MAD ABOUT THE BUOY!

(click on the image for a larger version)
A background design for nothing-in-particular. Complete with flocks of birds and red buoy. I think I was trying out water effects in photo-shop at the time. This was going to be a follow up to Zombie Kong with Zombie-Zilla rising out of the sea headed for the city but I really liked the buoy and the water's surface and got kind of distracted. So, technically speaking, this is a Zombie-Zilla picture only Zombie-Zilla's running a little late.

Love this stuff mate. Very strong and great colours. Could it be a precursor to Chillville I wonder??? News on that on Friday, I'm taking a phonecall with Ghislain.

Funny you should say that ... the water effect here was one I was going to propose as the water effect for the coast (spare no part of the buffalo). What I'm planning to propose for Chillville itself looks significantly different however to this mock metropolis (that's the Daily Planet globe on the horizon, or at least a nod to it) as it's quite architecturally eclectic. Can't wait to get started on that.

Funny, I had a look at the picture before reading what you'd written about Zombie-Zilla and came to the conclusion that something was missing. An asteroid or UFO or Monster from the deep. It looks like a calm just waiting to be broken.

And it turns out it is.

Very purty.

Thanks bentos, and welcome to Strange Planet. Glad you like:)

What limb would you like me to cut off to get you to draw Zombie-Zilla? :)
Chillville, sound suspiciously Biteneck Beatniks related...

It is Biteneck Beatniks related. More on that soon ;-)

As for cutting off limbs!?! Eeek!

Great sense of (heroic) perspective expressed in the image of the bridge. Love the reflections/water effects. For some reason, I'd like to see the buoy even a bit closer to the foreground, although it might become more of a focal point than the city.
