I wanted to share two things today, a tribute to Gamera's birthday and the removal of my "Gifts for Me" widget.

I am removing the widget because so many of the friends who gave me gifts are gone or maybe they deleted my gift from their gallery or put it in storage, so instead of happy reminders that someone cared enough about me to give me a gift, I am reminded of their absence or that they deleted said gift....which is kind of a bummer.  But if you enjoyed seeing your art on my wall, don't despair because I have a folder called "Gifts from People I love" and that is where I put your art! :heart:

I would like to feature just a few here:
One of my first friends here, :iconventralhound: made me this wonderful piece, which I bought as a print and display it proudly in my Godzilla room.  Thank you again, Darya!
The Emblem of World Kaiju by VentralHound
She also made me My Precious by VentralHoundand also Battle by VentralHound

I made her this, one of my first attempts to do a portrait..Darya My DA Friend by Legrandzillaand also thisDarya Kogn, Lovely Ventral Hybrid by Legrandzilla  
Darya is still around, but busy.  It is always fun to hear from her, though we need to translate to talk usually.

I also have shared lately a lot about Kono the Cuddly recently.  She deactivated her account, so I have reposted her gifts to me.  You can read about her more in the deviations, but she is an example of someone I really miss, and the widget showed me she was gone..Thankful For My Dear Friends on DA by LegrandzillaA Gift from Kono by LegrandzillaKono's Sweet Hyena by Legrandzilla  I made her Kono the Cuddly Hyena Gijinka by Legrandzilla

I could share about many people, but of course there are too many.  But some were close and left, like Kono, letting me know and saying they would miss me.  Many others just got bored with DA or busy, and most never said goodbye...but I still remember and miss them.

Perhaps the hardest is when people stay around but stop talking to you.  That is hard because you wonder if you offended them, or you just did not ever matter.  People do grow apart, and I may be guilty myself of drifting from a person, but I am always excited to hear from them again.  I won't do a feature of examples of people in this category, since my intent is not to make anyone feel bad or call them out, but I do miss many people who have moved on, and I wanted to acknowledge that.

Well, now on the Gamera's birthday!  Lets feature him, shall we?  Happy 48th, Friend of Children, Guardian of the Universe, and flying, tusked turtle! :iconturtleglompplz:

Speaking of Gamera, the contest ends in just a couple of days! Photo Manip Contest Update!This is not the big contest I was planning, because I still am not finished with my Godzilla 2014 diorama.  Consider this a bit of a warm up!
This will be kaiju related cuz..well, you know me!
Here is the subject.  A photo edit representing this painting I did, using my work for the monster stock.

Here is a recent entry that :iconwogzilla: made which is a good example of what I am looking for.  Some people misunderstood and photoshopped my painting.  But this is what it might look like using my models as stock.  Paul made his own stock for Gyaos.

And this example is by :iconinnocentovia:!  In it she improvised on the theme and changed the layout a bit, but this is the idea!  It is fine to do this too, it does not need to e an exact copy of my poster if you can improve on it like she did, go for it! :)

See what we are going for? :)
So it needs to have Godzilla, Ga

This is a rare photo of the elusive legrandzilla. The legrandzilla is a solitary animal when he is painting. Furthermore, he is rather camera shy. A skilled camera ninja stalked this legrandzilla for hours before capturing this shot on film. Unfortunately for the camera ninja, the legrandzilla spied her and charged, trampling her and painting a mustashe on her nearly lifeless body with burnt umber acrylic paint. Such are the dangers of trying to capture a buck legrandzilla on film during painting season. When legrandzillas are painting Godzillas, they are particularly volatile, and should be offered a Dr Pepper and a snack before approaching. They can be very territorial when they are "in paint" as it is called, so if you see the legrandzilla with a paint brush in its hand, give it a wide berth, and by no means bump the table. This could prove to be a fatal mistake, especially if the legrandzilla is in the process of painting the eyes on the model he is working on. This rather large, alpha male legrandzilla was seen at his library exhibit, painting a Godzilla toy to be given away in a free drawing later. So, see, legrandzillas can be sweet and nice as well.

I build models and dioramas of giant monsters like Godzilla, I also sculpt and do oil and acrylic paintings. I go to G-Fest, a Godzilla Con every year and enter my work in the modeling and art contests. I have had an article and pics of my work published in G-Fan Magazine.
See more of my stuff…

And see and hear me on youtube:… I have videos showing my models, art and aquarium so far, and more to come!

Current Residence: Omaha, Nebraska
Favourite genre of music: Genres are too constraining. I like lots of music and songs.
Favourite style of art: amazing is my favorite, maybe awesome?
Shell of choice: Gamera's
Personal Quote: All your Kaiju Art are belong to us!

Happy 48th Birthday Gamera!
