The Jungle Hunt

Deep in the Congo, two daring archaeologists search for the lost sacred idol of the Mbazu tribe. After many months of searching and surviving through perils, they finally discover the idol. The archaeologists are in for a treat, for once they are about to touch the statue they are greeted with a friend.

This concept started with a background illustration of a jungle. I sketched a couple of ideas over the background and landed on wanting to have two archaeologists discovering a lost idol. Originally there wasn’t anything behind them, but I had the idea in mind of a large gorilla. Later, I added a dinosaur poking it’s head out of the jungle, I think it lets the archaeologists stand out better and stands as a fun reveal.
