I like your version. I always felt Barlowe got the rear anatomy a bit wrong with the hind leg. The hips he drew looked too bovine even though there was only a single leg. This is a nice treatment although from memory the "mouthparts" were described more finger like.

Ha its true, the client wanted my own take on them but if I was to be really accurate, they would need the flexible finger lips.

And you did a great job of making them look really creepishly alien, it's great.

If you ever make a print available for this Puppeteer, I should very much like to purchase it. Brilliant rendering. 5 stars. Would follow this to Ringworld.

Oh god, that is freaky-looking but I like how close it is to the original!
