GORILLAZ 30 DAY CHALLENGE - DAY 18

18) Least favourite Gorillaz album artwork?

I'll let Murdoc speak for me...

Murdoc: THIS rubbish! I mean, LOOK at it! Satan! I've got child-bearing hips for Christ's sake! And what happened to my manly physique? Someone was obviously at the bottom of a bottle of something dark and potent when they drew THIS! Mind you, I've made a few teensy little improvements of my own, eh?

All characters (C) Gorillaz partnership.

It wasn't a very flattering image, even for a man of Murdoc's success!

why did he change his body shape?

:iconniccalsnightstalker:
NiccalsNightstalker Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Because he wasn't happy with the way Jamie drew him, he said he thought it made him look too old!

To be honest, I think Jamie drew him on a bad day, because Murdoc's MUCH better looking than that picture!

Jamie drew me real fat when I was pregnant in 2004 with Murdoc Jr
He made me look like a freking cow *cries*

Men can never understand, and don't realise the things they do or say can be hurtful, but I'm sure you don't need to worry about that now, it's in the past.

:X That drawing of Murdoc always bothered me. Hate to say it, but actually a lot of the phase 3 art of him bothers me. His face shape was always different and his chin was always either drawn flat like in this picture, round or pointed. I much prefer Murdoc when he just had a round face in phase 1 and 2.

Yeah, I see I'm not alone - quite a few folks have commented on it. Poor Murdoc, he's got a lightbulb head and THAT'S JUST WRONG! Also, Russel's hand is just anatomically a DISASTER and Jamie's NOT like that. Phase 2 Murdoc is Murdoc at his finest for me, but I still like most of what I see in Phase 3, except for the static art, ugh.

I actually have the t-shirt with this on it and I do agree, it's different than what we're used to. Murdoc and 2D's shoulders should be broader plus they're the same height, Russel's hand it a bit too big and where's the rest of him?

Noodle and Cyborg are drawn perfectly.

I see Mudsie didn't touch Noodle. Guess he's thinking that she's perfect.

I'm glad you noticed that about Noodle, actually :D I think it's partly because she's never done much to irritate him and partly because she had a mask on, but he WAS tempted to draw a tiki face on the mask... ;)

HAHA!!
Oh my God, this is too perfect!
I love how Murdoc has "manned-up" his body, like to how it used be, like in Feel Good Inc. :XD:
...and has he given himself and enormous package?? LOL
That happy face doesn't look right on him, either!
Pretty funny what he did to 2D and Cyborg..
But RUSSEL, it's amusing what he did to him, but... I think he actually looks really cool with a mohawk and a bit of facial hair!
Your lines and colouring look different... did you use a different program or different brushes or is it just me?? It looks neater!
Anyway, I really like this, made me laugh and put me in a better mood (I'm now even happier after hearing I got fish and chips for dinner) :iconretardiloveitplz:

:lmao: Glad you like it, I was laughing, I'll tell you! Yes, Murdoc knows how to make himself look better while making the others look worse, LOL.

I just worked quickly, really, and the lines were smoother as a result. :) Colouring's the same as always, but it's a bigger file size so clarity is better perhaps? Thank you so much! :love:

Phase three music's great, video's great, CGI is great (I must be one of the few who like the CGI stuff including Do Ya Thing) but why did they make Murdoc look so odd this time around? This particular poster I consider the worst, I like nothing about it and I have my doubts it was even drawn by Jamie. Anatomy and face shapes are so OFF it's crazy, to say nothing of Russel's hand.
