First off Emlan - I miss commenting on your art! I don't get to comment at DA much anymore so I mostly get to come and check out your gallery now and then but that's it. I really had to comment on this one though.
I disagree that it's boring, I think it's fantastic! The layout, the color palette, the very concept - I love all of it. It makes me think of a book cover or something, and I especially adore the mushroom hair
