I have to say your quiet the master of the arts. Both the drawing and coloring is very well done and crafted to perfection. The distinction of effects and background somewhat amazes me to an odd extent.
Holy shit, this is awesome. The funny thing is, what I like most about the picture isn't the excellently drawn creature but what you did with the background. The contrast of the slightly darkened orange and those black... things... and how you added this little colorshift gives a strong dynamic and somehow retro-ish feeling. Great work!
