Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars by Virus-91 Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars by Virus-91
Well, here it is. This is my winning submission to the Kaiju World Wars contest for designing alternative box art for the new board game. Since I was trying to outdo any of my previous kaiju related work, I spent a whole week working on this drawing and it was drawn completely with a mouse in photoshop aside from very loose lineart that I did for each individual kaiju. I'm very satisfied with the way this turned out, but there are a few things I would like to have changed before I submitted it, maybe make the buildings look a bit more natural or darken Ghidorah's wings, but overall, I really like this.

Could this be available without the DA logo? It's such an amazing piece of work, I would love even a wallpaper version! (That's what I would use it for if it had no logo)

Actually, it was originally for download without the DA watermark, but I recently encountered someone who stole one of my drawings and claimed it as their own. But here's something that will make it easier, I can reupload this image with my own personal watermark on it that is far less distracting than the DA one so it will be available for download again.

Thanks, drawing Gigan actually gave me a good deal of trouble in this drawing. It's those scythe/hook arms of his, they are so hard to draw at certain angles.

i see, also did you use reference pictures to draw him? or was it by memory?

For GFW Gigan, I actually needed to use some references. I can easily draw Showa Gigan from memory, but GFW Gigan gets difficult. It's mainly his arms and head that give me trouble but I can draw the rest of GFW Gigan completely from memory.

Highly awesome picture there.

Rodan and Gigan both have slightly odd faces, but aside from that, I approve.

Thank you! Yeah, Gigan and Rodan both have very hard faces to draw, must be the beaks. I also normally draw them in their Showa era appearances and not how they looked in Final Wars, but I felt the need to stay true to the figs that came with the game, so Final Wars designs it was.

Spectacular! Rodan looks particularly well-done, shame he's so small...

i like that you chose to give godzilla white eyes like in GMk giant monsters all out attack, he and final wars godzilla are my favs. :D

Thanks! I actually had 3 different eye designs for him. One where his eyes were plain with yellow irises (think late Heisei Godzilla), then the glowing whitish blue ones and the last option was glowing red. I decided by having my friends vote on which eye color looked best. Although most decided to go with blue, I had quite a few of them tell me that I should have given him just plain white eyes like GMK Godzilla.

No problem dude! you certainly deserved to win that contest. this is a very very awesome cover for it. will this actually be used for it's cover when it releases or no it was just a contest? :)

:iconvirus-91:
Virus-91 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Nah, the game has already been released, so it won't be on the cover. Which I'm perfectly fine with because the actual box cover is really badass in itself!

Oh really? thats a shame, but judging by what your expression, the real cover must be truly epic. did you get any prize or anything? :)

I actually got to pick from the original sketches of Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Gigan and Rodan that are used on their character cards in the game. I went with King Ghidorah because it looked the best.
