I had a lot of fun designing the character, especially his rollerblade/skate sneakers. The background gave me all sorts of trouble though; I wish I'd had a bit more time on it, but this week's been extremely busy for me. Good thing DA extended the deadline.
The 'wonderful world' sign is a reference to the game's Japanese title "Subarashiki kono sekai", or 'it's a wonderful world'.
