Aside from needing to be a bit more.. "Glistney" I like it. Maybe the next step is some wicked glass eyes.

Great stuff, you did very well with the sculpt. The colouration seems a little off though. I suggest mottling in some yellow tones either through drybrushing or through stippling over all.

I agree. It might have been the movie grain, but I remember Gremlin green being a little more subdued. The pink of the ears would benefit from the veins not being as sharply defined too.

Otherwise, the sculpt is excellent!

nice work!
First off, great sculpt, you should be proud of your hard work. I especially like the shot of him in full character ;)

Con Crits:
overall as pointed out by others, the color is a little too blue-green, should be more of a dingy green with yellow tones, especially on the ears. All the pics and clips from the movies I found had a similar color tone, so I think that would help it look a lot more true to the films.

The ears:
they're a little too flat. You could have gone a little deeper and more organic in the folds and cracks.
If you check out this still image: http://blogs.the217.com/thelowdown/files/2008/12/gremlins2.JPG

or even this toy

you'll see what I mean.

The good news is that a repaint would do a lot to fix that without having to resculpt it. I would do a base wash of yellowy-beige-green over the pink. Then I'd make a highlighter and a shadow based off of that yellowy-beige-green color. Take the shadow color and darken it up where the ear gets closer to the skull and and delineate some heavier folds. If you want to get fancy a mottled effect would look nice, but isn't necessary. use the highlighter color to make sure the folds don't look too flat.

Whether you go back into it or not, it's still great stuff!
