I totally see an alien space pig in there. Am I allowed to move the pig around the canvas (that is, change the composition) when it's done? How strictly do we have to follow the initial drawing? Do we only use it as guide of sorts?

Are we allowed to chop up bits of the picture? Or does everything in it have to stay as it is and we just pixel over it?

Hey, it's Charmander! Nice color choices, however, I think the circle approach you have isn't working very well.

@muffinette
Here is an edit for ya

I really like your idea. The the that I think your work needs the most is contrast. Try grabbing the darkest value of the lizard and pulling it down much darker and same with the middle value. I think you'll find it gives him much more depth. Also, the rocks he's standing are fighting for attention. Their color is too saturated and it draws your eyes to them, instead of the dinosaur. Alot of the colors could be combined to reduce your color count(example the bag could be the same color as the dinosaur) But I didn't want to spend that much time on my edit.
Also added a tear for emotion

I need help with the no-transparency constraint.

I'm a total newby, I use Graphx2, and I'm not even sure there's no transparency in my work: there's always a transparent color in the layers manager.

Is it ok if that color is not used in the picture, or do I have to desactivate some option somewhere?
