I like all the gold shading, it looks shiny. It also feels wonderfully out of place in that field. :XD:

Shading the gold was a bit tricky, but it was surprisingly fun! :D

Sorry for the late reply, I've been braindead from the convention and I wanted to write a proper comment :'D
You did great on this piece, I can really see your style coming along! The colouring effect, especially on the gold, is great.
To me, this piece represents Whickes' admiration of Micki, like he has placed her on a pedestal. His expression and posturing seem to say "I won't let you hurt her", showing his more defensive, protective side. It fits in with the symbolic element to the colour yellow very well.
Thanks very much for entering, I have added your piece to the group! :la::heart:

No problem, that's alright. I understand. :)
I'm actually using your shading style as a way of improving my own. ^///^
I wasn't really going for any kind of specific feeling other then the generic, 'King of the hill' srt of thing, but I'm always happy when my pictures inspire something else in ways of feelings and otherwise. :D
The moment I heard the theme was "Gold", I immediately thought of a tall golden pyramid with Micki at the top, Whickes a step below her, the girl with the yellow cat below him, (I can't remember her name) and Brett and his two cronies at the bottom. ...As I said, the original design was somewhat different, but I had a hard enough time drawing two people on the same paper, let alone six. :)
That, and currently I'm only confident in my abilities to draw Micki and Whickes, having drawn them separately once before.
