This was done on an 8 by 11 piece of card stock. I drew this when the cigarette companies were first under attack and smoking was first banned from indoor facilities. I was attempting to depict the cigarettes as the victims and give voice to the ridiculousness of the times. I plan on elaborating on this further but with other mediums.

Wow, this really is a powerful image. It seems as though you're for public smoking? I kind of have to disagree with you. It seems more like this would be anti-smoking. You are showing the pain and misery you cause to the poor cigarettes. Then again, that's what they're made for.

The detail is really good in this. I love how the bottom one is just starting at you. It's quite a creepy image. It seems to have a taint of blue on it. It still manages to be cartoonish in its creepiness.

First thing I did when I saw this was chuckle out loud. That's a very good thing, considering when I sit down to review artworks I feel often separated from what I'm looking at in an effort to be unbiased and constructive. I love what you've done here! Seriously, a lot. Your shading and the way the objects interact with each other and the environment make the piece feel very tanjible, and the best part by far is how vivid the expressions are and how clearly the picture communicates its quirky tale. Short, simple, funny and creative. The ash tray edge looks a little too angled though, i feel the angle shouldn't be as steep, as to better accommodate the more landscape-esque view of the 'battlefield'. A great piece here that I enjoyed. Adding to my favorites, great job and thanks for sharing!

Nice! I like the shading and facial expressions!
