    Thanks Ben, Paul. I was going for an Art Deco Charlie's Angels kind of vibe. There's an updated version over in the Artists Thread.

    DBed your fantastic image reminds me of the video to the first Gorillaz single Clint Eastwood.

    My take on the little blue boys as they fight crime with buckets on their heads (cute) and loaded revolvers.

    So - I'm clearly new here and so far I've managed to make a total tit of myself. I am a geek and an artist, but somehow I am completely unable to post my image and now feel like a total fool. It's from Dropbox and the actual link is below. Sorry if I've broken any house rules, just got all excited about getting my art out and upset the tea trolly in the process. If anyone can help me un-idiot myself I would be grateful. Image link follows:

    EDIT - I sussed it - public folder. Duh

    Btw love Paul Sizer's work - what a fine collection of upstanding young men - and Kosmograd's was almost my favourite, but I just love the one by DBed, marvellously inventive reappropriation of the title.

    Mister Tibbs: Welcome aboard! Don't worry about any problems with uploads. It can happen, especially when you haven't quite worked it out. It's happened to me. Ah, so you can upload here from the public folder in Dropbox? I didn't know that. Mine are done from Photobucket.

    Thanks, dnewling. Good to be here and hoping to share my work with the like-minded, have been out in the wilderness for too long and may have become feral. Totally love the stuff I've seen so far and hope to see more.

    Only just had my wife point out that one of the blue boys is missing from my picture, so I would like to explain that he is out of shot assembling his shop-bought nunchuks, ready to deal a crippling blow to restricted parking violators.

    Mister Tibbs: looks a bit of a squeeze getting the third boy in anyway.
  3.  (11122.48)
    I never liked the third one if I'm honest - he just has that look about him, you know, kind of bucket-on-the-head look.

    Just in time for the new smurfs movie!

    Very cool, Herr Hussein. So does that make Papa Smurf the ineffective commissioner?
  6.  (11122.52)
    That is scary!

    @Herr Hussein - That's great

    @ Kosmograd - Great illustation. After I finished the pic and posted it I saw a very Gorillaz vibe to it... and I am alright with that

    Just want to say that you folks are making me all kinds of happy with your versions of these kids.

    @Herr Hussein - Great illustration. I don't think I saw the skater smurffs on the DVD extras of "the Warriors"

    Loving the entries this month!!

    Little boy blue - tracking

    my faves so far
    @PaulSizer - really smart concept and stunning art as ever
    @Dbed - genius all round
    @Kosmograd - that should be in a gallery, beautiful!
    HerrHussein - awesome art, the smurf hats are really menacing. (never thought i'd say that)

    Also, you glorious bastards are making it difficult for me to pick JUST 3-4 for the Bleeding Cool highlight. I wish I could just go in to people's homes, strap them to an old wheelchair, tape their eyes open and show this thread on a projector. Maybe some shouting of "DO YOU SEE?".

    But damn folks, keep at it.

    Ah, tell Rich you want to show MORE than 3-4 of these. He will be powerless to resist your request.
