the monkey was with the project from day one when i thought about making graffiti come to liv i thought about him climbing buildings and roaring as a visualisation of my imagination. it is wild and powerfull like a gorilla. so he’s always been there with me first thing i did was to study the gorillas as i hadnt drawn them before.
I had a whole mood board full of pictures I found but the Mac computer corrupted my flash drive. So I lost loads and loads of stuff so this picutre is all you get.so i drew and studied these pictures then went into photoshop and drew a monkey all his limbs on different layers
this is the monkey i drew.
i gave him a bit of a different look i wanted him to be a piece of my imagination and not a realistic monkey i took some inspiration from scot pilgrim vs the world movie when he fights the twins.
these are the scot pilgrim screen caps where the monkey is fighting two dragons i really like the effect and maybe thats why it stuck in my head since i was only reminded of the movie after i came up with the idea so it was subliminal.
this is my final monkey
