    i have no idea where to go with this, I have an idea though. I plan on doing these even though I'm awful, because,because,because,because I need the practice.

    @ RandomEntity - If you have an idea, just do it and have fun doing it! Don't worry if you don't think you're good enough; they welcome artists of all levels, and these Whitechapel challenges are just for fun, exposure and practice anyway. I feel that mine still aren't up with these artists, but then a lot of them have far more training and experience. At least I'm definitely learning more with each entry and getting better. Maybe I'll be accepted for Bleedingcool soon.

    @evilgeorge - I'm imagining the fight he just walked away from. Must have been a mess.

    @kmcleod - I laughed. Thank you!

    Six-Gun Gorilla gone mad

    This doesn't count as a 'pen sketch' does it? I did it all digitally...honest!

    'Pen portrait' means a written description with no art, which is prohibited round 'ere for good reason (so nobody can claim a pro writer 'stole my idea'). It doesn't refer to which tools you use to draw with!

    Your sketch is brilliant - eye-guns FTW.

    Ah I see...thank you for the clarification and the kind words.

    @HOT_RIGHTEOUS_DEATH Son of a..! I'm not sure I was going to go with it, but I can't quite believe someone else was thinking "how about if I gave the gorilla guns for eyes?"

    @S.Madsen - It looks like someone is going to be very sorry, very soon.

    Don't just draw a cowboy gorilla unless you can add something new or novel to the setup....

    Well, the idea of a cowboy gorilla sounds so absurd that you can definitely find something novel in it.

    And I do like changing the challenges from weekly to fortnightly. It gives us more time to organise our entries and for Whitechapel to find new challenges for us. I wonder how they find these sometimes-obscure characters for us to do.

    Any chance we might have something in the line of British girls' comics? Or boys' comics? I missed the Misty cover challenge (which brought me to Whitechapel). I could have a lot of fun with Bessie Bunter, the Four Marys, Bella Barlow, or other old characters from those comics.

    O'Neill, Six-Gun Gorilla, Urban Assassin. (Updated it with the colour version. Link to original B&W.)

    O'Neill is the perfect assassin, invisible in the city--the sight of a massive gorilla with an antique six-gun is too strange to pass through our perceptual filters. He exists in the corners of our vision, unseeable, until the loneliness gets to him and he decides that he will choose a friend.

    Neil, that is... wow. WOW. I am in complete awe of that subtle fisheye perspective - that's a really tough thing to pull off, in my experience, and not make it look really weird and hokey. Well done.
