holy moly. haha...I remember this. I'm going to say that's 93'ish?
I was the limits of CTDS. :) Thanks for posting. I'll have to grab the scene
file and figure out what I had in mind back then.

I might try to update this as a pulp cover. I'll see if I can find my original
sketch and comp something together. Mike

I'm liking the old sci-fi magazine look-n-feel.

Found another picture of REX.

Nice, thanks for finding this.
I haven't seen that image in a very long time.

Yes, old sci-fi magazine covers are great. Usually had a Jane Russell like
female in lingerie draped over the alien. :)

My original concept had Rex encountering a slug creature wrapped around a
decorative column. Still looking for the elevation sketch I did to code POV.
Attached are early concepts. I will definitely redraw this for a pulp cover.
