When I first saw the top half of the image I thought these were going to be similar to those card characters from Alice In Wonderland. I really dig the head pieces, these all fit into the rest of your imagery quite well.

It would be interesting to see these tilted at an angle showing hundreds more in line like a long wall spreading across the landscape.

Thanks areon.

mr. sean, they're like high priests or popes of this alternative world that I create. Each one represents a different aspect of my subconscious desires. In a mirror-darkly kind of way.

I'd love to see these done in a larger scale, maybe with text, a'la Szukalski's home-brewed mythology.

Good stuff, they'd look wild as puppets.

As usual great designs. These would be awesome as the six highpriests of some demented religion in an apocalyptic sci-fi setting. The lower par of the image is a bit boring though - I realize it's supposed to add a kind of suprematist dimension to your composition, but I'm not sure that works. The feet make it a wee bit ridiculous. Hope you don't mind the crit.
