Diminutive Dictator

The sketch above I did was for a dictator like boss character, and they wanted him to have some "Kim Jong-Il and Castro"...Because the setting was sci-fi, I threw a little "ED-209" in there to help the lil' bastard get around...It runs on farts too.
This weekend I wanted to see "Ratatouille", but didn't get to go..But I will. I did however get to see "Surf's Up" the other weekend and I really enjoyed it. I mean, Penguins are played out, but then again I guess there's always room for more than one penguin film..I mean weren't there like 8 Vietnam flicks in the late 80's and early 90's?...Anyway, it was a better overall picture than Sony's last outing "Open Season", as it had more enjoyable characters and story. I will say this that I really do like Sony's overall art direction, both in "Open Season" and "Surf's Up". The environments and character designs in "Surf's Up" were really impressive, and damn did the water look amazing.
