Believe it or not, I intended to add them all along. Well, I was planning to add something. I was caught between adding goblins/ ogres (which where too big I felt), headless plucked chickens, or another dragon (fight fire with fire... literally).

Awesome concept! Very good execution! Two minor criticisms:

The fire feels a bit flat. I think some highlights would have added contrast and shape to the flames coming out of the dragons mouth.

The halftones being at 90 degrees are going to create moire patterns when printed. Tjost has on several occasions pointed out that an angle of 22.5 or 67.5 degrees should be used to get the best results.

I rarely use halftones, but I will keep that in mind next time. Thanks for the tip!

I remember farting around with the angles when converting to bit map and not really noticing a difference, but I will take you and Tjost's word for it. Thanks again

The design is sweetness and hilarious. My only crit is the color choices. Not too found of the blue for the night in contrast with the green goblins and the orange fire. just my onion. I hope it does well this week.

This is so good! I love the demons'/goblins' stubby little legs and the expression on the dragon's face, haha.
