Ha! Cool, it has that innocent creepiness going on, like it should. Only thing I can crit (and this is just my personal taste) the feet look a tad too flat, but I don't think it takes away from the work anyways.

nice job mate - you've done a really good job - especially capturing the look of the animations. I might lose the background, as it looks a little weird with him standing on some floating floor boards - and also the perspective is not lining up.

well done!

yes this is awesome...but i agree with the feet, they do look a bit flat but overall, i love it.... and as far as Jay said, I think there should be a portfolio section for best work as well as getting that Gallery to work...I would to see this in the Gallery

Very nice job tadpole3159! "the corpse bride" style is a bit thinner and taller but your work is still really good!

I'm a big fan of this, it looks really good, keep it up. I always try to go for a Tim Burton esque style but either get too detailed or something else makes it not look that way. But you seemed to nail it, good job.
