lol...it reminds me of a heavily anti-war propagandistic Bugs Bunny cartoon, Russian Rhapsody I believe. I really like the rodent-like appearance of the robed man :)

I think it's the overall style that drew me in to this, because you can't tell much about it from the thumbnail, other than it has an awesome title.

The big version certainly doesn't disappoint me.

General good use of light and tone and some stylistic elements that add up to great art.

Yep, ine of those things has been living in the computer I ype this on for some time. He's my friend, but I've got to feed him mouses once a day or he'll eat my monitor.

Weird. This reminds me of dobby... remotely. Awesome job! Very gremlin-y.

Excellenté. Only thing I'd change is possibly make the mouth slightly more subtle - it seems too black, with no softening around the edge....but i spose that's a matter of preference =) Also, what's with the weird squiggly texture thingy?? I think it kinda detracts from the image when you fullscreen.

~pr0ph37~

P.S. Did you take inspiration for this from an M:TG card?? 'Cause for some reason it really reminds me of one (cant remember which though =S)
