    I prefer the colors in #1, BUT #2s colors really fit the render better, so all in all I'd say #2.

    Originally I was going to make a sig around Pikachu, but than I couldn't make anything fit so I turned his layer off and focused on a background. I accidentally turned the layer back on and thought it looks good.

    I kinda like the lighting but he just looks really randomly placed there, maybe thats also because we can see his/(her?) entire body?
    the text is really distracting too, I' d leave that out.
    v2 for me definitely.

    Actually I was thinking of taking him out and just leaving the text.

    i like the colurs in v2 better but on the other hand i think yellow red and green are a bad mix. Its the green that is bugging me a bit. Also, yes take him out, but dont leave things empty. Instead try finding a more realistic looking render (CGI) instead of the cartoon style. You have to many shades in this to work well with cartoonish, flat renders. Look for instance for a warhammer render maybe?!
    On second thought, you could also go Skyrim and make the cholor scheme more blueish and lower saturation. The effect reminds me of the Fus-Ro-Dah animation.

    Maybe it's your monitor, because where yours shows green mine is more blue.

    The blue glow is good for version 1 while the yellow of version 2 is also good, Pikachu looks swallowed though but acceptable. Version 2 is good because of the yellow color but looks like an old photo when compared to blue version 1 but in original color. I can't help but also agree that yellow fits in version 2.To sum it up I like both versions but one thing is sure, I like the theme and pattern from bg to the foreground. Chaos and Pikachu! :wilber:

    Darn, I can't recreate the second version's colors. Anyway, here is it without Pikachu. For some reason it's greener here than on my computer.
