Oh my! This is so much fun. I absolutely love the way you played with proportions, but still retained Barnabas' character. And the background is just amazing. It adds, but doesn't distract. I really hope Tim see this.
A word of curtain though hun, in the fine print of the rules it says that no visible artist marks can be used, like signatures. That's why mine isn't signed. It would be a shame if something that simple kept you from the semi-finials. Perhaps you can Photoshop it out and update the post. <3
You are wonderful. My limited attention didn't quite make it through all the legalese. When I return home tonight I will remedy the signature problem. Thank you, I wish you the best in everything you do.
