This took me forever to get "right", and I'm still not completely satisfied with the lighting.

The idea popped into my head almost immediately when I saw the challenge subject - I just didn't have the card stock I needed for the artists pallet or the 'canvas'. My wife helped me out with the pallet template and the drawing of the cat, because I can't even manage a decent stick figure.

Greetings from the Critique Club

Well, you had me laughing! Both now and during the Challenge when I first met this image.

It's a delightful idea and you've executed it quite well. AND you got a comment from the original himself. Not a bad haul for one image.

Okay, down to business: I very much like the composition, and the theme, and the background. (but) On my monitor, at least, the figures are not exactly sharp. And in something like this, where there is no pressure, no movement, etc. sharpness is really helpful. (A tripod or a good brace for your camera is a help in such a situation. )

In any event, you have a keeper here, one you can certainly enjoy as many of your DPC team-mates have as well.

I am a self-confessed woody convert. Although I have never used one in a submission. Well done.

lol, i thought about doing this :)
my only nag is that I think the POV should be a little lower and maybe a tighter crop, but it's still funny :D

Heh! Pretty good interpretation. The "floating on the background" kinda thing keeps it simple, but loses depth.

I don't care what the little guy says, that's a damn fine painting of a monkey! :D Nicely done! The black background adds the appropriate Roflmao-esque style! :)
