Great colours, and the outline and shadowing gives it a 3D effect. Very interesting! :cool:

Why do I think 'pinball machine' in Toon Town? Very amusing indeed. Now get back to watching Simpsons or whatever you have been feasting on. . .

Maybe a landing field for Dragonball ... I'm kidding. This is a sort of neo-Lichtenstein-Haring derived cartoon style and I like it very much, better than manga or today's often most confused and dark looking comics style.

It looks something from the maya era ;) funny I have done other works in the past and other mentioned that they looked Mayan also... hmmm maybe a past life..

Caesar you really do pick up on influences... I am going to show you something I did recently that was a direct take on Lichtenstein..and Andy Warhol. They have since influenced my sense of color and form and given me a greater appreciation for comic style. BTW these were done from photographs as I have little ability to draw the human face.:o
