    Cheers guys!

    @Warped Savant - It might be a little undiplomatic, but it hadn't occurred to me until last Friday when I was at a wedding where the father of the bride was called Mario.

    @dnewling - It's all in the layer settings that one, the photoshop side of it anyway. Mainly colour dodge I think. There's a long indecision hell of tweaking layer nature and opacities by percents, and then umming and ahhing for far too long. If you want I'll chuck you a reduced res version of the .psd so you can laugh at how pointlessly overcomplicated I make it.

    @Tim Hamilton - That's just disturbing. Really disturbing.

    @Simon Fraser - Another "Why hadn't I thought of that?" Nice!

    @SimonFraser I love yours too! Just a pencil sketch, and it's so powerful. I'm very impressed with the expressionism and use of lines.

    I wonder what Daddy Si will have in store for us with the next challenge? There are only three days left on this one.

    This has been my favorite to date.

    Yes, the gorilla's been fun all right. Daddy Si might have us back to remodelling serious spandex soon - or maybe something offbeat again. You never know what those comic books came up with in the past, and what we will be called upon to remake. Until then, let's have as much fun as we can with the gorilla in the time remaining.

    Nice to see somebody besides me going for the cowboy gorilla. Most people seem to go for the gun totin' gorilla.

    Yeah, it was late night and I got more inspired by Eastwood and there ya go. Great threads to exercise the brain muscles.

    Looks like the entries are winding down, and it's nearly time for the challenge to end anyway. Have you made your choices for BleedingCool, Daddy SI?

    I scribbled down a picture with what I had on hand and took a photo with my phone and here it is for you lovely folks.

    6 Gun Gorilla

    Moving house this weekend, so won't get around to posting a new thread, or picking the Bleedingcool Crop, until Mondayish.

    Keep 'em coming until then. There's been a bunch of brilliant-but-too-late entries recently.

    Oh... oh, COOL. I mean, let me rephrase that, FUCKIN' COOL!

    Reverse Planet of the Apes, kinda?

    @Axel I have no words to describe how immensely cool that is. Just wow.

    I lurk more than work, but this topic stuck with me and I had to put it on screen. I am constantly lost in wonder at the skills presented on this forum. My art style is somewhat foreign to this venue, but I like to play too, even if I get picked last. Throw me the ball, fellas! C'mon, throw me the ball!

    Busy week, but I've been keeping track of the thread, and needed to do this on a Saturday night. Not the mind-expanding genre-redefinition of some of the others, but eh, I wanted to play...
    Plus, banking on past glories is always cool, right?

    Fun selection this fortnight, but special high fives to Mecurialblonde, Neil Struthers, Dronecraft, DBed and Axel Medellin.

    Erk! Only realised yesterday I still had something to do for this. My first one here, and it was a bunch of fun.

    I went down the Die Hard with a Gorilla road.

    @ Paul Sizer: now why didn't Hanna-Barbera think of that?
    @ChrisOToole: welcome aboard and you've made a brilliant start here! I'm still fairly new myself and it's nice to share with another newcomer.

    In before the lock!

    Mrs T bought me Painter 12 for my birthday and I had to draw something while experimenting- right? It's a robo-cyborg-gorilla-thing. It probably has at least six guns. Probably.
