PERFECT PEACE: Godzilla Vs. Gigan 40th Anniversary by DaiKamonohashi PERFECT PEACE: Godzilla Vs. Gigan 40th Anniversary by DaiKamonohashi
Here's a poster I did up for the fortieth anniversary of the greatest work of fiction ever wrought by the hands of mankind, Toho's 1972 film Godzilla Vs. Gigan.

The fact that this is watercolor should really be a testament to how much time and effort went into painting this. Lighting is great, Atmosphere is great, whole darn thing is great.

To be completely honest, I kind of rushed the watercolors to make the GFest deadline.  I'm not proud.  It makes me feel a lot better to hear that people like it as much as they do though. XD

Sure. I think the glow on Gigan's leg may be  *little* too red, but it's fantastic overall.

This movie is the most nostalgic for me it's good to see it not made fun of and drawn out so well, I love this picture, because this was the first movie I ever saw.

This is done so well. I have no way of explaining how masterfully you captured the feeling of old movies, and good advertisement. Nice job, mate!

....*sobs* This is just beautiful! :) I mean you captured really everything in the movie about the villains. Ghidorah looks just breathtaking in it's fire birth form. A great idea of doing, so that the monster does not overshadow Gigan in this composition. You added everything from children's land, which just adds so much fun detail to this. And of course Gigan's Space Diamond, which I have always wanted to put in a piece, but cut it at the last second cause it seemed to stick out too much. This though it just flows into the background. It accentuates, rather than objective's it's presence in the piece itself. Awesome work!

Awesome!! This poster is really really cool! It looks really authentic and classic! I love how you drew Gigan! I ESPECIALLY love the pose you drew him in. I really love how you gave him a boxer-like pose. It really looks great on him and gives him a true feeling of a brawler. His pose reminds me of that famous Muhammed Ali picture actually. This is definitely one of the best poses ive seen him in. He looks really cool and serious. Really awesome job dude! :)

I liked that movie. It was quite confusing though lol. Then again i watched it years ago. I pretty sure if i were to see it today it would make a tad bit more sense (although it probably would be pretty damn confusing lol)

Question. Is that Ghidorah in the background? Also where is Godzilla?
Reply
:icondaikamonohashi:
DaiKamonohashi Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Yes, that is Ghidrah and I chose to only depict the villains on this poster, hence the lack of Godzilla, Anguirus, and the human heroes of the film.

Really? I swore Megalon was in that movie. I dont remember seeing Ghidorah. I guess the reason why i thought Megalon was in that one was because the aliens were also insects. Anywho fantastic job!

What? No, Gigan showed up in Megalon's movie, not the other way around.
