says: GAIAAAAAA! Yep. That was pretty much the first thing that popped in my head when I saw this. Its not a pose I think of when I think of old JJ. Though you got to wonder how in the world the robot can fly at all. Never the less, it is an awesome pose. Colors are great. And the blurriness of the ground and sand really give a more foreshortening look to the piece. It flat out tells you to look at the giant robot and nothing else! Pretty awesome job though. You always seem to give an unique feel and energy to subjects of Japanese culture. Superb work as always my co-nerd friend.
says: I was going to make the "Ultraman Gaia" comparison myself, which obviously was intentional on your behalf, considered what a huge Ultra Series fan that you are. Not to mention the only DeviantART member to draws them regularly. And with that said, I probably have a slight bias in favor for this image, as "Ultraman Gaia" is one of my favorites from the franchise. And the title hero's spectacular entrance in most episodes, which your image is aping, is among the best in all of Kaiju and Tokusatsu history, in-my-opinion.
Long story short, a television show called Mystery Science Theater 3000 did a comedic commentary track of a Jet Jaguar film, and they closed out with a sketch where they intentionally mis-subtitled Jet Jaguar's theme with nonsense lyrics. "He jock if made of steel" was the opening line.
I recommend that episode and the show in general; the commentary they provided was one of the really good ones.
He's got the Gaia landing doesn't he? That is pretty rad though. Sadly I am going to miss this jam but I am hoping to have my Gudis/Dogorah done by next month haha. Just wondering. The smash effect and the green follage. Are those from stock brushes in photo or are those custom ones?
