Monkey Behemoth



It's made from millions of monkeys and creates a deafening squeal as it lumbers through the jungle seeking vengeance. Also some other stuff...

Are these designs part of the tales of Monkey Island? I'm afraid they are not.

Starchie Spudnoggen said...

Cuacomekiki --
They are not. But don't be afraid.

Matthew said...

But I am afraid. In fact I'm rather terrified!

I really dig that million monkey thing. its like a horrible dream.

Limey said...

Aw, I honestly thought this was concept art for Rise of the Pirate God.
It just seemed like this would be the type of thing that would happen.

Hehe cool
Reminds me of a certain giant monkey robot...

A giant monkey made from hundreds of monkeys chasing undead pirates?!?

That's the best thing I've seen in ages! Thanks so much for sharing Steve; that's awesome!

Is this from the shelved Monkey Island film by any chance?

Love the little cute fetish monkey.

Ugh, you make me sick with your talents and wit and keen intellect. Keep up the awesome work!

I can't express just how much I enjoy the sheer cleverness of this. I grew up playing Monkey Island games and when you post stuff like this, it warms the cockles of my heart.

Also, your skeletons have a lot of character and individuality!

My boyfriend is a huge fan and loves this pencil art. Would you be willing to sell it? He would be so so happy. :) Thanks for any information!

you could be one of my first fauvourist artist since I was a child. Every time I visit this blog its exciting for me as professional and exciting for my little inner child.
Amazing, sir, really love all your work.

I wonder, how long would something like the monkey-behemoth painting take you to paint, including the initial sketch etc? Seems like a lot of this paint is pretty opaque. Acrylics?

Starchie Spudnoggen said...

C--
I don't have these pencil drawings, they're from copies. I have thought of creating some new pirate drawings and paintings to see if anyone would be interested.

Vujovic--
These story paintings were done fairly quickly for me. About four hours each on average.

C said...

I would definitely be interested! Would you consider selling a print of the copy? :) Thanks for the reply!

Steven,

You come down from that tree right now! You hear me?

As your former editor, this is not a request.

there's a slime mold that lives part of its live as single celled discrete individuals and then at the end of it's live acts like a multicellular singular entity. It goes from being a colony to making 1 plant that gives off one seed.

reminds me of that

Babe Scanlon said...

I meant lives part of its "life"

and life again.

Often when I mean to type "write: I type "writhe" instead, telling?
