Thank you all very much for your comments. I agree with you about the high color count and I assure you this is something I'm constantly trying to improve in my work. It's just not that easy as I thought. But still, my very first pixel-art (that jellyfish-spongebob-thingy in my gallery) had 110 colors. For this one I used 56. I guess that could be considered a proof of progress... XD

As for the shading -- that was maybe the main reason for me to join "Pixel Joint". This site is consisted of nothing but great pixel art I can only learn from. The 50x50 pattern looks indeed kinda flat, as The B.O.B. said, but it's the only one I know for the time being. Hopefully, with lots of experimenting, in time, I'll be able to fix that too... =D

Thank you all once again for commenting on my works. And also for adding my stuff to your favorites!

PixEd, you're absolutely right. Should I decide to redo it, I'll probably cut the colors in half.

Metaru, I'm not sure I understood what you meant. Yes, the sand is "shaded" with multi-pixel brush. I know that's wrong now, but by the time I was working on this piece, I had absolutely no idea which one is the proper way to shade things in Pixel Art...

Ameki, the snail is indeed clacking his eyes together, as Rynen10K said. It's part of one SpongeBob episode's plot. The one where he's attacked by a flock of jellyfishes and uses Gary to hypnotize them so he can get away...

Yes, the main reason for this high color count is the transparency. As I said in the description, there could have been lesser colors if I knew how to "shade" back then...

But still, thank you all very much for your encouraging comments and suggestions! Your feedback is highly appreciated!

Thank you very much for the kind words. I'm not really sure how much time it took for me to accomplish this one because I worked on it like an hour a day. Two weeks... maybe more. But most of the time went for my efforts to make the whole construction look as close to the original building as possible, keeping all the ratios and stuff...

Thank you all for the comments. 15 colors are way too much for a piece like this one and reducing my color palette is something I'm trying to achieve in my work. I also agree about the left paw -- moving it a bit downward in the point of impact would definitely make it look better...
