The Indoor Kids - Project 2 - Stage 1 - Pigzilla

Suddenly I seem to have a lot of creative projects online.I have volunteered to do quite a lot for the Dunesteef guys ( because they're great ) - the biggest of which is producing a audio story for them. That should be challenging and fun. I have also asked to do two more pieces of cover art - and I'll probably end up doing some cover art for my production too. 

But, in typical fashion, The Indoor Kids podcast is running another competition to do a video game themed piece of art suitable for a t-shirt, iPhone case or sticker - and I just can;t resist that ! 

So I'm going to throw together something as quickly as I can for that - and seeing as Angelo is staying with my folks for a couple of days, this is the perfect place to start. 

I did a bit of brainstorming / mind-mapping to begin ( in true teacher fashion ) and I had a few good ideas ( I was tempted to do something based on Frogger, Smash TV, Asteroids and Boulderdash ), but finally settled on doing something based on Angry Birds. 

They suggested doing something which wasn't EXACTLY things from the game - but based on ( so they couldn't get stung for copyright infringement ). 

The idea that hit me was to do a Godzilla battle, with a more pig like Godzilla and a Angry Bird looking Rodan. But THEN, while I was doing research into Rodan, I discovered the great Godzilla enemy Ghidorah, this triple headed dragon thing - and now I'm doing an Angry Bird version of that. 

First stage is to vector out my initial Pigzilla sketch :

So far I have this :

It's a start !
