>_> I've not been checking my messages ^^;  Sorry for the lateness XD But thanks :> It was rather fun working on this piece :> Spent a while designing the characters in there, was really happy with the result, and ended up thinking up a really sweet story about them XD Would love to draw it some time since it would be nice to work with new characters - all refreshing and stuff :> I'm kinda sad I can't draw the story for the competition this year because I won the last one, but I'd like to draw it for fun anyway :> I just hope the piece has helped inspire others to think up their own story and enter the competition as well, would be really nice to see what they've got :>

It is, indeed, very inspiring. Regardless of the amount of details you get with a fully illustrated comic, this picture of yours tells a story. I think the unknown elements to story spark ideas in the viewer for their own fleshed-out story.
