Little Dragon making preparations for the Halloween Party
PS ~45mn

Even though I'm not a huge Halloween fan, at least I find it the most interesting holiday to get funny pics ^^

Ashton : Great pic, I love the style it reminds me of old school illustration, almost "pop" like style
budji : huhu, wouldn't want all easter bunnies to be like that, it would give me a hard time to have my fill of chocolate ^^
InesD : Funny pumpkin

I just love midsummer! And when you get really drunk you see the forest trolls dancing round the May-pole or midsummer-pole or what ever it's called in english.
Of course it could be that it is your friends who are dancing and you're just really drunk...:beer:

Gah, aelwine, while I simply worshipped all your other work... The fact that you can not only produce stunning and heartwrenching (I live in California; we only get 2 seasons here: the raining season and the non-raining season. Makes me miss Russia so much...) landscapes, but also astoundingly cute things of a far more jovial manner... ;_; If I could ever learn to paint like you, I'd die happy.

In short, wonderful job.
