Kaiju Contest Sketches
So here's my first sketchy ideas on my Kaiju entry. Just playing with the concept of a lobster/crayfish monster. I saw a shrimp at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and I guess it subconsciously jumped on the page. A lot of the newer kaiju seem to be more outrageous and I prefer the simper "man in suit" concept. It seems truer to the genre. After all it's going to be wrestling with Godzilla after all right?? On a side note, I've seen Krayonzillas massive vinyl kaiju collection and it's cool how they sculpt the folds and seams into the figure itself! Awesome detail!!
