And the title in Japanese because it sounds cooler:
Anyhow, this world features a colossal tree that houses a city on the inside (which occasionally peeks out, as you can see). The Goblun (jumping fellow in the center) is an artificial soldier made of wood, cloth, and rabbit organs. It was crafted by Likli Jacker (lass on the crab-thing) as a fuel efficient alternative to their regular human soldiers and assigned as a personal guard to the princess. However, a faulty array index in the Goblun's firmware resulted in "Protect target" being replaced with "Crush target." Since no threat has yet come to the princess, this command hasn't had a chance to be executed. Likli tried to update the Goblun, but it hit her in self defense and ran away. Now it's a race between Likli and disaster to see who can catch the Goblun.
Originally I was going to cel-shade this piece, but once I got the gradient coloring in, I felt I couldn't bear to color it any other way. It took quite a while, but it was a fun experience and I'm liking the soft feel of it. Radial gradients are my friend.
The Goblun's design originally had tendrils/tentacles for arms. I have no idea why I did that. But eventually trying to find matching colors for it became such a problem that I scrapped them and gave him arms. As for his legs, they're based off of a meat tenderizer in my kitchen.
