EVIL SCREAMING MONKEY BRAIN!!!! - Need Some Color Advice
Literally, that's how the title is spelled.
I did this based on a dream I had... something told me to draw the image like this and the colors I saw were very specific; Neon Purple but with Neon Green wings. I kid you not. So I sat at my board today, drew it, inked it, sat back and enjoyed my handy work, and scanned it in.
After cleaning it up a bit, I realize a problem; That color thing did not seem like a very good idea. So I started working on one with a more varied pallet... and now I'm stuck.
So, any comments and crits appreciated!

i'm actually liking the second image a lot more than the first.
when treated with such an absurd dichotomy of color in a flat graphik manner it seems more intentional. i loathe to use the word 'pop', but the treatment of flatness and saturation of color lends itself heavily to an almost iconic representation of color.
a crisp shadow layer would help define the forms a bit more.
hmmm just looked through your portfolio on your website. you really have a thing for heavy use of flat saturated color.
does the inside of your brain look like this?

i would say referencing, but somthing that sticks out to me, is that the inside of the wings where the wings flap over should be shadowed, or at least grayed.

Also, yeah, I tend to use a lot of flat color. I used to do a lot of shading and such, but it rarely complimented the line work, which is what I want more and more these days. I really miss when the line work of a good inker was just as important as the coloring and it's a bit of a return to it.
