Hey guys, I'm pretty new to making thumbnails. Do you have any suggestions for me?

This is what I have so far, and the game is Twist Twist Away.

Maybe try different compositions, it's a little hard to tell what everything is and the text is a bit distorted.

Brighter colors would be nice too, here's a quick layout of how I think you can improve it.  I moved the eye thing to the right and made the pupil face away from the yellow square to make it look like it's being chased.

To be honest it looks a little blurry and jagged on that angle. I would suggest keeping it square and changing the colors. The colors from the Iskander thumbnail look great. The bolder angled text looks appealing also.

I still prefer Iskander's thumbnail by far to be honest.

Maybe Iskander will be kind enough to let you use it

You can go ahead and use it if you want.

Thanks. I'd like to learn, though.

What about this one?

Nice one!

I usually do not have good performance with black thumbnails though :)

Nice. I would definitely consider selecting this one if it came up on the sidebar.
