Well thank you for the compliment! I disagree as far as the abuse thing, but I respect your opinion. Personally, I think some would prefer an actual depiction of a phobia from the perspective of a person suffering from that phobia, as opposed to an image of a subject displaying irrational fear of something. However, I do think there is a place for both kinds in this contest Thanks again!

It was actually modeled after an airgun, not an actual gun

Haha, I'm glad someone spotted that. That's exactly what I was modeling him after From my research it shouldn't be a copyright problem in the way I've used it, though. Thanks for your concern!

Ouch, okay that stings a bit considering I spent many hours over a couple days on this. It's supposed to be incongruous, that's the surreal look I was intending. However, clipart it surely is not. Each of the gnomes was drawn and vectored much larger and shrunk down for the design, perhaps that could be why you think it looks that way? I guarantee you it was a single idea from the start (actually there was a bit more to it initially. I had included a scope with a gnome manning a telescope inside, but I decided to take it out.)
To everyone else who has voted so far, I'm really quite thrilled with my rookie debut here and you all have made me feel very welcome. Thanks wooters.
