These look pretty good! It does look a little "pillow-shaded", which is generally something to try and avoid, but I can see why with the aesthetic you were going for. With the frog it looks alright, because you have gone darker the closer to the back you went. The purple icon though ends up a little flat because the feathers towards the back have the same light qualities as those right at the front. Just something to keep an eye out for in the future :)
The frog looks awesome, and that rooster, just looks so damn good! Seriously, that rooster is just awesome. make a good avatar icon too I reckon!
Yeah pillow shading is mostly done badly, it can go well sometimes but in most cases, it should be avoided unless it's for a certain texture (Like glass) thanks so much for the really nice review, appreciate it!
Also, if you'd like to use the rooster as an icon (or any of my works) then go ahead, i don't mind at all :)
Why are that chicken look like a d**k?
