Amazing. Your colors are dead-on. So much texture, too. Great work & great sour-puss on Pickel Man's face.

Awesome Awesome Awesome. Cute, clever, beautiful. The pretzel and face are very well placed: it's as human as possible!

Great creative thinking on your part. Love the illustration. I would be sour too if I had that nose. The pretzel arms work well with the pickle.

I don't get it. What's eating him anyway? He's got everything going for him. Peaches and Cream complection, good connections in the deli business and still the glass is half-empty.
Ingrate!

A super quickie? Wow, I wish I could make something this awesome in no time! This is amazing!

What an original idea. Sometimes I think the quickies come out the best. Great expression, too.
