Critiques

Godzilla 2014: The King Returns by SeanSumagaysay

Pretty darn accurate, if I do say so myself! I like the subtly to the scales and body texture here, although it could stand some extra ...

Dino paint by PootDamnYou

It's always interesting to see a non-paleo-artist's take on a dinosaurian form, because there are all sorts of cool design possibilitie...

In the wake of G-Fest, which was a great time and I was thrilled to see so many Deviant-art-ers come out, I wanted to turn the spotlight onto two Kickstarters that were being promoted at the show.

Firstly, there's GODZILLA: HERITAGE - this one's been kicking around for a while, and there's only a little bit of time left in the campaign. BUT, if they can pull down a few thousand more, they can get this extremely cool-looking fanfilm made. The monster suits are being built by Rashaad Santiago (of SyFy's FACE OFF), and features both Godzilla and Anguirus. Go scope it out and let's try and make their goal, eh? I'll be producing a poster for the project later this year.
UPDATE - G Heritage has a second Kickstarter with a slightly more in-reach goal to make. Go donate now!

Next, there's a great documentary being produced by Kaijucast called HAIL TO THE KING: 60 YEARS OF DESTRUCTION. The idea is to produce a documentary focusing on the upcoming Godzilla exhibit in Japan, as well as including various interviews and testimonials from professionals who have worked on the Godzilla franchise to celebrate its 60th anniversary. I'll be providing sketches for incentives, as well as large-sized posters based on my "60 Years of Mayhem" art.
UPDATE - About 60% there! Keep it going!

I love Rulers of Earth, dude. Your art is awesome as hell. I'm hoping Angurius isn't dead from that Mechagodzilla attack though, poor guy never catches a break. Here's hoping they extend the series a little longer with any luck and that the finale to this arc is as badass as the last one.

I know you probably won't answer this, but I'm hoping for a real damn good Godzilla hero moment. I'm a sucker for Godzilla as the hero to be honest, I just prefer it. That probably puts me into a minority or whatever, don't care. I prefer Godzilla being more heroic and I'm crossing my fingers for a bad ass conclusion to this arc here. Godzilla rules.

Can you tease anything about the next issue, #14, or are you unable to say anything?

By the way, make a suggestion to your publishers for next year. Godzilla in Infestation 3, still waiting on that you know. Come on, you guys can think of something to infest the IDW universes again and Godzilla can be at the forefront of it. Anyway, can't wait for the next issue.

We're hoping to do some cool, "heroic" stuff with Godzilla soon :)
Thanks so much for your kind words! 14 is off to the printers and it'll be out soon!

Sadly, I wouldn't hold my breath for G in Infestation. I'd be surprised if there was even a part 3. Toho's not crazy about crossovers :(
