LeGrandzilla's Friend Finished by Legrandzilla LeGrandzilla's Friend Finished by Legrandzilla
Here is a shot of my Paradise Baragon, 50 cm of pure kaiju vinyl goodness which I built and painted. He is my buddy Barry. I was happy to see I was able to put him on the base and have him stand with is tail off the base, it makes him look more in movement I think..
So, he finally made it on to that base which he wanted to get on so badly the last few weeks. YAY!

Barry the Baragon is a friend I made
He's cute but he's ugly so he'll never get laid
When I'm missing other friends who have no time to talk
I will jabber at Barry 'cuz he can't walk!
His big ears will have to listen cuz he can't get away
So I can blabber on and on until the end of the day
In the movie he eats a coop filled with hens
But in this diorama he fights army mens!
Barry's made out of vinyl with a touch up of clay
He is hollow so I filled him with plastic bags one day
But his feet and his butt took a bit more study
Those I filled up with Durham's Water Putty!
And I painted him with care using many colored layers
My airbrush died in spite of my prayers :roll:
So he is painted by hand and I hope you can see
A comment on my friend would mean the world to me!
If you like him and you fave him I may post more pics
Maybe then Barry would score some actual chicks
His overwhelming fame could be the talk of the town
And Baragon and me would not be ABLE to frown!
Well, in Baragon's case he is like that already
His smile is molded on so it stays pretty steady
Sharp teeth and goopy drool on a perpetual grin
There's a loogy in his maw and slobber on his chin!
So please give some love to my new friend Barry
He is really pretty nice, and not so scary
And me, I could use a little love now and then
My name is Jon, I hope you'll be my friend!

I nearly fell over, I never saw such an awesome Barugon! Was he prepainted? I also love his ears! :D Though, the army kinda makes him look evil...Though he seems outta scale...

I've always had kind of a soft spot for Baragon, I think he's kind of cute. Nice looking Baragon you got there.

Very detailed! Normally, Baragon looks cute and cuddly. But you actually made him look a bit more fierce with I would assume is kind of hard to do. Love it!

I think the big difference is making him have a lighter iris, it takes the cute down a notch! Thanks!

Wow!!! More Kaiju awesomeness!! :D You've really finished Baragon beautifully here! The detail, finish, setting, and subtlety of the shading are all excellent beyond compare.

To your writing, poem? It's amusing and interesting to be sure. What to make of it though....I'm just not sure. :)
