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!

How do you submit to them? I couldnt find any information on their website on ho to do so, nor did emailing them work.

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.

We dont get G-Fan down here for some reason, so I havent had an occasion to read a physical copy for years. I'll have to research for the email and snail mails, so thanks for letting me know.

Ooh, very nice! Interesting idea to combine these three ancient guardian demigods...

Thank you so much for the nifty comment, and yes, 'Demigod' is probably the best term to use, seeing how on of them is just a ninja prince with magical powers.
