The images look ready to start moving. I can't get over how mobile they feel carved out such static material.

The idea of Death chillaxing with a laptop is strangely sweet, actually. Hopefully, his online life is very active. :D

One would guess he'd own a dog (Cerberus) instead of a cat. I always liked Charon as a character, I imagine him to be kind and gentle while guiding souls over the Styx.

Ah, but their cute turns into murder when your furniture turns into desintegrating fluff after their claws are done with it.

There's this little thing called de-clawing your cats, or buying scratching posts :)

Wow...I had thought you just copied one of those 'layering' tutorials for photoshop and applied it to a nice drawing, making it look awesome, and the wood texture makes it look homely and fits entirely. I was just wondering how you got the wood texture when I read this was actually made of wood. WOW THAT'S AWESOME! You did a great job with this!
