SCULPTURE - "King Hog VS Bullzilla" pt. 1


Time for some KAIJU CHAOS! For the uninitiated..."kaiju" is Japanese for "strange beast" or more typically "giant monster". I've had a couple of requests to sculpt something with my all-time favorite kaiju...GODZILLA! But as usual...I decided to put my spin on it.

One of the goofiest Godzilla movies ever made is "King Kong VS Godzilla". The gorilla suit is horrendously bad...but the action is over-the-top ridiculous, which is why I love it!
I was wondering how I could have some fun with that famous fight...but with a little something thrown in from my Arkansas heritage. What other beasts could I mix-in, that could rival the intensity of those two behemoths going at it?!!! Why, long-time arch-enemies...the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Texas Longhorns, of course!!

So...here's a sketch of the battle royal that I will be sculpting next! I might throw in some tiny buildings or tanks, for scale...depends on what I can find from some model kits for that stuff.
As usual, my very rough early-stage sketches are shown below. At first, I had the roles switched on which mascot would be mutated with which monster. This project might take me a while, since I'm building two ferocious beasts. Check back later...or run through the streets screaming...either is appropriate.

This looks like it could be an awesome project! Lightning hooves and fiery breath makes for a great battle!

The Murphy's down the street will love this since their son Chesley has been to both schools in the past two years....Very interesting...you know it will go over well in Arkansas. mom

how do we purchase some of your stuff?

Jason...thanks for your interest in my sculpts! Unfortunately, these are not for sale...they are just one-of-a-kind things that I make for my own enjoyment. And they are not sculpted in a way that would be conducive to making a mold, and casting them. They are just fun for me to make. But thanks for the huge compliment that you'd want one!!
