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/Ã¢â‚¬Â¦
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.

Bigger question where is it’s parents
Love the very animalistic and ravenous design of Godzilla in this image!
Go, go, Godzilla. S
I'd say this is my favorite Kaiju piece in quite some time.
You kiddin me? That's too small to be Godzilla.
Great picture though!
Great picture though!
His face looks somewhat inexpressive but still cool.
It's beautiful! it would see epic throwing of his atomic breath in White or Blue.
Does it mean that you put Godzilla in an already drawn picture or did you make this before?
I love the style, it looks like the old mythical paintings like St. George and the Dragon.
Godzilla in Skyrim lol
'' Misty Mountains Cold... No its the wrong One ! ''
i remembered the good old days when Godzilla was not only in the city but in a mountain forest area :'D
Godzilla: Monster Island how I missed you so. Home sweet home
Nice work. Well done.
epic illustration !
Definitely not his usual scene...but still very good
Beautiful reality composed of the shattered senses aligned, my friend......Simply breathtaking......
Godzilla's probably thinking "'Sigh'...not as satisfying as destroying buildings"
wow great work !! you need to draw him in a city!
This is so badass. Wonderful work on this image!
Sweet! Really digging this series you are doing!
Beautifully well done! Godzilla blends seamlessly in with the Herzog.

Simply beautiful work! Godzilla looks great, as does the gorgeous background
It looks so real! Epic!
