Godzilla spys hiding Hedorah by aaronjohngregory Godzilla spys hiding Hedorah by aaronjohngregory
One point perspective assignment for my AAU perspective class. Inspired by a script someone gave me. What nature of beast is oozing forth from that building!!?

Most everything was done with gray art markers and white out onto a full size copy of my original inks printed out at home on two-ply bristol comic board. Then dumped in to photoshop to clean it up, add cast shadows and light effects and knock back some values for more atmospheric perspective effect.

I recently reposted this, since I enlarged one of the pigeons big time, moved one of Godzilla's eyes much further towards the center of his snout, and knocked back line art and lightened up excessively dark values in the background. All requests from my instructor. Think it worked well!

Kodo drums playing on the Ipod, Japan on my mind.

Ha! I wish. Can't do stuff like that to a licensed character, and I hope to draw Godzilla someday, like on the books and legal! Don't want to piss off TOHO.

Looks freakin' amazing. The thing coming from the building, I'm guessing, is Hedorah. You have his name in Japanese written on a billboard behind the one featuring Godzilla's. And then you have Mothra behind that written on the blimp.

Oh smack!! You got both my little easter eggs. Yup, Hedorah is written on the big black sign, and Mothra on the blimp. Nicely done. Know what the other stuff is saying?

I know the logo above Godzilla is the Toho logo, the makers of Godzilla and crew.

But other than that, nope, lol. Only reason I got those two names is because I've seen the Japanese posters for the movies a billion and one times.

Hah, awesome. There is a Kirin beer sign, which is easy, and I'm pretty sure the text behind his smoke says "dangerous" which I just thought was random and funny, though I did butcher it a bit to make it fit well in that space. The Shark sign says Shark followed by soup base. It's probably totally inaccurate as far as placement and grammar, but whatever!

Well, three anyway. Blimp has Mothra, first sign as Godzilla and the Toho logo, second sign has Hedorah. Don't know what's on the other signs.

I'm guessing thats Hedorah as well, its the only ooze monster from the Godzilla flicks that I know of...That or a new monster.

Nice job on Godzilla's face and buildings, very funny billboard in the background XD

   Hedorah the Smog Monster being my first guess.  I'm a fan of those old Toho films of the 1960s and 1970s.  Very well done.

   The thing that tipped me off was the... well, slimy aspect of what was breaking out of the building that the Big G was peeing around.  One of Hedorah's phases resembled a pool of oily, caustic sludge.  In Godzilla vs the Smog Monster, it was actually one of the toughest opponents for Godzilla that I ever saw.

Yeah, Hedorah is a big fav of mine, and the guy who wrote the little script I'm toying with. Glad you dug it!
