And he's colored!

Gave me fits. It was going great, then suddenly it wasn't, and I got hung up because it felt like the color scheme was *almost* right but something was out of place, so I spent a while tinkering with it to try to figure out what. Finally I put a purple tint to the shading, and it seemed to like that (like I said, this picture has a mind of its own).

I still don't know if this is actually what it "ought" to look like. But for now, I'm finished. I'll start tearing my hair out if I keep messing with it.

Edit: Okay, so not *completely* finished. No one liked the background, which--yes, I'll admit it was lame. And I wasn't happy with the way the black lines looked, so when madmousemedia suggested I turn them a different color, I couldn't resist.

Both excellent suggestions, and thanks to everyone who made them!

Heh-heh-heh, I love the title, it goes with the pose so perfectly. I think the toothy creature is going to have a bit of a bellyache soon. I like this version with the dark background - it makes the magical fire pop out nicely. Really well done!

Yes, it came with the title, along with everything else. You can tell, because the title doesn't suck! :D

I swear, I've never drawn anything that was so...opinionated!

Thanks for the compliments!

That would really suck if he fell in though.
