I dunno what to do with this really, so I'm submitting it now.
reminds me of dizzy prince of yolkfolk for some reason! Good job
TrojanMonkey, he's obviously under water, you simpleton :) (Though a bit more blue colour and bubbles would help make that more evident)
I think this is a wonderful character, very imaginative and funny. Of course, he will be no match for the Atomic Calamity! His pose looks a bit unbalanced, but it's hard to judge the anatomy of an underwater humanoid with hoofs for legs and a claw for a head :) I also love the colors of the character itself..
The piece is beautiful overall. The light yellow on the small pincer needs AA. The dark blue outline of the crystals below requires some cleaning.
The background should fluctuate with the character. A claw and an ice-theme does not incorperate very well. As a humour background you can have the beach, for an instance. Maybe have a tiny crab next to it's feet.
Apropos feets, why does he / it has hoofs? Is it an incarnation between lobster, man and something angulate?
P.S: The anatomy of the holding hand seems false, the thumb does not seem to start from the palm but the other side. It or has to be vertical along the outter leg of the secateur or horizontal along the palm over the fingers. But this is a minor detail. Your biggest problem right now is the bg....And the hoofs. <:
