i like this piece. the colours, while muted, seem to work well. normally when goblins are depicted they are shown with bright colours, or all together too hapy. the detail and sobriety on this particular piece caught my eye because it was different to all of this.
thet cross shading which seems evident throught the piece seems to work really well and give the piece a really old timey feel and make it seem more that it was coloured by pencil rather than by computer. this combined with the muted browns and greens gives the piece an overall startiling effect.
the shading and where the shaddows are positioned seems to make this piece almost jum out of the page, and the expression on the one visable eye staring at the bullet really adds a sense that the character is jumping out of the screen.
the pointy style of the shoes, bullet, fingers and gun give a harshness which would otherwise be depleated by the colour choices where the minor shaddowing under the feet make this piece more than just a character, adding a simplistic but highly effective sense that the character is actually standing on something.
over all this piece puts me in feel of WW2 Russia, yet with that fantasy element which just makes it perfect
