Dark Crystal 2 inspired

Forget those blue gym bunny guys- everyone knows gelflings were the real original fantasy hippies.
Except of course for all those star trek people in kaftans....
Actually thinking about it I'll bet dark crystal 2 has a snow element/environment .
Anyway here is a wandering drawing with some odd creatures.
I couldn't remember/didn't worry what gelflings looked like, I think they have bigger almond shaped eyes, but I do remember an odd proportion about their bodies-( although I'm sure Brian Froud drew them as beautiful Rackam like things).
Well I could have googled but I didn't and strangely I haven't bought the 'art of dark crystal' yet after all these years......
Its 'reminiscent of' not 'fan art' anyway.
(The four eyed arboreal walrus cat is the compulsory comic relief type animal).

Hey Lach

Nice pic man. You've now given me something to do this weekend as well. I got the special edition of Dark Chrystal ages ago and am still yet to watch everything on it. Such a fricken cool imaginative film.
