I hate it when I’ve got something in my head that I just can’t get to come out in art form. For example, I’ve been working on this new piece the last couple of days. Now, most of my digital art stuff doens’t take me more than a day or so. There are exceptions, of course, but this one has taken a bit longer than usual.

Originally, I had this idea in mind to do a deco kind of propaganda piece for a Danger Patrol recruitment poster. What came out was a sort of ’30s comic/adventure poster look. And it’s not that I don’t like it, I just don’t… well… know if I like it.

However, it was a great breakthrough piece, in that I got away from the mold I was in, and started puching different techniques that I hadn’t messed with before digitally. This led me to firmly realize that I should be working in Illustrator rather than Photoshop, but dammit! I just like Photoshop too much. I fear change.

And even though this one didn’t turn out as good as I’d hoped, is somewhat amateurish, and doesn’t have very good text placement, I’ve now gotten a vision for the next one. Let’s hope that I can get it to turn out more like I’d hoped.

So for now, I give you The Robot Gorillas.

Yeah, the text placement needs a little bit of work, but dude…!

There ain’t nothin’ wrong with Robot Freakin’ Gorillas!

They’re just plain wicked. 🙂

Particularly, the “Are Coming” pair seems really out of place. A good start on something, however.

In the finished product you may want to make the gorilla’s eyes a little more prominent and the body coloring makes him look corroded, but perhaps that is what you were going for.

I will be eager to see the finalized product.
