Forces of Zigra by earthbaragon Forces of Zigra by earthbaragon
Another big illustration for this monthís current at Jam at the :iconkaijuden: I always want to go big for these cause they really are specially too me. I mean itís great to see fan collaboration come together on such neat subjects such as that get picked at the club.

So what went through my mind when I did this. Well, Zigra is a race of aliens. Even though we only just see the one. I image that it would be like the Viras beasts. But, since they are fish, (and fish come in a wide variety of colors and shapes for similar species), I thought it would be cool to do multiple ones. Kinda like the Predators. All are the same, but with different traits. In this case each Zigraís head, armor, and color scheme differ. I was going to have a tractor beam coming from the ship or a water spout, but it just made the background way too busy. Just took away from the cleanness. In celebration of everything Zigra I decided to throw in itís alien ship and the girl from original movie that he mind controls. Hopefully I didnít make her too ugly. Not all that use to doing people honestly :) Top all this with an underwater scene that I made from scratch. Honestly I love the bubble trails in the water as the ship is cutting through it. :)

Next up is an art trade, which only needs shading. And then a special treat for giant monster show fans. Hope you all enjoy!

You know, Zigra wasn't very bright. I mean, for some reason it thought it could threaten to feed children to dolphins.

I wonder if the silly outfit of the Human-helper-girl was Zigra's idea, or what....

Anyways, neat collage of the Zigra-creatures.

When I did this I never noticed how much her outfit looked like the chest part of the shark. Still.........she was better in her bikini outfit in the movie :)

I swear at the end of the movie when Gamera started playing his back like a xylophone. I was literally like WTF?! Zigra is a very interesting looking monster. Kinda reminds me of Gigan just a bit. You are very good! I'm going to keep commenting random pictures of yours XD.

Haha thankx :) Yeah, I have to say out of all the Gamera villains that Zigra is my favorite. More so than Barugon and Gyaos which are usally people's top Gamera villains. I do not know, there is just something about the guy that strikes me.

Thankx. If I had another week or 2, I probably would have done a more traditional shading like what I did with the Hedorah, but I'm pretty happy with how it came out :)

Very cool work, I like all three Zigras, especially the red eyed giant one. And the girl looks nice too :D

Thankx. The giant one I tried my best to model after the Zigra in the film. With the yellow orb and red eyes. The other 2 I just did differently by changing their eyes, orbs, body colors, and overall armor plating. I think I overdid the girl's bust lol. I just really am not that great at human proportions to the body.

I like the idea How you put more than just one zigra in there, In my Comic origin to zigra I used the same idea, Since zigra explains in the film there were more of his own race. he was just sent out to conquer earth since their planet was dying.

Haha, way too modest. For a first try in years, my girl didn't come out butt ugly, which is what I was afraid of. It's just another big celebration piece. You can blame the blue highlights in her hair from me watching all 13 episodes of the Silver Surfer Cartoon on Netflix lol. That vintage 90's comic book style when you got really dark or black hair lol. I cant wait to see what yours will turn out to be! :)

Thankx. It was not all that I planned for it to be, but I think I almost like the clean look of this over the ideas I had floating in my head. It's amazing what you can create when you combine 3 or 4 different Photoshop tutorials.
