentacle not outlined but the whole rest of it is?  And furthermore, why no shading?

It's rather simple compared to the rest of your work.  As it is, it's basically just some flood filled line art.

I think this little guy would look great with some proper shading.
