Both the Labyrinth and Tim Burton are big influences on my artistic aesthetic, and I won't lie that the Goblin King was the first thing I thought of when I heard the theme. I'm not surprised that comes through in the design, although it wasn't intended to be a direct reference;)

Thanks!! I feel like since I began entering the derby, I've picked up some new execution-based tricks that other artists use and i've also realized what it is that makes me view other designs as successful or not. It feels like that's helping me to improve, and I'm glad you think so too!

Thank you too SnowQueen! That's really great feedback!! I'll definitely keep it in mind for future compositions
