Love the atmosphere and the feeling of the character! Nice work! Keep it up!!
intersting, very so. though my heart wil lalways be for the life action alice in wonderland jabberwock. because they took the originally, terrifying if still strangely humorous, design and made it better. still, a worth redesign here.

JABBERWOCKY
Lewis Carroll
(from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

He looks scary and evil-minded :D Love the simplicity (?) in the background, makes Mr. Jabber so much more a centre of attenion.
And a big YAY for cute characters in the background :dance:

Wow... that was fast. :D Definitely a different take, but I'm liking the stripes and the little blue nodules quite a lot.

Oh! Is that a caterpiller on a mushroom in the background! And a Mad Hatter and a Rabbit! So the smiling is the Cheshire Cat! Lewis Carol intertexuality for the win! Exclamation mark!

"Hmmm... it looks good, but there's something missing. I know! It needs flame throwers for eyes! Muuuch better."

I also love the creepy smiling thing in the background. Choose to believe it's the bandersnatch.
