Holy cr*p on a cracker. Okay where to start...
First of all, I love all this Kaiju universe, and I love the essence of what a Kaiju is. I'm currently working on some giant monsters sketches, and browsing DeviantART to find some inspiration just brought me here.
This, is a masterpiece. I mean, I can't find anything to say. When I saw this, I was literally stuck on my chair with an open mouth. The lights, the atmosphere, the colors, the Kaiju, everything is just perfect. I love how the city looks so small and how the creature looks so powerful.
Congratulations. Both inspiring and outstanding.
So I'm trying to be super critical and really try and look at things in a technical manner. The whole piece is super badass so I'll start that right off the bat! I do notice the horn on the wing closest to us seems to have a tangent with shoulder plate crease that runs into the neck. This makes that huge appendage jutting out flatten up against his arm and body. I want to feel the power in this side as I do on the other side. Also when I squint my eyes all the horns and mouth glow are all the same. Maybe too 'matchy-matchy' with the colors? Since its so very monochromatic, perhaps an orange mouth glow or yellow to match his eyes? (I haven't seen Pacific Rim, so apologies if this bad boy is in the movie and this is a replica painting). The glow from the horns on his shoulders and mouth falls to a solid aqua making the colors look 'hot' on my monitor. The forward horns are cool because they have enough detail in the glow not to feel washed out. Maybe I'm just expecting to see that kind of detail in those areas too.
His right arm and that wing type appendage feel the same as their directional flow mirroring into this kind of twin cylinders effect. Overall the ambient lighting doesn't leave a lot of dark shadows. Especially with those bright spot lights. His face is pretty well evenly lit and I think basing the overall lighting on the spots and internal glows might make more of a dramatic impact. Again, awesome work. Hopefully this helps you. (Also don't pay much mind to my star ratings, I'm still trying to figure out what they mean).
Alright, i'll try to write up to a hundred words so here i go,
Colors: What I see about the colors is that if there are about one hundred colors in that picture, that is very impressive. Both the monster and the ocean are bendable.
Lines: With so much colors i don't think i see any. (laugh) But there is. The best about it is the light blue lines on the monster, making it look very alien-like, of course it is.
Monster: It is very alien-looking, great color, Although the best about this remarkable creature is the size, looks like a size ten.
Final comment is " Great Job on this Marvelous art."
This has to be one of the best monster pictures that I have ever came across. The detail is amazing. The way that the hues of blue and black and a little bit of brown is combined is just simply amazing. The artist has an amazing imagination with this picture. And the city lights in the background really add to the picture even more. The monster is scary, yes, but yet you can not really stop staring and studying the creature. The way that the monster is position has even a greater effect in the picture. This is simply amazing.
Amazing! you did everything so perfectly! The concept is epic. The detail is extraordinary the shading is really good. The only thing i see that would need any fixing at all is that the horn on its head looks like its a little off. it seems i should be a little more to the right of the monsters head. it may just be me... The water is so realistic and it gives it lots of movement. This has got to be one of the best art works i have seen in a while now. This looks like it should be in a movie! Good luck to future art i cant wait to see more from you!
Hey everyone, do any of you remember the kaiju drawing "It will gonna sink"? If you want to see it, click here: https://www.reddit.com/r/GODZILLA/comments/20arme/it_will_gonna_sink_by_rickyryan_this_pacific_rim/ The kaiju in the picture appears far larger than any of the kaiju in Pacific Rim or Pacific Rim: Uprising. I would classify that kaiju as a category 10. What do you guys think?
