(Michale Hacker skate deck) ~ This is simplistic, yet effective. The black gives this creature a foreboding and looming quality, yet the exaggerated, lanky features, and wide, pastel green eyes keep it playful. I like the various body part tubes throughout and how they chose to leave them transparent. The eyes and the stomach fluids are the same colour which helps tie them together.
What people think of doing always amazes me. I wish I could just see into some people's minds and see why they do certain things. The best part is that those things usually turn out pretty dang sweet. =)
