    @ rickiep00h; You flatter beyond belief. I’m glad you got as much a kick out of it as I did writing it along side the man-minded gorilla. “Vomit and beer out of my fur, first” was a brilliant line yourself, sir.
    @ SJordan; I’ve been experimenting with color during these R:R pieces. Usually, I like to go with the post 90s animated palette. Where nothing is ever vibrant but dark. I changed that up with this one because I don’t see that palette working with livestock of any kind.
    @ David Lee Ingersoll; The Frankenstein hodgepodge look really scores highly for me. Your lines are so loose and free. ‘makes me envious that I can’t be as free with the pen as you seem to be.
    @ awesomecake; Ha! The scientist that has experimented too much. I really dig the green jello surrounding the brain. Great touch.
    @ Chris G; I see some fun Mike Mignola elements coming out of your design. I can see him pounding on puny scientists with plenty of quips.
    @ zombieinzen; Straight out of Heavy Metal. Your style is always so definite.
    @ lordmitz; It’s all about that trucker hat for me.
    @ Ken Miller; Oh the cables! It spins and plugs in? Now that is a vile alien brain!
    @ Brian le Golem; For quick you hit on so many great touches. I’m always a fan of beheadings and Tesla coils though.

    @ Kieran: Never underestimate the weirdness that has build Fluide Glacial, or l'echo des Savanes, for that matter. I haven't read one in years, but I keep on being a fan of the 1970 version...so many crazy things to read, Neal Adams doing Super-Dupond teaming-up with his US-counterparts (spitte-man, Gorgeous Woman and so on), Wally Wood on Alice in Wonderland, Jim Starlin on drugs to fight a master-of-the-universe version of death...great days...

    Expectedly awesome contributions this time. Frequent Contributor, that image just rocks in all kinds of ways. David Lee Ingersoll, that's certainly the most thought provoking one so far. It's got horror movie written all over it.

    As for mine....Well, you can't tell me Uncle Warren didn't think SOMEBODY was going to do this, right?

    Gorilla

    No real disrespect intended. Really. It's just a joke, Ellis. You can call of the death squads now. Please. Mr. Ellis? Sir?

    Been a while. Some great pieces over the last few weeks.

    @ MDominic - Ha! Brilliant. Dangerous... but brilliant.
    @ Jackcrowder - Ready like the feel, colour and energy.
    @ Zombieinzen - Would like to see more with this guy. Could go somewhere great. Love the pose... and the poise.
    @ Lordmitz - Great stuff!
    @ Ken MIller - Scary shit. Love it.
    @ Frequentcontributor - Beautiful designs.

    Here's my crack at it. Am triple posting (apologies) as there was some good advice on the art thread about playing with the hue and saturation wheel and want to get a read on what people think. EDIT - there was consensus below on the best so I just put links to the other versions.

    Here's the final piece.

    The original colours



    And a bluey night time version.

    @Yoav...maybe it's just my failing, aging eyes, but I like the original colors. It just seems more alive, more dynamic. Not that the other two aren't nice, but the original colors leap off the screen at me more.

    @ rootfireember - Love the sewn toy monkey take. Left field. Looks like it could be a really creepy few pages. Keep... it... up! Want to see where it goes.
    @ Struthersneil - MAYHEM always mayhem!
    @ MDominic - thanks for the opinion. Still grinning at your Ellisorilla
    @ Chris G - was so close to basically writing that with the picture!

    As there was consensus I've edited it to save load and page space. Never seen so many gorilla pictures. Amazing the range of personality everyones getting from them.

    Oh man, the bar's getting raised pretty high here, folks! I'm brainstorming my entry tonight and hopefully will have something for Thursday.

    @Brian LeGolem: see above. Thanks for the encouragement!

    @rootfireember - Really nice!! I really like the creepiness of it, and would love to see where you'd go with it.

    @Ken Miller - AWESOME. :D

    Forgive me everyone else for not telling each of you how good you are, but Rootfireember, that is beautiful and disturbing somehow, excellent stuff.
