Lobster in a bucket looks like a gigantic monster on a metallic planet, and the waterdrops look like stars.

This is transcendental.

Legendary Godzilla concept art from the Art of Destruction book.  They definitely explored some interesting areas especially with the more fish inspired designs.  I think its interesting that they have some pretty crazy ideas and then some fairly classic looking Godzilla designs.  I think the final design is a very good balance of both.

Ok, this artwork is -hella weird-

We dodged our share of bullets, didn’t we?

Wow.  I know brain storming is all about getting crazy ideas in hopes of finding something innovative, but some of these designs… like, it’s like they didn’t want something that resembled Godzilla in anything but the vaguest sense.

Glad the final design didn’t stray this far.

It doesn’t seem to me there wasn’t very much fear in veering away from his traditional design, since Gareth acknowledged that they were going for something as close (yet “naturalistic”) as possible.


Looks to me like this concept art sprouts from the whole “everybody pitch in whatever ideas you can think of” stage of the design plan, and of course that leads to a lot of differing concepts rooting from multiple perspectives and mentalities. Gareth and crew just rooted out the best and worst aspects of each and such to help build onto the current design - they had a goal and such, they just got a glut of different designs for them to root through.


In any case, I do enjoy seeing all these different ideas, even in spite of our special-held reservation for the King’s basest design (myself included). The creative process is a weird and wonderful thing.

destroy the idea that in order to be a fan of something you have to have watched everything or read everything or know all the tiny bits of information about it

destroy the idea that you have to prove your love of something in order for you to be a ‘real’ fan

destroy it, destroy it, destroy it

DESTROY ALL ASSHATS!

THE BATTLECRY THAT COULD SAVE THE FANDOMS!

Whoot. o3o

How to Pet Animals by Adam Ellis

Previously: Animated Animal Facts

I know someone who will argue the snake…

YER GODDAMN RIGHT I WILL!

FUCKIN’ MAMMAL-CENTRIC BULLSHIT RIGHT HERE!

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU

FUCKIN FUCKERS

Gonna’ have to call the BS on the snake well - unless it’s not serious, which I REALLY hope it is.

Reptiles are so much fun to pet. And also hilarious. Leonard is so calm when I pet him and he just sorta’ gives me this “eh” vibe. His skin is this odd mixture of smooth and bumpy texture, and while I do have wash my hands every time I handle him it’s certainly not what people seem to expect.

Here, have some more inaccurate DA Kaiju fanart. 

You can pull some interesting things off when you have an inaccurate memory and no reference. :pI don’t think Gecks has looked this much like a dinosaur in three years or so, haha.

People don’t always know the right way to talk to artists … so I made a guide. There’s a lot more I could have added, but these are the basics.
Some artists will draw your OC for free, but make sure that they are okay with doing that before asking. Otherwise, you’re being rude.

Seriously, don’t put yourself down to compliment others. That just puts them in an awkward position and stunts the goodness of yourself as well.

This is super important because I have received a lot of negative compliments.
NEVER say “I’ll never be as good as you”

All that being said, I’m havin’ a tough time envisioning that third compliment in context - maybe it’s just hard for me to imagine goin’ up to someone and sayin’ somethin’ along those lines. Maybe I’d just be a bit embarrassed to just go up and say to someone like Sandra or some-such, “You’re so damn cool, I wanna’ hang with you” without sounding so GUH.

10 of the Most Majestic Caves in the World

  1. Ice Cave Near The Mutnovsky Volcano, Russia - Ice caves like these form in the glaciers surrounding the Mutnovsky Volcano in Russia. Some of them are formed by vents that release volcanic heat and gases called fumaroles. (photo by Florian Wizorek)
  2. Glowworms Cave, New Zealand - The Waitomo glowworm caves are home to a unique insect – the glowworm. These insects hang glistening silken strands from the ceiling of the cave and glow to attract unsuspecting prey. (photo by waitomo.com)
  3. Son Doong Cave, Vietnam - This is the largest currently known cave in the world. It is filled with countless wonders including isolated ecosystems, weather systems and geological formations. (photo by National Geographic)
  4. Batu Caves, Malaysia - These caves have been used by English and Chinese settlers as well as the indigenous Temuan people. The bat guano in the cave was mined for agricultural purposes, but now the cave is filled with statues and is open to visitors. (photo by Danny Xeero)
  5. Marble Caves, Patagonia - Theses caves are known for the spectacular reflections that the turquoise water casts on the white marble ceiling of the cave. They are also called the Marble Cathedral because of their beautiful and arching forms. (photo by kellywhite)
  6. Phraya Nakhon Cave, Thailand - This cave was historically a popular visiting place for local kings because of the illumination provided by the collapsed roofs. The pavilion in the center was built for the visit of King Chulalongkorn in 1890. (photo by Wasitpol Unchanakorrakit)
  7. Ellison’s Cave, United States - This photograph is of the Fantastic Cave pit, part of Ellison’s Cave in the state of Georgia. It is a popular attraction for pit cavers – those who enjoy rappelling down vertical subterranean drops. (photo by secondglobe.com)
  8. Vatnajokull Glacier Cave, Iceland - This cave is located in the largest glacier in Europe. Caves like these form due to melting glacial icewater, but they can be dangerous because glaciers are constantly breaking and changing. (photo by Einar Runar Sigurdson)
  9. Cave in Algarve, Portugal - Due to its location, the cave is prone to various seaside formations because of the rock face’s relative solubility in water. This specific cave near Lagos is accessible only by water. (photo by Bruno Carlos)
  10. Reed Flute Cave, China - The Reed Flute Cave in Guangxi, China has been visited by tourists for at least 1200 years. The cave is home to a spectacular array of stalagmites and stalactites. It is named for the reeds that grow at its mouth, which can be made into flutes. (photo by Pasquale di Pilato)

im not even an artist and these prices are hurting my feelings 

This is what I have to dig through every time I look for new jobs to apply for.

For non-artists, let’s give you a little perspective.

For me, an illustration takes a bare minimum of 6 hours. Mind you, that’s JUST the drawing part. Not the research, or the communications, or gathering information. Just drawing.

That’s if it’s a simple illustration.

My art deco or more detailed stuff can take 20+ hours each.

Even simple, cartoony things still take at least 3 hours.

Let’s go with the second one. 2 illustrations for $25. Figuring 6 hours each. 12 hours total, for JUST the drawings. That’s approximately $2.08/hour. 

Asking these prices is an insult. But what’s even more hurtful is there are people out there that will take these jobs. Which only encourages rates like this to be acceptable. And there are people who will try to say these are just what you have to do to get started.

I believed that. So my first coloring gigs were just $10/page. The day someone offered me $25/page for just flatting work, I realized just how wrong I’d been. I’m still not making the rates I’d like, but now I refuse anything below $25/page. Because there is value in my time.

In any standardized industry, even ones that pay piece rate over hourly, these numbers are criminal.

Do your fellow artists a favor. Never accept jobs like these. There are others that pay legitimate rates. Or at least closer to legitimate.
