AWESOME! your kirby looks like the same shading technique I use on mine. The the only difference on mine is kirby's "new ability" that I added. Its like kirby's 'THROW' move, but it lets him throw more "useful" things like whatever is nearby. In this case, its a solid steel wrench. Its on my page. I made lots of images, but only one is on my page.
I was hoping to share images and exchange techniques with you.
