 I did this piece this morning for a person on the GMC who asked for a 'sinister ape.  Was good practice for me I think. And I've never had a reason to draw an ape before. A friend just told me it looks a bit like the apes in the music video for 'Clint Eastwood' by Gorillaz. Figured I'd post it here since I ain't had much to contribute to this forum lately. It's pretty much finished and while there are a couple of slight niggles I find, I'm done with it.

 I love this. colours are nice and the facial expression is gold. reminds me of pre-Gorillaz evolution.

It does remind me of the Gorillas in the Clint Eastwood music video. It's pretty awesome.

I have no idea.   Maybe their offices got torched...

Hmm, I hadn't noticed the high avatar usage for a long time til you pointed it out.  Seems to be 24 at time of typing this.

user
rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/1/2007 03:07
So this is the avatar everyone and their little sister has been using.
It's cool.

What happened to the mobile company that "borrowed" it?

user
skatebord_J (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/22/2007 14:07

user
arrioch (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/4/2007 19:17
Really awesome work, and i love the fact that there is no complex shading, so this way it looks very cartoonish..

user
pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/4/2007 13:08
superb ... great char...

user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 4/25/2007 09:14
Thanks for notifying me of that.  It is more certainly an edit as I can clearly see the exact same bits and pieces still left intact in places.

user
ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/22/2007 18:11
This is awesome. Looks like someone decided to do an edit of this thing on Deviant Art... or maybe they just copied the idea, I can't tell.... http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/52871610/ Someone else seems to have noticed already, because a link to this page is in the comments.
