Day 25: An idiom literalized.
I actually googled idioms. It's one of those things that you know until someone asks you and then you can't think of a single one. And "keep and eye out" was the first one I came across and I just couldn't get past the idea.
Day 26: An animal that doesn't exist.
It's always tentacles. They fascinate me and creep me out at the same time. I like leaving the exact details of this monster to our imagination Like where the claws and the tentacles and eyes come together is anybody's guess. I mean why are his eyes so low?
Day 27: An old person (doing kung-fu)
So I drew the old guy on top. But then I had the idea of kung-fu with a walker. So I used the model of a gymnast on a pommel horse and drew this guy kickin' ass.
Day 28: An alien species that looks bent on earths destruction, but is actually quite peaceful.
This is basically a rip off of Kang and Kodos. I wanted my guy to also be green, tentacled and drooling as well. I don't know where he got such humongous flowers.
Day 29: A monument of the world coming to life and wreaking havoc on the nearest major capital city.
Another two-fer. I had some time on my hands and after coming up with one idea I immediately had the other. At first I thought of Mt. Rushmore attacking a city. I even wanted it picking up people and eating them Rampage style but I think the heads would be too big to notice people if they were done to scale. (This is just a guess I'm not really sure how bit Mt. Rushmore is. I guess if I used North by Northwest as my source people are big enough.
Been awhile since I've seen it and I wasn't sure how committed they were to accuracy of scale.
I mean it's a mountain isn't it? It's in it's name? Then I found this.
So I guess I was right. The next dilemma with Mt. Rushmore is which capital city should it attack? And what constitutes "major." I ended up making the executive decision of attacking his home state capital of Pierre.
Now Sydney opera house was pretty obvious as far as the city was concerned and I like the idea of shells on his back. He reminded me of a old "dinosaur" toy I had as a kid. So I went googling to find a picture of it to use as a model and sure enough I'm not the only one who remembers these.
Day 30: A visual representation of your imagination.
I felt like leaving this one in black and white. And I wanted to make my head expressionless and black like a Greek statue. I also enjoy the juxtaposition of a small King Kong on a giant woman. Whenever I go back and look at this picture I think to myself "yeah it's something like that."
