Still, I like the design you went with, I don't see quit so many kaijus that use that tripod design which is a bit odd aince I find it a pretty interesting design that should be used more.
And even do I haven't seen the movie, I guess he was a pretty cool monster.
And thanks a lot !
YAAAAYYYY!!! New installment!!!!!! I've actually never seen either of the Guilala films. but I DO know about the creature. An amazing rendition you have done.
Can you share any hints as to who might be next for "revamping"?
The Martian tripod aspect is something I had not considered..and that you incorporated Wells into the mythology of this kaiju is both intriguing and a little horrifying. That something so at first deliberately goofy-looking has been turned monstrous, completely alien and frightening is a tribute to your artistic talent and your research.
Others here have noted how the insectoid differences add to the creepy factor and I have nothing but complete agreement with them. The tri-limbed, beaked and eyed look just astounds me- making something so silly that I've basically dismissed from even watching the film into something I now want to see move and breathe? Amazing.
I'm now going to check out the other artists' reinterpretations of the monster. But like I have said before- your work continues to put new perspectives on our favorite beasties, and that is one hell of a trick to pull off these days.
The initial reaction was that it wasn't really Guilala, save the skin tone... and I still am not sure if it is or not. I appreciate the explanatory notes, as always, since they especially help flesh things out in a case like this, and the War of the Worlds connection is pretty cool, but I'm just not sure if this feels like Guilala to me.
A lot of the Guilala aspects are still there - the triangle head, the antennae, the claws and the skintone - it just feels different in an odd way. This is a really nice piece, no doubt about that, I'm just not sure how nice of a Guilala it is. Part of what sells Guilala to me is the thickness of him, something that this design completely lacks. Whereas normal Guilala has two titanic legs and a pot belly (which you got rid of for obvious reasons), the only part of this one that contains mass is the chest, which makes it look like Gigan's to me when combined with the fungi.
Still, a nice piece overall when it comes to artistic quality. I especially think I'd like the head design more if I could get over the body. The tail also looks nice. In any case, I'm just glad to see that the series has returned: looking forward to whoever shows up next. (*crosses fingers for a Godzilla kaiju*)
but in seriousness this looks amazing
