I really like the way you implemented the legs on the eden snake, and the head looks more devilish, too. It even has a horn to use the likely Horn Leech flavourwise!
The downside is, that the new version lost a lot of the personality of the original design, especially the evil and sneering expression.
What makes your concept so great is the clever idea behind it, and a complex and busy design just tends to distract from it, so you have to be careful when taking this route.
O temporas, o mores!
