It looks fairly good. I've only used GIMP to make my signature down below, with the badass explosion and the parakeet smack-dab in your face and the stacked words of PARAKEET pelvic-thrusting your eyes.

I love the second, modified one. In my opinion, the stars look a little dull, though. It looks like you used the Pencil... maybe you should try the fuzzy circle brushes with the Paintbrush? The lighting also is a bit off; it doesn't make sense to have a small, illuminated circle to represent the lighting. Look at this as a reference, about half of the planet is lighter, though subtly. I also think you should make the planet's outline more recognizable on the second one. :0

For the stars, I just used "Hurl" in the "Noise" effect and made them white. Truly I don't think the starts look bad, they scream "HD" to me Hmm, I guess it would benifit it I did highlight the outer edges more.
One thing, I don't have the project since this was made a month ago, sorry.
But thank you the tips

Blending the colours and shades is only necessary if you intend on using gradients (for your sky, in example). I'd recommend making your sky look like the remainder of the artwork, and not using gradients at all. Unless, of course, you want to get more "realistic" and do everything with gradients.

I don't think harsh criticism is necessary, as I've seen artwork that is much, much worse in commercial games (recent commercial games, I might add). XD That said, you might want to be sure the next person you draw has a discernible chin.
Nicely done, overall. I like the way the hair resembles hay. Gives it a strangely natural look. =]
Looks pretty good to me. I like the shadowing, it really give it some depth~ Have you just started playing with Corel?

...If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails....
