MA Shin Godzilla Custom Update.
Image

Distcription from Deviantart,
Its slowly coming along, but theres been a bit of a shake up ... So lets get to the bad news.

I tried coloring the eyes in and they looked great. Thing was the jaw piece wasnt put back in yet. So I got around to doing that ANNNNDDD ... Well, this was my minds reaction to what was the result ...
[link]
Seriously, it looked BAAAAD. It appeared as if ether one of 2 things. 1. He was about to fall asleep or 2. He was STONED. One of the two. So dam annoying after all that time spent on the eyes -_-;. So in the end I got the black marker pen and gave him shark eyes, jet black shark eyes.

So in short, this custom may no longer bear the Shin Godzilla name .

To be honest, I was on the verge of giving up. So I put the whole thing back together and just left it for a few days.

Jump to the 10th of January, when a few paints from Amazon arrived. I went to store them away in my wardrobe and low and behold, the Would be Shin Godzilla custom was staring at me. Giving it a good look, how it was had started to grow on me.

So heres the good news folks. Ive decided to make this custom my own design for Godzilla. I am still debating were as to add some spikes to it, but " Spikezillas " have been done to death. So I will see.

This means, the custom is all but done.

You know what, this makes me want to start on a custom figure. Turning the 6 inch Heisei Godzilla into the 91 Godzilla. Easy part being the eyes, hard part being the spines. After WoM is done of course.
Well, that's certainly a thing.

I think Tamashii may end up releasing a Godzilla '89 to go with Biollante, well, if that ever sees the light of day that is..

It's always good to have a back up plan (especially if it doesn't cost you $80). Either way, I will (eventually) get a 89/91 Godzilla figure in the 6" range.

Sounds like a fun project Cmdmstudios. If you go ahead with it I wish you the best of luck.


Now, where was I? ...

I think its ready folks :). Granted, its quite far off from "Shin Godzilla" but theres enough to make it stand out.
So after a bit of retouch work today, my first ever custom is complete ^^.

Tomorrow, It rises ...

I'm excited to see it! Hey GIGAN05, can you put a link to your deviantart on your profile or signature maybe? That way we can keep up too?

The wait is over.

Gentlemen, I present to you my first ever custom. This is my own Godzilla design if you will.

GODZILLA - Q!
Image

Image

And just to prove that I was not lazy with the colors :P ...

I gave him "Great White Shark" eyes because of his connection with the sea. This tounge was also colored over to reflect this.
Image
Believe it or not, theres a bit of color in his ridges that can only be seen with the right lighting.
Image
Image
Image
Last but not least, the centre row of his tail spines & claws were painted in black. Just thought it would make Q stand out a bit more.

The figure turned out really good. I like the choice of paint for the skin with the slight colors and the glossy look. And the spines look amazing.

It came from the Japanese word "Nijuu Kyuu" ( Which I believe is Japanese for 29? ). Q just had a nice ring to it when put with Godzilla.

Meanwhile in custom land ...

You see burning patches ...

I suspect it's a regularly-painted Godzilla using BG's mold. Am I right? Do I get a cookie?!?!

That would be freakin' awesome! The eyes will probably be the hardest part, followed by the fins, but I wonder what it would look like with Godzilla 1994 eyes swapped out in a picture? Like a proof of concept test?

I do find it rather amusing that Japanese Paints are being used to paint a Japanese Toy. :P

@GIGAN05 great job with your custom, splendid indeed.

A little suggestion here if I may, try an ivory paint for his fins :)

Forgot to mention the ivory is for the new custom your working on.
