I'm a big fan of your submission, CBMeadow, but I was wondering whether you'd considered a more purple colour scheme for the rear legs etc. This would match the head and thus require less colours on a sprite, and I think it'd be a better combination with the red than your blue colour is to the green. Just a thought.
Also, Yilx, your scorpion is absolutely fantastic, but the navy blue on the exoskeleton is really giving me Dark-type vibes. I'm not exactly sure which colour would be best in its place, but maybe using more of an indigo hue would reduce those connotations.
In summary, all entries should be bright purple. :p
