Deep Kaiju by PeterSiedlArt Deep Kaiju by PeterSiedlArt
hu... was about time to upload a new big artwork... didn't do such stuff for quite a while... it's fascinating to me how much I love drawing monsters... it's always fun...

so 'Pacific Rim' is now in the theaters and thanks to that movie many more people will know what 'Kaiju' means...

eternal thanks to two great artists: Ray Harryhausen and Ishirō Honda...

EDIT: since some people asked I have to clarify concerning the design, that the design of the Kaiju is based on several monster-designs from Pacific Rim or similar japanese monster-movies... I also thought of a turtle somehow...

uh, i like it when people think it's perfect what I do...^^ personally I'd never, ever admit or think, it's perfect what I do... but it's good to have sometimes some fans, who obviously think that way and encourage me to go on with what I do... :D

:) Awesome pic. I think that the body is kind of like a hatchetfish. Perhaps it could be an inspiration?

The head looks like a combination of Otachi (horns) and Leatherback (crest). The arms look like the arm fusions from Knifehead, Scunner, Slattern.

Looks good. Shell is a nice touch.

Though I am afraid that we will only get one Pacific Rim Film, I am so happy I can see amazing art work like yours that will keep this new fictional world going.

The boney design, especially the arms, the lighting from above and it's own body, and the boat for scale is all very inspired. You did a great job! Will you do any jaegers?

Thanks for sharing!

Is that an Otachi and Leatherback turmix?

...if I'd still be a freelance artist I'd gladly do one for you, but I am employed at a company since quite some time and I have some personal projects, that I am working on in my free time, therefore I have to say no in this matter...

but big thx anyway! :-)

hi nun wieviel sollte man für so ein Bild auslegen?
Reply
:iconpetersiedlart:
PeterSiedlArt Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
ja, das ist immer die gretchenfrage. mit einem bekannten namen und so ist's nach oben hin relativ offen... sonst muss man wie immer eigentlich einrechnen, wieviele stunden man dafür braucht/gebraucht hat... kommt auch drauf an, ob's ne illustration für ein buch-cover ist oder in 'nem magazin etc. um die zwei tage arbeit war das hier, würde also so in etwa 300-450 euro sagen, je nach verwendungszweck (andere artists würden da vielleicht eine etwas andere zahl nennen allerdings^^)... kann aber wie gesagt auch deutlich mehr sein, wenn man gefragter ist...

ja von der qualität ist das evtl ein guter Preis. so viel Geld für ein Privates Bild würde ich aber nicht auslegen wollen....

ich denke Mein teuerstes Bild bis jetzt war so ja um die 300.
wenn ich also die Qualitätsstufe deines Monsters mit eine Gleich Hochwertigen und Aufwendigen BG einrechnen Sind wir schnell bei 1000....

This is an awesome design for a Kaiju. What are you going to call it? Also, what category is it, and what special abilities does it have? Great job.

:iconpetersiedlart:
PeterSiedlArt Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
aah... to be honest I never thought about any special abilities or about any name for that creature... though quite often there is some story or background for my artworks... but not in this case... so feel free to interpret into it anything you want... ;-)

...and thx for the accolades of course! :D
