ooo, very nice one. ;D
I've only got one nitpick: Homer legs look a little pointy where his knees are. Make them a bit smoother, then I'm satisfied. :)

Hehe, not bad. ;D

I really can't find any faults with it, except for the knees, but those were already mentioned.

Pretty good. The knees have been mentioned, and other than that the only fault I can really see is that the blast from Homer's lower gun in his left hand seems to be a little off, tending to look angled down. Other than that, damn good.

A final suggestion though, if Homer is moving in some direction (I guess the right from this pic...) then you may want to have his top hairs travelling in the opposite direction to indicate that movement. Again, just a suggestion. :)

Well it kinda looks like homer is jumping backwards rather than to the side, mainly because his lower half suggests it, but other than that, it is really really good.

What everyone else said. Other than the knees (and this is a minor nitpick), I love it, particularly Homer's facial expression and his dishevelled hair[s]. Looks like a lot of work went into this. Great drawing!

*Nice.* What did you use to colour that? Flash?

For some reason I didn't have you pegged as a good artist before, skajme. Now I'm definitely looking forward to your next pic. :-)

However, there was no need to create a new thread for this. I've merged the two threads.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Now *that* is good. A perfect example of where simple colouring can look excellent, if done with care. My favourite bit has to be the flash coming out of the muzzle - quite cartoony, but it somehow suits Homer down to the ground.

*Applauds and also looks forward to the next thing*
