Awesome, Todd! I always love how you choose where to put the detail. Happy New Year!

Tom Kidd said...

It was nice to see the skin texture when I clicked to see the larger version. I'm compelled to reach out and stroke it just to know what that surface feels like. Although, I'd use my non-drawing had just in case he's hungry.

The bigger view is awesome! As Tom said, the texture is extra good.

So other worldly yet a friend, I think-he's sweet, and his world is beautiful. perhaps he can make 2007 his own invention-this fantastic creature.

A beauty, and fresh energy in this!

SY said...

So that's what my back muscle pull looked like in personification! Like this! No wonder it hurt so much!

Seriously, that's a lovely one. I especially love the lighting on his back and how it practically glows. Happy New Year!

Kurt Klockau said...

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. You have absolutely fantastic work on here!

Maleficium said...

hahahaha! I love how his has those little ass wings and that huge body. It look like he couldnt fly if his life depended on it although it would be fun to watch him try. It looks like he would ball his hands into to fist and squeeze really hard while looking at the sky and going nowhere! lol
