The shape of the cube is great...really gives it that 'jello' look. I also like the fact that it's an elf. They always seem graceful, dainty....etc...but this image shows raw courage and an iron will to try and escape. The lighting is incredible.
What I love about this piece is it is a new take on an old monster.
Gelatinous Cubes are boring right? Not any more. This piece creates an evocative scene of genuine threat to the character - just what you need to bring your games or books to life.
