I've been waiting a loooooong time to be able to post this. Drawn by the impeccable Andy MacDonald, colored by me. The version that printed also had a cage in front of the big guy, but I prefer it without, so that's what I posted.
This image epitomizes the internal focus and narrative drive of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. With the addition of a few flecks of green in the irises, it's the film's iconic and archetypal poster. A subtle star field in the dark periphery opens the mind of the viewer to an adventure in prehistory like a key to religious mystery. It's an intriguing (origin-prequel) film that dovetails extremely-neatly with this spectacular painting.
