Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Great. You know, correct me if I'm wrong, as many type of Kaiju have already been done, many insects, many animals, has a rhino derivative ever been done. Yours has a cool lumbering quality that makes me think of that. I guess anything with a single horn could be called "derivative" of a rhino.
I've always liked your technique for drawing creatures with shells, armor or some kind of carapace. That "interlocking pieces" look communicates a great tactile sensation.
This is a great drawing Rick, the line quality you have perfected over the years is really tight on this one. Love the cartoonish nature of the face and the thin tendrils around it - those are a great balance to the weight of the body.
I have to say that this is the fattest monster I've ever drawn... this guy is the original "thunder thighs"!
AWESOME! Love the pucker and pinch on the knees, a convincing (an outstanding, subtle, incredibly correct) Kaiju-style rubber suit effect. The cartooniness and the Kaiju co-exist in a wonderfully believable space. The weight and movement are perfect for that slo-mo headlong charge we've all thrilled to in countless monster movies; I can just hear the after-effects footfalls thundering!As Skribbl says, "GREE-GONK!"
Dammit, I love that knee, that foreshortened one where you really nailed the feeling of those rubber suits, (in fact, I'd say the folds betray one of the lighter, foamier costume fabrics--that sort of neoprene-y type). That knee is a revelation. I could go on and on....I just had to post again.(And I love Tom's word "carapace"; only on the TAG Blog!)
