My 3rd entry for the 9 Creature Contest:
(Style: Steampunk) (See 1st Contest Entry Here: Brain Storm)(See 2nd Contest Entry Here: Barbed Widow of Death)(See 4th Contest Entry Here: THE SOUL STEALER)The "Steampunk Monkey" is a flying, fiery engine of electrical and slashing "Death from Above."
Constructed from old toys and iron tools, its "shocking cymbals" and blowtorch tail spell certain doom for our tiny heroes. "Hey, burlap is highly flammable, don'tcha know?!"
Tools & inspirations:
Photo-manipulation using PS CS4 and over a dozen images.
Found objects: Jolly Chimp cymbal-clashing monkey toy, flexible lamp neck, iron screw bolt, ratchets, blowtorch nozzle, toy bat wings, veggie slicers, toy train smokestack, and hot wheel.
