I reluctantly put forth that I agree with scratchfury (even before I saw his message) that this page somehow seems far less than the earlier version, but also that - with the exception of this page - the update pages have otherwise been rousing successes.

Et tu, Clovis15? ;)

Okay, okay. Updated artwork uploaded. The changes bring it closer in line with the previous version.

Thanks for the feedback, folks!

That does look much better, thanks for telling me about it or I probably would have completely missed it (at least until I bought the book). Having seen both versions now, I guess I would say the first update wasn't busy enough compared to the original page. The addition of the extra background elements really made a world of difference here.

This is still great, and most of your updates have been spot on, but I think that your old version of this page had more panache.

Fair enough, that's cool.

The Cthulhu on the previous version never looked right to me (in particular the head). Also, while the Old Ones were okay, I wanted to diversify them a little more.

This updated version is much more consciously Seussian (inspired mainly by the VROOMS pages in _On Beyond Zebra_).
