Super neat. I like that the skeleton and the dog have a ladder up to the surface so they can enjoy Halloween with the other Trick or Treaters. This is really fun, and I like it!

This is really freakin' great! I like how the limited colour makes us focus on your style and design... plus I love it when digital gets some personality by using textures & stuff, this is so cool chicken girl!
