This I like. The contrast and play between black and white really pull me into the photo. Since it's a roast me, I'm going to find something to say.
Let's see.... Hm.
I guess, if I could do something with it, I'd ask why you chose to paint the upper body white and black. Since the background has that distinction, why not make the character some sort of off white or gray mix, sort of the way the pants and the tail (though black) contrast the background?
I'm just talkin' though. I don't know nothin' 'bout no art. Good work.
