I'm a little confused. If it's oil, how is it an animation?

Thumbs up

Fantastic. nice technique

not sure what to make of the background though, is it an icy mountain side, a waterfall, or harsh streaks of sunlight, can't tell.
Maybe afew cracks and details might break up the smoothness of the floor and concrete blocks in the foreground, and adding little more contrast on the whole image might help - just a suggestion.

Great work

I thought I gave you your drubbing last week :-P
Cool image! Only little teeny thing that throws me off is the staff the guy's holding, and maybe his arms. It (or they, can't really tell) looks a little too thick, which gives the little figure something of the quality of a gaming miniature, rather than a normal-size human overwhelmed by a Lovecraftian beast. I think if you just skinny the staff up a little, it'll make everything seem a lot bigger, and you don't have to worry about it getting lost because of the great focus and lighting you've got going on.

Good work, I like the color scheme and the dinamic realization. An image between Lovecraft and Fantasy.

Very cool. It's also very dynamic which is a plus as well. No crits from me.
