Before I start, I just want to say that everyone had wonderful entries, and I'm extremely happy that people followed through on this idea. As corny as it sounds, it's a great way to build a sort of community among the people of the board, and so far it's been working wonderfully. Many people (myself included) were finally given the motivation to post work for the first time, and were able to do so without the nagging doubt that their piece won't pass muster. I hope the Sketch of the Day continues to be just as popular in the future, if not more so.

Now on to my votes... I didn't want to break any rules, so I kept voting limited to those sketches that were done on time.

DAY 1 - FREEFALL

1st. AgentJ - Brain
Definitely my favorite - I love the monochrome blue, it really helps to contribute to the worry on the guy's face - he definitely doesn't look happy that his brain is skipping town without him. The use of dark to really imply the deadly drop down your back is great, as well.

2. mjm - Falling guy #2
This is really cool - I love how stylized it is, it really could be part of some comic that I haven't read yet. I really like the use of vertical lines in the sky, and the implied flapping of arms.

3. Archeophant - Guy with gun
I really like the speed that this one implies. The character of the lines, background, and even the coloring all imply a lot of motion, and it reall helps push your eye back and forth across the picture.

Honorable mention goes to AJ_23's Frog.

DAY 2 - FROM BEYOND

1. AJ_23 - "From Beyond the Stars"
Great graphic approach to the concept. The warm color pallette screams 'Mars' (which I'm sure you already knew). Definitely is individual in both style and approach.

2. Archeophant - Orange Alien
Both scary and cute - I don't really know how. I think the crazy word bubble helps.

3. Kieronh - Glow(?) Fish
Great colors and I love the fish's expression. Good muted greens really help with the under water setting.

Honorable Mentions to vinylequinox and Rio Yeti.

DAY 3 - MAN EATER

1. Kieronh - Dog
A very traditional image with a rather creepy twist, and a style that is often used to handle both. You said you were worried about the amount of color you used - well I am of the opinion that it's just right. Really helps to accent the red, and also avoids muting the effect of the finger.

2. zzacman - Human Baked Potato
Possibly one of the most unsettling drawings I have ever seen. Nice work

3. Goro - Worm
I really like the scene, reminds me of Dune. Very few scenes have been submitted recently, so this one really stands out. Love the guy in the bottom with his torch, as well.

Honorable mention to Ilikesoup - TGI Friday's?

DAY 4 - MONKEY WITH A GUN

1. Goro - Assassin
I love this one, it really strikes a chord with me. It has a very traditional look, but that monkey in the tree seems kind of like a jealous lover or something, gunning for the ape that stole his love away.

2. Supervlieg - Age of Discovery
Very cute, very funny. Yet maintains importance by hinting at the potentially disasterous outcome...

3. zzacman - Morpheus
That is frighteningly accurate. Like the comic book feel and intensity on the monkey's face.

And that's it, great sketches all around.
