I'm partial to the devil's jacket detailing and Faust's hair, (reminds me of Count Olaf). This story subject makes me want to watch Tombstone.

The flames around the hooves is a fantastic touch!

Interesting, can I know how much time you spend in this type of artwork?

Sure, I think it takes me about 8 hours to make. It is not the cutting which takes that much time but drawing the characters. It is a constant "fight" to create as much detail as possible without making the puppets too fragile.
