btw: great entry K_GiMiNi_M -- but now this has turned into a "bail out" contest

Re: October 2008 Contest Discussion

I found this to be a very difficult contest! I just plain could not come up with an executable idea for a submission!
There is still plenty of time left, so heres hoping we can give these two a run for their money!
I think that Lonk and K_GiMiNi_M happened to come up with great ideas.. Which I have thus far failed to do... Although, while surfing the web for something pertaining to Mighty Mouse (which the subject photo reminds me of) I came upon a great ad/poster made for Disney which fit the contest pretty good but seeing as how all I did was chop the head and I'm not inclined to do a complete composite to copy the idea, I am not entering it... but if someone else is so inclined....
here is the Ad/Poster with the chopped head

Re: October 2008 Contest Discussion

Heroes and villains come in a wide variety...don't forget your run of the mill monsters and aliens as well as super heroes and so on.

I hope to see a lot more entries. It doesn't hurt to enter and others may offer tips to help you improve. Give it a shot!

T Paul, those are great links.
And Craig I love the laser beams, he's got that - "if looks could kill" look.
