SF&F Avatar Contest - "Upside Down"

Thanks, once again, to everyone who voted for my av in last weeks challenge!

I've had this idea saved up for a while and I can think of quite a few examples so hopefully it'll work out.

This weeks contest is for SF&F avatar that feature someone or something that is upside down. For example that could be someone upside down due to floating in zero-g, falling from a height or perhaps suspended from a ceiling...

I'll post the voting thread on Friday.

Have fun!!

Great theme! A few ideas come to mind right away. I'll see what I can whip up.

I'm trying to find a video clip to make an animated version, but this will do for now:

ETA: 70k doesn't allow much, but here goes:

I like A. I was coincidentally getting my similar S-W pose. It's funny the way they draw her here, she looks stronger than the Spidey you have above

Re: SF&F Avatar Contest - "Upside Down"

Yup! Last week wasn't much fun, but power, phone and internet came back on Wednesday afternoon-ish. We spend a few days in Austin with my family to escape the heat.

Everything is more or less back to normal now. But all my favorite places to take family and friends were destroyed.

Man... great topic, but here's where I wish "Airplane!" counted as sci-fi/fantasy.

Re: SF&F Avatar Contest - "Upside Down"

Would this be qualify? Trip isn't upside down all the time...



or I can use this:



I do prefer the first one, if it's OK.

Thanks. I'm waiting for a ruling...
Yours is great, too. I didn't even think of Spiderman... But, then, I have mild case of arachnophobia, so....
