GOJIRAAA!!!
(paperless fun —Godzilla ™ & © Toho Co.,Ltd;Godzilla ™ & © TriStar Pictures)

Oh yeah —yet another Illustration Friday post.And the topic this time is Monster.
So,if monster is the game,why not go all the way with the King Of The Monsters,the most monstruos of them all:GODZILLA! (yeah,I know,sometimes I can be such a fanboy...)

Personally,I did like the American movie.Yeah,yeah,I know it's a bad movie,but that's how Godzilla movies are supposed to be —I mean,as far as I can remember,Godzilla has never won an Oscar ® nor the Palme d'Or at Cannes.
But of course,if I must choose anyway,the original kaiju material of Toho studios is still much better.Can't send an irradiated iguana to do the job of a radioactive dinosaur,you know.

This image surely was also imaginated by lots of many other Gojira fans all around the world.In fact,it was recreated in the last Japanese Godzilla movie,Godzilla:Final Wars.If you're curious,there's a clip of that battle available at YouTube —and yes,that scene actually features a CGI vs a man in a suit.Cool,inspiring stuff,isn't it?

That's a really good pic! Good job!

Ironic that in a movie most fans consider the worst Godzilla film ever made, our dreams came true for a brief scene. :)

Thanks!

About that positive moment in a bad film,guess it's like the reverse view of Sturgeon's law:if ninety percent of everything is crap,then there's still a ten percent of everything —even crap— that is greatness.

«how far wrong can you go with Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno ("The Professional"!) and the best voices from the Simpsons (Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer)?»
Makes you wonder what would have happened if the monster had any other name,ah?

Messing with a classic was a kind of obvious error--just calling it "Lizard!" might have doubled their profits!

Es cierto que la americana era mala, también es bien sabido, como tú dices, que así es como toda película de Godzilla debe ser... Es curioso, pero el caso es que si una película americana relativamente reciente es mala generalmente la criticamos y somos incapaces de respetarla, sin embargo si se trata de una película de culto que es pésima tendemos a adorarla precisamente por lo mala que es... qué complejos somos.

...y ya ni hablemos,para meter más complejidad al asunto,si mezclas opiniones puristas con villamelones.Al final puede resultar que ni el material original era tan respetable,después de todo.

«(crap-"paperless"... I was about to ask if the original art was for sale!)»
Dammit! I knew I should have made a copy in higher resolution for printing...

(Oh swell.That's a perfect excuse for making a new,more detailed and colored piece later,ah?)
