Rodan Finished! by Legrandzilla Rodan Finished! by Legrandzilla
Yay, I got done in time for G-Fest! ^^
Look for a journal soon with a list of name entries so far, and a call for YOUR entry to Name this Diorama! And win a prize!
See if you can find all 7 sailors!
Hope you like it, and wish me luck in the Model competition at G-Fest in Chicago next week! This will be my Scratchbuilt Model entry.

Vision:
I really saw what you were shooting at. I love every bit of this, and also have a suggestion. (That you probably shouldn't take.) I don't know if you've done this before, but next time you experiment with making water bases, you should try putting a glaze on the water. Something like Odge-Podge, though I am pretty sure that stuff is pink. It seems like it would look pretty realistic, and I'd like to see what it would look like.

Originality:
I wasn't sure if I should take off points knowing you were using a character that you didn't create and then I realized...First, you put your own spin on Rodan, and second, You were making a recreation of a character and it doesn't look EXACTLY like the old character.
If you've seen one of those Neo-Godzilla character drawings, this seems to look like one, and I love that.

Technique:
Your technique is GREAT. The fact you could mount a large seemingly bulky model of Rodan on a little humpback whale with what?...3 points holding up the whale is amazing. The water is great looking and I love that the blue quickly bleeds into white on the tips of the water/waves. Rodan himself seems to not have much to him, but still seems to amaze me. I like that you didn't make this TOO much to take in.

Impact:
The fact you could pack such a huge punch in a little package like this is beyond amazing. I love this...That's all that needs to be said.
This just does something for me that I love about little dioramas like this.
What do you think?

Very nice model work. Were you going for a Trendmasters style at all with the design, or is that purely coincidental?
Reply
:iconlegrandzilla:
Legrandzilla Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks..I didnt even know what the trendmasters looks like until I just looked it up? So I guess it must be a coincidence, but to me, they look quite different..

It was just an observation really to see if you had it in mind. They definitely do both have their own, unique looks, I just thought I'd ask.

I pretty much like this Rodan. It's like you took what made him and amplified it a bit. My only minor gripe is that his spikes could be a bit smaller. Just makes me wonder how he goes without stabbing himself.
