Giant Robo and Tetsujin 28 vs. Black Ox and GR2 by KaijuWithNoName
Giant Robo and Tetsujin 28 vs. Black Ox and GR2
I've always been a fan of GR1 ever since the days of seeing Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Stood Still OVA and later seeing Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot (thank you, iTunes and Shout Factory!). My interest in Mitsuteru Yokoyama's works were further validated because of the awesome Tetsujin 28 DVDs released by Geneon (wasn't entirely a fan of the live-action film they also released, but that's just me). So I felt that it would be awesome to see Giant Robo and Tetsujin 28 team up to take on Black Ox and GR2 (Torozon, as it was called in Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot). I hope you'll enjoy it.

When I submitted my recent tribute to Raven and a good friend of mine that cosplayed as her, I had to choose between two versions to submit - this or the colored piece. Kara B., the friend I did this piece for, suggested that I also upload this version of it. Eh, why not? Here's my black and white version, which felt like something right out of the first three Sin City volumes. I hope you will enjoy both versions of this piece.

Time for me to once again showcase one of my favorite cartoons- Teen Titans. This time I'm showcasing the gloomy, half-human half-demon sorceress of the team- Rachel Roth a.k.a. Raven (voiced by the talented Tara Strong). When I was watching Teen Titans for the first time when it aired, there was a sense of mystery to the show since say for Robin I knew nothing about the characters. This piece was intended to reflect said mystery.

This piece is also intended as a going away present for Kara B., one of my good friends. In my Sketch Dump, I included Raven in it because I wanted to give my tip of the hat to her excellent cosplaying as Raven (in fact, I think its the best that I've ever seen). She was an awesome person. She was kind, considerate, and understanding of me. She is moving soon and I will miss her. This is my way of thanking her for hanging out with a dingus like me and my way of saying good luck at where she's moving to.

Sketchbook Fun: Race Bannon by KaijuWithNoName
Sketchbook Fun: Race Bannon
Ah, cartoons. I love watching them. You know what I love more? Action cartoons- from Space Ghost to Gargoyles to The Legend of Korra, they're so much fun to watch. Although action cartoons in the States technically started with the Popeye and Superman shorts by Max Fleischer, I think they truly started in 1964 with Jonny Quest. The show was inspired by radio shows, Doc Savage, Edgar Rice Burrough's John Carter series, Tom Swift, action-adventure comics, and other action filled stories. The series was important because unlike other projects done by Hanna-Barbera, this was the first to incorporate a more realistic style of art than their other works. This show was also important because it aired on all three major networks at the time. When I was a kid, I used to watch Jonny Quest when it came on Cartoon Network during the 90's. The show was just pure fun. My favorite episode, even though I sadly didn't reference it in this piece, was The Invisible Monster. I never watched the two made-for-tv films nor the The New Adventures of Jonny Quest, but I did watch The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest (it was OK....I really have no strong recollection of the series, but I feel like I should check it out just to see if I remembered it).

One character I was a fan of was Roger "Race" Bannon- who kept redefining what it meant to be awesome in 60's cartoons. He was a former secret agent, a body guard, and a pilot. He was a martial arts expert who defeated guys that honestly should have been tougher than him. He was the muscle to Dr. Quest's brain. He was a role model to Jonny and Hadji. He always got "Jezebel" Jade. He dealt with monsters and bad guys like as if they were nothing. He is the first true bad-ass in an American cartoon- Race Bannon. I hope you'll enjoy my sketched tribute to him.

A Love Beyond All Computation by KaijuWithNoName
A Love Beyond All Computation
"But I want to be a teacher.....and maybe get to Broadway.....then get to Hollywood....and become a big dancing star like Gene Kelly....get to meet people like Kirk Douglas and Nick Adams....all those big shots."- Herman Munster

When I was going through my deviantart watch list, I saw an art piece from one of my favorite artists, Zornow. :iconzornow: It was an awesome piece dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Invasion of Astro-Monster/Monster Zero/Godzilla vs. Monster Zero, one of the best kaiju films made during the Showa era. zornow.deviantart.com/art/GODZ…  When I saw that piece, I felt that I should also give my tip of the hat to this film.

With this fanart, I decided to dedicate it to two of the film's human characters (well, a human and an Xilien but whatever)- Astronaut Glenn (portrayed by Nick Adams, an actor I briefly mentioned in my tribute to The Outer Limits) and Miss Namikawa (as portrayed by the lovely Kumi Mizuno). I like these actors, but when they're both on screen it just works perfectly (especially with another kaiju film that's celebrating its 50th anniversary- Frankenstein vs. Baragon/Frankenstein Conquers the World). This film not only featured an onscreen chemistry that I don't think was really captured in other kaiju films' couples, but it also was the first to incorporate the plot point of aliens using kaiju to invade the Earth. (Though, I guess it could be argued that The Mysterians did it first since they introduced Moguera.) It is a plot point that comes up in many other kaiju films and would used as a plot point for Pacific Rim. I hope you guys enjoy this piece.

Fun fact- when I finished inking and scanning this piece in, the El Rey Network aired during its 24 hour marathon of Godzilla films Godzilla vs. Monster Zero. That is not only perfect timing, but also another reason why I ride with El Rey.

Well, fellow deviants- looks like I'm back. My schedule is starting to lighten up lately, so be sure to check in for some more submissions.

Anyway, onto a bit of news that I should address and admittedly have been slow in giving an opinion on - Godzilla Returns....to Japanese cinema. That's right - Toho is making a film series while Legendary Pictures focuses on making its Godzilla trilogy. The news came on March 30, which made me suspect that this was a faux article due to April Fools' occuring that same week. But, it was later revealed that the news was true. The source I learned this information from was the author of Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters: Defending the Earth with Ultraman, Godzilla, and Friends in the Golden Age of Japanese Science Fiction Film himself, August Ragone, on his blog "The Good, The Bad, and Godzilla".

As far as my thoughts are opinions, even though I am excited to see more kaiju material [especially since there's a live-action Attack on Titan coming up soon], I have mixed feelings about this. Yes, its great to see Godzilla return [especially with Shinji Higuchi, the visual effects master behind the Gamera trilogy, and Hidaeki Anno, the creator of the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, attached to the project]. The teaser poster does get you excited for the upcoming movie. I am, however, worried that this might potentially hurt the Legendary pictures trilogy. But, it is entirely possible that I may be overreacting and might need to just relax and accept the fact that we're getting some more kaiju awesomeness in the near future. Overall, this will more than likely be an interesting experience for kaiju fans.

Abayo!
