I've had this laying around unfinished for a few months. It's done now. It was an album-cover concept that didn't really go anywhere. The guy of whom I designed it for just wanted me to come up with something as he didn't have any ideas of his own at the time. There's a minor theme of monkey-related things throughout the album and this is supposed to be a play on the " speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil " ... slogan. He went with a band photo for the cover & I'm glad cuz it's a good album and this would've just been silly. The last time I did a cover for him I employed the comedic use or dog urine. Live and/or learn.
Well, I don't know him from Adam, but receiving a piece of artwork like this and turning it down just shows poor taste and bad form.
Oh, it wasn't like that at all. It's mostly just a sketch that I finished up on my own.
Okay, good, that's just the story I saw in my mind with only knowing the surface details!
Yeah, it was all cool. He wanted me to come up with an idea since he didn't have one. So, I cobbled together the monkey thing mostly to help him generate ideas. I'm not being humble or anything when I say that I'm glad he didn't use it. It really felt nothing like the album.
Hey nice concept art. DA is going to the monkeys for 2014!
Gives a whole new meaning to that "speak, see, hear no evil" thing...
Well... the harmonica guy does anyway. When I was doing research for this, I found a lot of similar ideas. Skull monkeys aren't all that original I guess.
OH MY GAWD!!! This is probably the coolest picture I've seen all day!!!
I remember the Skull Monkeys, they were from that Claymation game!
..... even though I don't play video games.... I think I know what you're talking about. I forgot about those things.
