Are you a squid or a gorilla? by AMX-269 Are you a squid or a gorilla? by AMX-269
Finally got a Nintendo Switch this week, along with Splatoon 2, so I finally had an excuse to try out an idea I've had for a while: Gorillaz (Phase 1 designs) as Splatoon characters!

2D and Noodle are both Inklings; apparently, Inklings aren't able to retain a more human form until around 14, but since Noodle is a super soldier, I feel like she'd be a bit ahead of the curve. Murdoc is a Sea Urchin mainly because of the canon character Spyke; it took me a while to figure out how to make spikes out of his hair and still make it look like him. With Russel, I tried to be a little more creative; he's a Barreleye Fish, a deep-sea fish with a see-through head (so there's more emphasis on his eyes). Finally, there's Russel's buddy Del Tha Funkee Sea Angel; turns out there is such a thing as a Ghost Fish, but it's freshwater, so I decided to find something that would fit a little better.

Doing this drawing has also given me a strong desire to hear "Clint Eastwood" sung in Inkling. Hey, Katy Perry recorded some of her songs in Simlish, so it wouldn't be completely out of the question, right?
