Kelly - have you ever considered working in "heroic" proportions, i.e., 6 feet and larger?

The yellow-green dots look like a "miss". The painting was already done. As always, take with a grain of salt.

Lawdy! Lawdy!

Don't know about the technical aspects and all that, but I like it!
It gives me a feeling like GRRRRRR-Zoooooooom!

Looks like how I feel sometimes...I can almost hear those knives (blades?) clicking...

face, body and "arms" are great, specially the colors in the head; blue, green, brown, popping reds. that blue and brown are a particularly nice combo. I only have trouble with the lower half not supporting the weight of the top. not sure if its the activity of the body vs the inacivity of the background or what.

I like the movement, the guy/thing seems out of control. reminds me of the lost in space robot. :)

Haha! Looks like a crazy washing machine making its escape on a tricycle to me! :) (the fate of the tricycle owner-toddler I shall leave to others) I like it. Sorry, nothing terribly constructive in that comment. Er, hmm... I agree that the three yellow dots on the bottom dont' quite mesh with the rest of the painting. I think the colour just pops out at you a bit too much.

on a subjective level, this impressed me as a kid's version of a nightmare!... well, not that that has anything to do with anything, hehe :D... good use of colours, maybe except for the pink-white bit on the right of the uh, subject... and i have to agree w/ mame and timelady, the yellow spots are a bit distracting... but otherwise kinda expressive and imaginative :)

Okay, now I love 'em. Darn I wish I'd thought of that!
