Thanks. You get the right idea: he's a bit tatty round the edges.

I love the fact that he's standing there in a regal like glory untill you realize he's not wearing any shoes.

Thanks. I have always thought of Oberon as a sinister character, so I am glad that comes across.

Seems alittle creepy, but it's done very well. I like it. He seems to have cold eyes, which gives him alot of character.

Thanks. Glad you like it.

I accept all your criticisms, but I'm glad you like the overall effect.

This piece is incredible, but a few things throw off its overall result - for instance, the lines on either side of his face to suggest cheekbones are a bit off-kilter, because one is more defined than the other. It looks as though he's only got one. As well, the same side's lip is a bit lopsided, another smidgen of pencil would fix that though. Additionally, there seems to be not a trace of bone in his fingers. I love the material around his shoulders and the color right below, that dark blue fading almost into purple. Your costumes as absolutely incredible, and though of cartoonish origin, you made an intriguing 'sparkle' effect that put a delightfully whimsical effect to the whole picture. Very pleasing to the eye. Good job!

A very handsome Oberon. I like the way you have limited your color palatte. Again, I appreciate the detail.

Art at its best.
