Godzilla's 67th Birthday!

New drawing of my own kaiju, Rekira, shaking hands with his main inspiration, and one of my favorite characters of all time, Godzilla, for the monster's 67th Birthday today! Not the first time I've drawn such a moment, but I always have fun doing so.

Here's some more fanservice of Verena Freston (AKA: Herald 3/Mysti-Girl) and Theresa Lin (AKA: Herald 4/Therma-Gal) from Rekira the Super-Monster, walking along a beautiful beach (inspired by Rockaway Beach, one of my favorite places back in NY). :)

Introducing Rekira 2021!

Last month, I began work on a new, improved version of my CG figure of Rekira, my original kaiju, on Blender, and after my refined CG character modeling, the result is far more satisfying! Here's Rekira V2, finished tonight on Blender.

Dynamic Heralds 2021 Design Lineup

 While my original kaiju project, Rekira the Super-Monster, is in production, I've finalized the designs for the featured superhero team, the Dynamic Heralds, which I intend to use for the project! I've decided to go with a sort of Incredibles influence, with a bit of 1960s Jack "The King" Kirby, Japanese superheroes (most particularly Super Sentai), and also Olympic speed skating suits/helmets (which look very superhero-ish)!

 It's also a convenient day to post these, as today is also the 55th Anniversary of the official premiere of Ultraman (Tsuburaya; 1966) on Japanese TV (discounting the B&W pre-premiere special from a week earlier, Ultraman's Birthday)! With Rekira, I hope to continue that tokusatsu-style tradition.

Each character design was done from June 9 to July 17, on tablet in FireAlpaca.

Here's the team in Full Helmet Mode:
