Art By Committee: Simian Results

Wednesday is the day for our group sketch game called "Art By Committee,” where you illustrate an actual excerpt from a science fiction manuscript.

This week’s quote was: “...selection, so that evolution had leaped. Somehow all that other people noticed about her particular subspecies was its supposed simian characteristic.”

Everyone has come up with amazingly clever results, and I encourage you to follow the links to each of the artists’ websites and blogs. Be sure to scroll down to the end of the post for next week’s challenge.

And finally the drawing in the original “Art By Committee” sketchbook.

Here’s the challenge for next Wednesday. "It may have been a castle, but it was unlike anything you'd see in history books. An alien hand had drawn the blueprints; I was willing to bet on that."

Have fun! Please scale your JPG to around 700 pixels across. Title it with your name, send it to: jgurneyart(at), subject line ABC, and let me know in your email if you want me to link to your blog or website. Please have your entries in by next Tuesday at noon.

Great ideas, everyone. I love the original ABC with the wacky artists taking part in a life drawing session -inspired by a true story?
I was running a bit too short on time this week and didn't manage to get one done, hopefully next time!
I also loved the post yesterday on the cicadas. It's been too long since I went out and drew insects from all angles. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, great! I liked how Rob Hummer incorporated the quote into the image.

Love the quote for this week.
