Colored pencil, ink, Photoshop finish.

I grew up watching Godzilla movies, sketching monsters of my own, and reading Forrest Ackerman’s Famous Monsters of Filmland. It’s been fun to re-engage with that boy, who faced some very real monsters but managed to make it to the end of the second reel. I might even try to create a posable model of this one and make a stop-action film in the tradition of some of my heroes like Ray Harryhausen and Stan Winston. I think I would have loved working in special effects, and The Stan Winston School of Character Arts offers some great classes on creature creation.
