    Hey Kari, nice to see you here.
    I edited your post--I don't exactly understand the attachment feature either, but sometimes I can get it to do what I want.

    Nice, creepy idea. I really like the way you've added interesting depth to the background with the valley and mountains.
    Nice touch with the little sheep on wheels, too.

    best,
    emily

    That is so effing creepy. I could see many children being afraid of this style and many, or rather most, flocking to it. Personally I would've been in the "afraid" camp, but as I am now I am really loving this. I love how much depth the gave to the cyclops, and I like the fairy-tale nature of the background. Are you going to work this more? It looks very finished to me - depending on the style you were going for, the background could worked a bit more to match the cyclops a little bit, but it's very strong as it is now.

    Great work and thanks for sharing!

    This is really great. I like it. I think this could be very appealing to little kids, even if it does look rather creepy. Stylistically, it seems to border on American Colonial art mixed with garbage pale kids art (which kids loved).

    It works I think. Yeah. I could totally read a whole story about this or lots of other myth creatures done in this style.

    Emily- how did you fix the image? You must be magic. I swear I tried everything and it wouldn't work.

    Thank you, the interesting depth comes from copying a Grant Wood painting. So I can't claim it. I liked the idea of the cyclops boy showing up in a piece of folk art.

    Druvid- creepy is good. It's a sample for an art rep so it has to be almost finished to show what style I would do. But the idea is in an early stage and it may or may not survive.

    Psionic- Thanks. Yeah, the crazy arms, were one of my favorite details for this guy.

    it seems to border on American Colonial art mixed with garbage pale kids art (which kids loved).
    Jason- Exactly, I want to get things out of their original context. Try to reinvent old favorites from my childhood. . .

    Rares- Thank you I'm always worried about coming up with a good composition.
