      Does it like a watermelon with slime dripping effect?

            That depends. Do you want your watermelon to have seeds or not? Or better, Does the purpose for which you are creating a slime dripping slice of watermelon require that it has seeds?

            You aren't giving anyone here too much to work on.

                Could you perhaps add some more lines or texture to the rind part of the watermelon? Maybe some lighter shading on the pink part closest to the rind? Hard to explain in words, but when you see an actual watermelon slice there is that thin layer of the inside part of the rind that is a close to white in color. Or seeds? Whatever your creative instinct tells you to do. Once you explained it I understood that it was a watermelon, but not so much from a first glance with no explanation.

                  Sorry, but you could do so much better. Look at a picture of watermelon; the pink/red fruit (seeds or not) fades into the white part of the rind, followed by the green skin, with a uniform cross-section.


                  Neither your colors nor your shapes are right, and that's just the melon, (or would be). Presumably, the "slime" would not be seamlessly liquefied rind and skin, which you seem to depict here.
                  I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

                    I don't see a watermelon because the shape is wrong. It should be symmetrical, like the photo HB posted. The green should be equal all the way around the pink section. Adding seeds to the current image would only help me see you were going for something watermelon-like, but didn't quite get there.

                      It doesn't look like a watermelon to me, the "slime" also doesn't look much like slime either.
                      It looks thrown together without much thought.
                      Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

                        I'll take your word that you need green goo dripping from the rind. However, the green goo looks as though the rind is dissolving, which never happens, and this shifts one's perception away from it being a watermelon. If you're going to have goo, it probably needs to look as though it's not actually part of the rind itself.

                        And what's with the horizontal bands of darker and lighter greens? That doesn't happen in a watermelon either. If anything, like the photo HotButton posted, the dark and light green bands of the rind are concentric around the entire melon.

                        Watermelons are sort of elongated spheres where the structures inside the melon radiate out from the center -- there's no side-to-side shading. Instead any shading that's there radiates outward from the middle.

                        So for the seeds, yes, to remove any ambiguity about what this is, the seeds need to be there. And once again, those seeds probably ought to be arranged in a concentric sort of way that seems radiate out from the center.

                        In other words, there's aren't enough visual clues in your illustration that say watermelon, but there are plenty of visual cues suggesting it's otherwise.

                          There is little bit of that effect already in my watermelon that red tho white part. And what do you mean with the "slime" would not be seamlessly liquefied rind and skin, which you seem to depict here?

                              Should i replace all the white green with the dark green??

                                Not sure where you got those sizes. I would try this always up to date google doc with various social media pixel sizes.
