I am colorblind, so i have to approach color very carefully. but i think i pulled this one off. Plus i captured some peril, some adventure, and some story. there's something going on with this lizard man- than just some crony, he's a character. He may not be the main character or even necessarily a "good guy" in the plainest of terms, but he can certainly be a protagonist.
I also feel like this could be a magic card image or something.
