At the end of 2000, this was the first attempted picture with a shaded background.
I'm impressed with the way you shaded this thing; it adds a sort of convenient feeling to the picture while at the same time letting the natural aspects of the image such as the cuteness and the humbleness out. I also enjoyed the little details you added throughout such as the barber shop to the windows to the awnings to even the XL Burger itself, you truly have a knack for designing Simpsons like characters and I hope you keep doing this stuff in the future.
I'm glad you like it, although the picture, IMO, is a bit wonky. I can't believe this is almost 13 years old!
