    It was very hard to choose.

    Ha, ha, I was too late.

    Never mind, when I've finished the colouring I may post it just for fun. (Nowhere near the quality of these here anyway.)

    The ones closest to my picture of Oy here were Darkthoughts and Boehmke. I love the effort and texture that went into Boehmke's but Darkthoughts's is just a bit closer to how I imagine Oy from the description. Good work though everyone.

    well.... mine definitely had the biggest B.S. story behind it... but as far as art quality and most true to king's OY descript., i had to go with boehmke's version - though darkthoughts was a close second.
    gsvec's made me laugh the most.

    i so want a bumbler like boehmke's now... where do i get one!!!!

    ps. now i know what a bumbler is... but what the hell is a boehmke?

    This is going to be a tight, tight vote.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    My problem is that if you COMBINE Darkthoughts and boehmke's versions together, you get the Oy I always imagined! Man, this is gonna be a very tough decision . . .

    I thought it would be hard to choose but my heart decided quite quickly.
    Lisa, your Oy is the Oy I have in my head. Thank you.

    Roland would have understood.

    I voted Lisa's.

    The Lion's is immensely touching, but I don't see him as a samurai Oy was.

    Lady Linda's is, as it is always the case with her pictures, evoking the whole atmosphere, but himself looks rather clumsy.

    boehmke's is fantastic, just a friend Jake needed, but not a merciless bug-killer who would save Jake's life

    gsvec's has, in my opinion, the right tail, but the rest seems to me much too canine

    TLC's is a cute little tiger, I love him too, but always pictured Oy a little different

    and Lisa's is perfect!

    I think this was the toughest of these contests to choose so far.

    Well done, everyone. You're all extremely talented. I sketched a stick-figure once.

    I voted for Darkthoughts - that's Oy as I always imagined.
