Boy this one took me a while. This is the monster Cykor. A villain kaiju from the Yongary film that was made in 1999.
wanted this. Now I got to admit when he asked for it, my gut just cringed. This is far from a popular kaiju, and there is next to nothing of images of him to use for reference shots. Had to really just freeze frame the movie a lot and try to make out some details on the horrible CGI that is used to bring the monster to life. All in all though I am glad he asked for it cause I don’t think the piece really turned out all that bad.
Cykor as I said is the villain monster from the film. He is sent by aliens at the last minute, to fight the newly freed Yongary. His design is ok, but really is something that a 10 year old would come up with. He is a quadruped monster with an odd tail, two crab claw arms and a strange reptile like head. He can shoot energy out of his tail and he can jump huge distances. He can shoot fireballs from his maw that are highly explosive. Also, if he losses his arms or even his head….he can sprout tentacles to attack his opponent. These also can electrocute a fighter. Even with no head he can fight. Hence why I used the title of Cykor the Undying for this. During the whole fight, the horrible American actors in the film are forced to read off really bad dialogue about the monster’s strange immortality. Such classics as “Won’t the damn thing just die”, and so forth. I wanted to show off this ability by taking away one of his crab claw arms and have the tentacles in place of it. I also put in a handful of the alien ships with him. Rixshaw did win the contest, so I wanted to do something extra for his and make it a more comprehensive composition. Everything is made completely from scratch, with the exception of the texture of the planet that Cykor is standing on. That is a texture of the moon that was found on NASA's website. Learned a couple of new ways to make planets though that will come in handy down the road
Well, I hope he likes it and everyone else does. Once again though popularity of the monster is probably going to make this a pretty dull fav for people. It did take much longer than I thought it would. Time for bed though. Night people, and have a great weekend
