Thanks Val!

A challenge is a real challenge when you have to use your imagination!

My favorite quote on imagination came from our son.
He was about 3 or 4 and out playing with one of the neighborhood kids.
"What can we play" asked Billy
Fred (our son) said "lets use our imagination"
"What's imagination?" asked Billy.

Fred thought about it for a couple of seconds and said
"It's when you take your brain out and play with it"

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Great job Brian .... looks pretty scary and reminds me of "Dracula" a movie I saw as a young girl.  It scared the heebie jeebies out of me and I am such a scaredy cat as it is. :2funny:

An original character.  In fact, currently working on a short graphic novel involving him.

Been having bit of a dry spell with my art lately.  Looking to explore new mediums.  And I figured these monthly challenges would be a cool way for me to do too.
