Ya ever been to Show Biz Pizza? I went there once for a birthday party ( not mine ) in 1983 I think. I really liked the animatronic band for reasons I can only explain to myself.  Here are my characters umm... in animatronic form, putting on a show. What's really important, ( to me anyway ), is that they're playing music that sounds like a band I've raved about before, Tame Impala. I dunno why but... that's the music that fits this for some reason. So, open another window and click THIS link www.youtube.com/watch?v=iErjaK… to hear Tame Impala's song " Alter Ego ". OR, because all the songs from their first album are amazing and oddly fitting, click here to listen to their entire album entitled " Innerspeaker " here= www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS93SX…

Left to right = Ralph on key boards, Teedo on drums, Chafe on bass and Amber on guitar. Foof is giving the wink in the foreground... and Dudley is peeking in at the end there. :-)

This is cool and to me it looks like an alternate universe version of the rock afire explosion where Beach Bear is a lizard, Mitzi has a different hairstyle, Rolfe is younger and never had Eral and, the rest of the band never join.

Thanks. Yeah, sort of. I just used my characters in place of the real ones and sort of bent the rules with Rolfe. :D

I could just picture these guys as actual retro-fitted animatronics. I don't know how they'd actually function though...

(I was gonna make a really long post here on the retro-fitting process and who would become who, but I don't really think you'd want to hear me fangirl about Showbiz Pizza tronics for that long.)

I saw 'em once but they kinda stuck with me. There really was a scare-factor with them though... but I still liked them. :-)

What animals are they exactly? I'm a bit confused.
Reply
:iconphraggle:
Phraggle Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2015   General Artist
They're my own characters spoofing the Show Biz animatronic band. Ummm... a few of them are dog-like and one is a rabbit-ish thing... and then there's the green guy. :-)

:iconstephenmikerodriguez:
StephenMikeRodriguez Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2015  Student Interface Designer
So what you mean is that their species are indeterminate, but are in fact inspired by real life animals, correct?
Reply
:iconphraggle:
Phraggle Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2015   General Artist
Well, to me, they're from another planet so, compared to humans, they're some sort of alien species. When I created them, I did set out to have the dog ones appear dog-like & the rabbit guy a rabbit. The green dude started off as a shark guy and then turned into some sort of lizard-ish thing. I wasn't really looking at animals when I first drew them, so they're sort of generic as far their animal counterparts are concerned. Some people think the dogs are rats. Does that help? :-)

Oh yeah indeed. That's the song that got me into them. I love the bridge. And it's a song that sounds really good in the wee hours of the morning, while I'm drawing in the dark by the light of my desk lamp. Actually, I've been listening to " Lonerism " all week. ( " Innerspeaker " needed a break (( but I can never get tired of them )).

Have you heard the new Mark Ronson song, " Daffodils ", featuring Kevin Parker of Tame Impala fame?
