There's something funny about that contest, since it's finished I still see some new colossus I had never seen before and I often think "woah that one is a hundred time more awesome than the winners!!" It's the case for this one congrat, it's great! and I truly think you should have had a place among the winners
Just curios on how it went? I'm going to check the contest. :> This is a very sweet contestant! What makes it so cool is all the details and your use of shapes mixed with a nice warm and dangerous colour balance.
