No, it's not the Grinch, but feel free to think he is :) My fault that I drawed goblin-like Christmas elves  :P

Am I right, when recognice the grinch and the santa at the left side?

Thanks for the detailed critique 7heSama!

The characters are a bit general, for example the first could be mistaken with Grinch, but it's not him (it's Business Elf) :) P1 is just the standard "Queen of Ice", she rule the summoned elves through magic and fear.

Unfortunately I'm bad with colors, so I understand what you've said, but it'll need time to use them correctly.

But I'm glad you (and all of you below) like it overall :)

Maybe I'm dense, but it took me a second to get the christmas theme - which I like, it has it's own style beyond that.

The portraits look great obv (can't tell who P1 is supposed to be though - enlighten me?). Tiles and UI also look very solid. Especially, the UI looks like it could actually be used for a game, which is a big part of why you got my vote. I don't really like the decision to make the units mono-colored, doesn't look good along side the detail in everything else. I think the color palette in general could use some work too - at parts the contrast is crazy high (white on red/green), and other parts are really bland (the flat gray background).

Overall a really solid piece, like I said, it's got my vote.

I love the portraits.

Thanks for the advice! I've changed the small icon, but the site still doesn't recognize it. Well, next time I'll check it before uploading - good to know that such a rule exist :)

Looks like this isn't showing up on the front page, which is a pity since it's really nice. Your preview is probably more than 10kb.
