If you are going to improve upon this, please show me when you're done! One of your fave book characters of all time? It's a small world!

Here is a poem I wrote about it.
adamantiel.deviantart.com/art/…

Hopefully it will inspire you to do more artwork of it! I like how in your picture the pied piper has a flower in his toe. It shows me that deep down, the Pied Piper has feelings just like you and me and that he is really a tender guy--with a very dark side. I want to know what makes him dark, and the flower is a clue!

What style would this be considered? I remember seeing characters like this in some turn off the century depictions but can't recall. Great job btw it really brings me back to a great time in my life when is in grammer school and read old children's novels

I have to admit it is growing on me a little XD I don't think it'll ever get to the point where I'll drink it straight black without sabotaging it with lots of milk and sugary substances :P How do you take yours?

Well i prefer mines with 2 teaspoons of sugar and a hint of milk. Only when i get depressed or need to cure bad JUJU where i drink black coffee. :p
