Dr. Raven Coloring Contest

I was thinking it would be sort of an amusing, odd thing to have you color the picture.  Then, I would look at the finished product, selecting from among their number as one would select an avocado.

But there is some urge in you people to color shit, some powerful compulsion, the remainder of your youth.  I received - in a single day - over 1300 entries, many of which were in the massive .bmp format I expressly forbade!  I chose not to be insulted. 

Some people actually printed the strip out and colored it with crayons, which is the traditional method.  Some people had cool interpretations of Dr. Raven’s small sidekick, The Leviathan.  Some people wrote things on the image that I enjoyed, and I hope to steal them at some future point once you have forgotten the source.  Others were just great.  Here are the three we liked the best.

Kevin O’Neill, that guy knows how to color.  As does Jamie Jones, of course. 

But here is the winning image, by Alice Duke.  You can find more of her work here, if you like.  I’ll be sending out her riches shortly.  It’s no Omega Collection, but really, what is.
