GOJIRA (a.k.a. GODZILLA) Relief

Gojira

Guys, I can’t wait for the new Godzilla movie come from Toho this year!

This Gojira relief was sculpted in Sculpey Firm, cast in Smooth-On resin and painted with acrylics. It measures approximately 6.5″ X 3.5″

GOJIRA! (a.k.a. GODZILLA!)

Godzilla’s true name is GOJIRA, a contraction of the Japanese words for “gorilla” and “whale” (much like MAGNITUDE’s name is a contraction of “Magnetic” and “Attitude”).

My variation on big G was done for a Kaiju fan in an internet Secret Santa exchange. I wanted to incorporate a few more theropod dinosaur features while still keeping him recognizable (something the 90s American movie failed to do). Overall I think it worked so-so. I’d like to take another shot at him sometime.

Please don’t let the lighting fool you: this Gojira is the proper charcoal gray with no green in him.
