Great emotions on the character and the transparancy of the balloons is right on! I've been around "aggressive" balloons before. Kinda wierd!

Great! Very expressive illustration, I love the kid´s face, he is really frightened.
Beautiful pencil strokes in the background.

Great illustration. The perfect mix of lightness with a macabre twist-- just my style. Keep up the spookiness... the world needs it.

It´s very very funny and the expression is perfect and the movement. I like the atmosphere too.

So beautiful, the balloons are a cheer (just like the glow in the dark).
Simple but so cool and appealing.
I really love your great idea & technique for smiley green balloons against the dark black background.
I can feel a great sense of emotion here-just like the evil & the good.....
