The entire thread? Wow! I'm flattered. Thanks for the compliment!
Today, I'm afraid, I can't post anything overly astonishing. I was pretty lazy and didn't have as much time as I would have liked. Therefore, just something small and simple...

Your shadows are so good, when I try drawing something my shadows end up to hard and flat like a cartoon. Yours come really alive!
New favorite? Cool! Glad to hear :)
As for the shadows... Are you using gradients or "flat" shading aka solid color for your shading? Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with flat shading. Most of my early Inkscape works were done in such a style and even today I sometimes use that sort of shading. If you want your shadows to look softer, less hard-edged, there's no way around gradients. Some people will probably tell you to use blur as well. I'm not a fan of the blur filter when it comes to shading. I like to use blur to create a sense of depth in the image (i.e. blur stuff that's not supposed to be in focus), never to soften the shading. But this is just my personal preference, of course.
