    Looks might awesome, although I'd tone down the lighting on Dr. Girlfriend, she's getting a little man-ish.

    other than that great choice of colors, and the characters are represented well.

    Hahahaha! You get a gold star for today. You really did a great job on this, and I am glad to find another fan of the fantastic show. I would fiddle with the perspective on the tubes on the Monarchs arms, they look a little off. And I would tweek the lighting on Dr.Girlfriend as well. The above comment had the right idea. Finally, his eye brows need to be HUGE. Like, freaky big, like antenna. Other than that, its great. Would love to see more like it...

    This is awesome! I agree with what's been said, Dr Girlfriend looks a little like she's finally got a mustache to go with that voice of hers.

    Henchmen 21 & 24 are perfect!

    Just one issue you really might want to look at...
    The way you've handled the highlights on his abdominal muscles, combined with the cutout at the bottom of his breastplate, make it look like he has a massive erection.

    I just saw that "erection" you pointed out. That is freaking hilarious, and unfathomably creepy.

    Heh, I see what your saying about the erection now! I thought you were just talking about his package, but when I gave it a second look, I got what you were saying. I'll fix that up.

    As for his eyebrows, I didn't make them nearly as big as they are in the cartoon because I was going for realism, but I'll try making them bigger and see how they look.

    I agree about the tubes. They were surprisingly hard to draw. I really hate drawing that dramatic upward-angled perspective, and I'm not very good at it. I'll see if I can get them right. I'll try and fix up Dr. Girlfriend's face, too.

    Thanks for the comments!
