Another bit of messing about in an art challenge from the esteemed Mr. Ruth boards. An attempt to stay faithful in recreating a memorable passage of Kirby from my youth while still bringing a bit of my own sensibilities also. Here's hoping I didn't tarnish things too much. Apologies, Mr. Kirby.
EDIT: By request, here is the original Kirby brilliance so that my pieces may pale even more so.
