Also, I know that you are drawing from many mythologies, but it irks me that you've mixed Roman and Greek names in the design. I'm pro-Greek.
Well, the style I will not defend, as it's obviously just a personal preference thing. I actually tried a different style originally (more muscular/less cartoony people, etc.), but found it extremely difficult to make it valid with 6 colors, so I switched to a style that I felt was more suited to fewer colors (the design ended up taking around 14 hours in total because of all the redrawing/recoloring that I did)- As for the names, I was originally going to go with all Greek, but I got stuck on J and couldn't find anything else I liked, so I went with Juno with the excuse that it adds to the variety :P As for the halftone, I tried to go for a much larger one this time to avoid problems as much as possible
