Kaiju revisited 9 by felipe-elias Kaiju revisited 9 by felipe-elias
During my childhood I was a big fan of the daikaiju live-action movies, and this is why I decided to prepare a small tribute with my fanart series, inspired by those classic monsters, icons of pop culture for many generations. I would like to feature the classic kaiju from my point of view, with a very particular aesthetic touch.
The list of kaiju that have featured over the decades is huge, and I will not include all of them. So I chose some of my favourites of all time, and some that have great potential for new designs.
...
Another of my favourites: SpaceGodzilla.

Previous: Godzilla [link] , Anguirus [link] , Baragon [link] , Rodan [link] , Gorosaurus [link] , Manda [link] , Mothra [link] and Biollante [link]
Next: Gyaos

These redesigns that you are doing are drawn wonderfully. They totally remind me the old Journey to the Center of the Earth, and movies like it, when they used real lizards with spikes and scales attached to them for the monster sequences. Honestly, I prefer my kaiju to be Man-in-suit, and as far away from a dinosaur likeness as possible. But your work is great.

Only trouble with the dinosaur stance is it downplays the spikes which were Spacegodzilla's trademark, but it's unavoidable. I've tried to draw him like that and had the same problem.

Valeu cara... pretendo explorar pelo menos mais alguns. Depois retomar meus trampos habituais. De vez em quando é bom dar uma diversificada (apesar de no final das contas sempre retomar, de um jeito ou de outro, os dinos). =P

Godzilla espacial?

Pois é, esse monstrengo era algo como um clone alien do Godzilla, mas suas origens nunca foram bem explicadas. Ele veio à Terra especificamente para enfrentar o Godzilla e destruí-lo, possivelmente para abrir caminho a alguma civilização extraterrestre interessada em nosso planeta, algo que sempre acontece nos filmes do lagartão. O Godzilla sempre foi um obstáculo e todas as vezes os monstros vindos do espaço para enfrentá-lo eram sumariamente derrotados, então produzir algo com características do próprio Godzilla (e algumas cartas a mais na manga) poderia ser uma possibilidade. Mesmo assim o Godzilla venceu esse monstro, mas foi páreo duro. =D

Eu cheguei a ver no Youtube um filme novo onde (eu acho) que um alienígena reúne vários monstros e os lança contra o velho Godzilla. Inclusive o Zilla (a versão americana de Roland Emerich), que não dura nem um minuto em combate.

Pois é, esse é o Final Wars, o último filme lançado, em comemoração aos 50 anos do Godzilla. Inclusive assisti hoje, comprei daquela loja sobre a qual falei. Mas te confesso, não curti, pois simplesmente parece mais um filme dos Power Rangers do que do Godzilla. Os monstros (inclusive o próprio), aparecem pouco (!) - a história (que é bem fraquinha) fica centrada na tentativa dos aliens de invadir da Terra. Embora seja um filme da fase Millenium, como costumam chamar os filmes do Godzilla feitos a partir de 2000, os efeitos estão mais retrô (creio que algo intencional, para satisfazer os mais saudosistas). O filme reúne alguns dos principais monstros, que são verdadeiros ninjas! Movem-se incrivelmente rápido, o que destrói aquela impressão de algo grande, lento. Eles saltam, dão verdadeiros golpes de karatê. O próprio Godzilla (cujo visual também não é dos melhores) parece mais um Bruce Lee: pula, salta, enfim, tudo o que imaginar (e eles criticaram tanto a versão americana por ser um bicho mais ágil). Algumas lutas duram questão de segundos (a do Godzilla X Zilla é a primeira e mais rápida). Comprei empolgado esperando uma chance de rever os meus monstros favoritos em grande estilo, mas cai do burro, hehehe.

É esse tipo de produção que faz a gente desejar que tivessem deixado os originais em paz... pela curta cena que vi no Youtube já farejei uma bomba.
Dizem que os japoneses enfim deram sinal verde para um reboot do Zilla nos EUA, mas provavelmente diferente do que foi feito.
Mas uma dica sobre filme oriental que merece destaque: The Host (O Hospedeiro), feito na Coréia, sobre um tipo de monstro-peixe que se instala sob um ponte e passa a se alimentar de quem tá por perto. Dá pra achar na net e baixar por torrent (trailers no Youtube). Me espantou a qualidade dos efeitos visuais, cheguei a pensar se tratar de produção americana. A história meio se perde entre comédia e drama em excesso, mas mesmo assim empolga.

Não sei se ele já foi lançado em DVD, mas consegui baixar uma versão dublada em português.
Os americanos já falam em refilmar essa hisória, é mole? Prova de que é bom.

Its amazing what a more mobile body can do for a character as hammy and overcompensating as Spacegodzilla. You took a downright obese, grotesquely mutated body and made it into something that actually feels fairly natural. Really glad to see the vagina like pubic ridge, the overly compacted shoulders and his heisei hundred girth done away with. They are perhaps the most outright disturbing things in the kaiju's design.

You could have given him a thagomizer as sort of a natural homage to the crystal tail spike but genetics don't work that way I suppose lol. The head everyone is griping about...its actually rather sensical. To support a horn growth of that magnitude you'd need a thick and raised brow line. So one has to wonder...what are your thoughts on the origins of this one? Basically how would you bring Spacegodzilla into the plot since I'm fairly sure that blackhole/whitehole thing doesn't fly with either of us.
