Daikaiju Jidaigeki by Enshohma Daikaiju Jidaigeki by Enshohma
Here is my submission for the 100th issue of the Godzilla-centric magazine "G-Fan", featuring three giant monsters who originate from Japan's past - hence the term Jidaigeki, as in 'Period Drama'.

This will also be a print for sale at this year's Am2Con Anime Convention (2012, July 15-17).

On the top left is King Caesar from "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla"; on the top right is the 'Idol of Terror' himself, Daimajin from his own trilogy of 1966 films; and last, but certainly not least, is the heroic ninja and occasional fire breathing toad Jiraiya, from "The Magic Serpent" (1966).

Big thanks to :iconsilver-ray: and :iconhawanja: for the last minute LiveTrace assistance.

And extra thanks to :iconburkion: for some constructive criticism, that helped me improve this picture from its lesser original version and related inks (namely King Caesar's face and head regions).

*******

That above was the short description for this upload...NOW onto the horrifically informative Extended Description.

***WARNING: A WHOLE LOT OF READING AHEAD***

Coming Soon...Trust me, it's that long!

Jiraiya? Sounds like a character's name from Naruto.

Jiraiya is a famous ninja from classical Japanese theater, folklore, and literature, whom has inspired many other fictional ninjas, directly and indirectly, ever since.

Including the one in the anime "Naruto", and the 1960's Kaiju film featured in this same illustration.

You have to contact JD Lees directly, though he's changed his e-mail since we last spoke, and having a hard time tracking it down. There's also the traditional snail mail way of submitting artwork, as mentioned in almost every issue of G-Fan itself.
