Full view is duty!


Kaiju is a Japanese word that literally translates to "strange creature."

What a coincidence that the new Godzilla is coming to cinemas right now;)

More info on my blog: fantasiox.blogspot.de/2014/05/…

Explanation here: please read carefully!!

I did only paint the Kaiju in Photoshop from scratch, not the whole Landscape!

The landscape is a painting from Herrmann Herzog  - check out his amazing works: www.google.de/search?q=hermann…
The piece is in Public Domain, according to: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil…
What does that mean? fairuse.stanford.edu/overview/…

Actually the intention behind this is to learn from the old masters, this way I spend around 10-20 hours in a painting which is a valuable lesson in learning structures, lighting and composition. The version of Godzilla is based on what I have found on references, part is from collectible kits of the original version from 1954, the rest is painted as I saw fit.

Here is a video showing the process/steps of the painting:

The result is a declaration of love to the Hudson River School and a tribute to popculture as well.
This is part of the series called‚ "The ancient Kaiju project"

Suggestion for other Kaiju‚´s are welcome as well as also constructive comments!!

I like popculture and I love traditional art, so this project came very naturally to me and since the paintings are‚ public domain‚ no one was harmed, not even the original paintings!

There is no intention to sell these images, I did them for learning purposes and use them in my classes as well, however, if you want it as a wallpaper, feel free to hit the download-button to get the 1900x1200 px version.


cheers,

Does it mean that you put Godzilla in an already drawn picture or did you make this before?
