Thanks Crissyrose! There is nothing more fun than making up roller derby names!

This is cool. I love the story as well as the art. Amazing job!
Thanks tallulahdahling and whimzwhirled! I'm glad you liked it!
Love this fabric!
This is FANTASTIC! I only just came across it now. What beautiful movement and drama and imagination! Many thumbs up!

For those who asked, these dames are available for sale now. Thanks!
Thanks Jo! Yup, I got the skates and the old body isn't what it used to be, though I've avoided injury. My husband ( who use to play hockey) pulled out his rollerblades and he is utterly fantastic! It's like seeing a seal in water. Backwards, forwards, it makes no difference. I skate like a turd beside him.
I'd vote for not needing a sling.
Wow!!! this is properly amazing Cean!! I'm a bit late with the old comment here, so pretty much everything I was going to say has been said already....Awesome illustrations, fantastic movement, brilliant layout and repeat, just totally wicked and supercool!! Good luck with the skating too, I had a bit of a fling with rollerkating about a year ago, I used to love rollerdisco back in the 80's and to try to recapture my youth I bought some skates....oh dear it really wasn't as easy as I remembered and I didn't look as cool as i remember doing back in the day...I'm not sure if you can look cool lying on your back shouting ouch whilst a couple of 10yr olds come whizzing past skating BACKWARDS!! and laughing!! hope your attempts fair much better:)

Ha! Or a sling!
So now you need a nice little skating skirt from this design.
Thanks for all of your great comments, everybody! I had a grate time letting my inner SciFi kid out on this one. I also got jazzed up enough drawing it that I just bought a pair of roller skates off of Ebay. Traction, here I come!
It is like "9" meets metropolis meets marathon man (woman)! Very sci fi, very creative!
Love your cyber roller babes.
WOW!!! This is such a great drawing and an even greater design. Fritz Lang eat your heart out!!
Wonderful interpretation and sooo creative! Great design!
It takes the mind in fascinating directions...
Seriously impressive illustrations & killer repeat!!
Love your design, looks very sci-fi. The illustration flows together into an amazing repeat.
Wowsers! Go-go-Robo-Derby. I see that Metropolis influence.
Wow, such crazy amount of work. Good luck with the contest! Love this design ^^
Your robots, layout, and description are so amazing! Quit making things I have to mark as favorites, I am starting to look obsessed :p
I love the mod undulations in this repeat, and your characters are camera-ready for a sci-fi derby flick. Maybe you can write that one after you do the children's book!
great repeat, and just rad illustrations. awesome!
Unbelievable. Totally awesome. Issac Asimov. Foundation series. Woow.
Thanks Annelie, Kelly and Carina! I was definitely amped to draw this one up .I really want to go out and get a pair of skates and try my hand at some skate and smash action!
wow, Cean, amazing work, such a detailed style you have, love it! :)
Not to mention all the clever thought you put into your characters and story....really great!
Very cool take on the theme!
you're an amazing artist !! this looks like a whole movie in itself!
Me too, Samarra. I was hoping drawing them might tone up my abs, but since I was eating ice cream cake at the same time I think I botched that theory.
Who ever knew robot buns could looks so good. Wonderful illustration; full of great movement. And the ladies...they make me feel like I need to do some sit-ups.
Thank you Pondripple, Alex, Isabella, Patty, Rhonda, Pinksodapop, Sharon Donna and Virginia! It's so satisfying to draw robots ladies smashing into each other and flipping through the air that I feel this contest has already paid for itself, but then you come in with your awesome comments and it's even funner! Thanks so much!
Total craziness! I mean, it's just wild! Wild I tell you!
I just love the way your mind works Cean!
It's just nuts really isn't it. I can't help thinking this would be the most awesome bacheler pad wallpaper in the world ever. Your drawing skills are awesome ~ your description equally so. wow.
Cean, firstly your description grabbed my imagination, then I was completely bowled over by the brilliance of your design!

These fabulous, fleet-footed robo-femme fatales, fielded for this frenetic, free-rolling contest, find fullsome favour with their fans when they fling themselves around the track with fervour, form and fighting fitness and flash past with a flourish, thus flagging a new era of futuristic fantasmagoria!!!
Awesome... awesome... awesome! And your description is sheer genius as always!
I really love your sense of humour, Cean. This is a super, action packed design and the way you worked the repeat is spectacular!
You draw good! Beautiful work Cean x
This is fantastic! I was thinking about trying to squeeze in a last minute design, but it's going to be pretty tough to top this beauty ;)
