Now all we need is some basilisk robot sentries (www.deviantart.com/art/Robotic… around the castle and some good ol'marijauna to get us "stoned" (wink wink) and this will be the most epic ball party for eternity!!

Gosh this is SO appealing.  I love the colours on the main figure and how you kept the detail low in the background.  This definitly makes me want to learn more about the situation.  Anatomically, I'm not the feet would bend out that much but it makes it look better and reads well so I think it works.  I'm really loving this painting, you did a great job! :)

beautiful as always, lovely design, composition, colour and lighting. If anything I think there would be more cool reflected light on the back of that fellow we see, a lot of lights and walls for it all to bounce off of. :3
