this have improved but still has room for improvement. black outlines are being overused, and that's flattening the image. your linework needs a lot of cleaning, notice on the tree how it varies from 1 pixel thick to 2 pixels thick. dithering could help create more diffuse light from the lantern. the shell has banding, that light yellow isn't helping or conveying any accurate information about the volumes of that area. parts of the turtle could use more contrast, and the highlight he's getting from the lantern should be much brighter.

I'm going to send this back due to queue voting and general technical issues, but I encourage you to open a WIP thread in the forums, improve it through advice received there, and resubmit it for approval. this has potential, it just needs more work.

 This is much better! I'm pleased that you put him in a scene.

You can still add a link to the progression of the character in the description, if you would still like to show that off.

From the rules:

No works in progress (WIPs). We're not too strict on this one...just don't submit half finished pieces. This also means no WIP animations uploaded as final art. If you want to show your progress feel free to link to an external file in the piece's description. Remember, this is a gallery."
