Keep Looking Forward!

MESSAGE FROM THE FUTURE:

In the year 3000, most members of Toon Club will be mutant/alien half-breeds as a result of great Plutonian Invasion. The entries are drawn on panda hides. (Surprisingly, the panda proved to be the MOST resilient mammal.) There is one box of Rose Art crayons that survived the meteor showers in 2035, so the Toon Clubbers share it equally. It appears the last colors left are cornflower, maize, burnt umber, and silver. Since all scanners have been outlawed, the drawings are posted by taping them to the backs of the giant cockroach overlords who rule with an iron fist. (Slower Toon Clubbers are eaten alive during this process, so there is a large turnover in membership.)

At first I thought the topic was a little confusing... now I see why. My brain was WAY off! About a third into what you wrote, my brain melted. Nice monster cleaveage there. That beast does incredible things with burnt umber.

I like this monster's face and the nice sense of weight in the body. :D

That one isn't ME by any chance is it? Nah, can't be. I'm pretty sure I will have been cockroach kibbles by then.

I'm so proud, my great great great grandchildren will be mutant/alien half breeds (sniffle).

You certainly gave your post a lot of thought. Quite an imagination you've got Adrian. I'm so jealous. Great work on the mutant/alien half breed. Very cute, and what an artist!

Oh great, panda hide always gives me hives. I'm doomed. I love the little wart/pimple on his tongue. I'm so glad we are survived but such intelligent looking creatures with excellent art skills. Nice job of course!

har har. funny story. As a kid I always wondered if umber itself was a color or if it had to be burned first before it became a pigment...also, I just tried sticking out my tongue while sticking out my teeth like this character and found that I really just slobber all over myself. I reckon that skill will be genetically refined in the next thousand years.

Why does he have to be left handed? Are they the dominant creatures in the future?
