Awesome, I like the different sets of lighting of the background and the foreground.
My only quarrel however is the girl's breast on the bottom (shocking I know) the right one seems to hang naturally but then the left one is larger and raised. Just seemed weird mainly cause you put a really strong line there compared to the consistant lines on all the characters.
I really admire that you've kept to your colouring and character styling but have tried to evolve it is awesome, this new method seems like it would require a lot of patience.
Good grief, just all that detail in the background is impressive. That is not to say that the rest with the pirates isn't awesome as well. It's like there are two different pictures at once, combined together to make a large awesome one.
Oh man, the background is absolutely stunning with the colours and the detailing. I've seen how much time you've put into it, and it really shows.
My only irk is with your characters. They're really well designed and they really fit with your style, but the anatomy feels rather squibbly and since your characters are in the foreground, its a bit off-putting to me cause it starts to feel flat the closer to the bottom of the image you get.
Still, I love the colours you've used in this, because they work awesomely, and that lamp, cause its so cool.
