Kudos, as always, too finishing another signature work... some great elements throughout! I don't think it's one of your best and it does feel a bit rushed BUT, your compositional talents and colour work pull it off.

I wonder... have you ever thought of adding motion blur to your work? I know it goes against the cartoony look / feel you have established BUT I think it would really add some much needed movement to the image.

Again Kudos... you continue to set a high standard for work ethic, quality and imagination.

Yer a credit to yer kind sir!

Got the axe out and I'm getting my chops back...

Hi, all. Thanks for the comments and kind words... Glad you like it!

Ken - Good to hear from you! How've things been going? Yes, parts are definitely rushed: It's harder to carve out as much time as I used to when you have a kid at home, as I'm sure you well know! As for blur, I'm never sure how much blur meshes with my cartoony style, and am ever hesitant to obscure work that I've polished with motion blur. I did it on the monocycle wheel and a little on the background building. I tried it a bit on the whole monocycle and didn't like it that much. Someone else pointed out that the gatling gun should have blur from spinning also, but I love how the gun looks so much, I didn't want to obscure it!

JMart - Thanks, wish i could work that fast, too! (If I could, I'd need a brain that could come up with these wacky ideas just as rapidly.)

Anyhow, thanks to everyone for dropping by!
