Never Give a Goblin Coffee by MelissaFindley Never Give a Goblin Coffee by MelissaFindley
Never give a goblin coffee.
Trust me, it's a bad idea...

This little guy is the first in a series of little goblins I'd like to do for some various merchandise. They'll be available in a few months through my EMG Giftshop, but I'm special releasing this one here early, for coffee mugs only.

Yes, I'm aware he's blurry. Goblins start to vibrate when they've had too much caffeine.

That's how you stop their advance into your territory.  You set out barrels of coffee beans!

I did not know this beautiful picture was yours. I saw this drawing a couple of years ago and it inspired me for a clumsy and imprudent character  starring some scenes about safety and prevention for the children of my school. I couldnīt thank you then, but since Iīve found you here I give you thanks now. Your work is simply lovely.

He reminds me of Twitchy the Squirrel from "Hoodwinked". Near the end of the movie, they give him espresso so that he can go and get the police really quickly... He starts to vibrate and pings off the trees like a pinball off the bumpers in a pinball machine. Hilarious!

LOL I suspected that's why he looked like that. I vibrate when I've had too much caffeine, too.

I like the blurry part. Adds to the shaking that comes from eating coffee beans.

The vibrating goblin technique might work a little better if you didn't do it on the text as well... or better yet, if you copied the goblin + text into a new layer and drop the opacity and put it slightly above the original layer :)

Hey, nice idea. But if you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have understood he's vibrating. So... I guess it isn't quite understandable.. Would be easier with some speedlines or something, I guess. Well, think about it - it should be very easily understandable for merchandise after all.
The character design is cute and okay - even if he lacks a certain individuality - a significant "different" feature.
And last, I don't get the greay neck... METAL?

Anyxways, I'm sorry, I critizised so much, hope you don't view this comment as "backhanded", because it surely isn't. It's just not praise to heaven.
