This is wonderfully "kitschy" and so very cute. The colour is vibrant and the mood of it is whimsical.
Her outfit, though steampunk, lacks the depressive quality and blends well with the atmosphere of the work in a fun and playful spirit without deducting from the outfit-appropriate quality. Background colour contributes to this. Shade is great, the lighting source ambiguous (likely ambient, yes?), but certainly doesn't subtract; after all, it's just fun. Good stuff!

Oh...and, dammit, the Octo's freakin' adorable. It looks like it probably squeaks, too.

I hope you aren't offended by my use of the term. When I went through your gallery, I saw some really amazing stuff (that black fairy with the iridescent wings was very beautiful, and the colour fades and blends were stunning).

Your style, even in the darker themes has a lively glow that I very much enjoy. It's good to see something that, for a change, isn't taken to some overly angsty extreme, and I love it.

I'm curious...what...species(?)...is your character, "Grunge"? He's got this...I dunnoh, kind of like a smart-assed menace to him. He's a massive brute, but that knowing edge he has in his face is far from the look of some dumb muscle.

Really, he's a neat blend of cool and bizarre, to say the least.

Thank you for sharing your talent on a public forum--it gives others nice examples of how it's done when it's done right.

Not offended at all! I really appreciate all the kind words about my work. I certainly love doing what I do, so it's always nice to know people appreciate it.

Grudge is one of my main comic characters. His species is my made up species called a Mharlach. There is definitely much more to him than strictly brute force. I cannot wait to get the script finished so I can start drawing the comic out. Issue #0 is set to release next March for me to take with me to my booth at Megacon. I created him while I was still in college - and he's one of my favorite characters personally, but I'm a bit bias because he feels like one of my "kids". :)

Very nice.

And I completely understand being attached to your characters; they are your creations, after all. I'd love to get a note when the comic comes out, if it's not too much of a bother...I think I'd like to get to meet Grunge and the interaction between him and his pretty little partner. The faces you draw are wonderful! (Really--the girl's cute) But that strange yet lumbering character caught my eye first--power does tend to draw the eye!
