Hello! This is my first post on the WIP forum, so please bear with me. I've spent a decent bit of time working on this image and I think it's about as good as I'm able to get it on my own.



256x256 using the sobeachy8 palette by Snowy Owl on Lospec -- https://lospec.com/palette-list/sobeachy8

I'm concerned it feels a bit too boring right now. The squid's front side feels very flat to me. I'd also like to incorporate more motion into the piece if I can, but I'm not sure how to do that without compromising the silhouettes. Finally, the shadows feel wrong to me, but I can't really place why. I've done my best to make them possible within my (admittedly very limited) knowledge of light in stuff like this.

I would appreciate any and all criticism. Thanks in advance!

Just notice the mouth of squid is more like a peak.
Example: https://ocean.si.edu/sites/default/files/styles/photo_full/public/D1000090-scaled_1.jpg?itok=_Dx5V-yQ

Also can add a small duck toy in beetween characters. Another idea is add a wall on the background, squares tiles or somethings like bathroom wall.
