Been designing and sculpting kaiju like crazy, and have a new one ready to share! This is Nachtmaros, who originates from the same planet as Hauntrara and Paralyzor, only of a different species (note the six eyes instead of one, and lack of arms). It uses its psychological powers to invade the dreams of those it seeks to destroy. When they see it in real life, they often have a feeling of horrifying déjà vu as they gaze up to its presence...but not for long, considering the monster's swift and merciless attacks.
Here's the 2nd of my creatures for my still unnamed Kaiju project (though I have a few ideas for names :). This is Paralyzor, whose cyclopian stare freezes people in their tracks, in tandem with Hauntrara. These first two creatures are part of the same family, hence the similarity in their structure (one eye, scales, webbed limbs). Paralyzor is a surface based Kaiju and focuses more on small groups and precision attacks, where as Hauntrara is airborne and has a much broader effect on the masses.
Here is a look at the first of a series of creatures I’m concepting and creating for my own set of kaiju collector cards!
This is Hauntrara, a flying dragon inspired kaiju that slowly hovers over cities and paralyzes their population in fear, making them vulnerable to the more physically destructive monsters.
This is an untextured/unposed model, as I’m learning ZBrush along the way with the project (and having a blast with it!) and haven’t quite figured all that out yet. The cards themselves will feature more fleshed out artwork, and of course plenty of insane kaiju destruction!
Also, each monster has its own sumi inspired mark to identify it with, based on its unique shape.
I recently finished a Halloween III: Season of the Witch poster for Downright Creepy! This was an absolute BLAST to work on, and I hope I get to work on more horror movie posters in the future!
It's available as a 3 color, 18x24" screenprint, and a nifty VHS pack filled with vintage trading cards, buttons, magnets and other goodies! Snag 'em now at downrightcreepy.com!
