Triumph by Eugene-Siryk Triumph by Eugene-Siryk
Recently, I saw a documentary about Japanese scientist Dr. Kubodera filmed the first video of the giant squid, 9 meters in length. 40 years of research and diving, and that is result. Awesome! But at the end of the movie I heard the words "the giant squid - the last mystery of the deep". And then I thought, that there is no thirst of knowledge, no stimulus for imagination and aspirations without mysteries. And the picture had appeared in my head. Where human celebrates another victory, the last secret has been revealed, the last triumph, the moment before greatest devastation.
I'm not saying that we should not search and learn. I really liked the movie about the squid, Dr. Kubodera - well done! It's just thought. Just live in a world without mysteries would be very boring.

WOW! Many thanks to :iconhomunculus888: and :iconlaserbeast: for featuring my painting to DD! I really appreciate it!

This is a stunning, utterly gorgeous piece, and as a fan of Japanese-style giant monsters, I found it at a really good time.

I recently discovered an unproduced / abandoned 1966 film "Giant Squid Monster Arkitius", which you can read more about here:

Kaiju Unmade: Giant Squid Monster Arkitius ('66)
Last year, I stumbled upon some four, count them four, unproduced predecessors to 1967's "Gappa the Triphibian Monster". But detailed information was scarce, until I decided to team up with web-masters of Wikizilla, after an initial, now seemingly petty quibble with them.
It's been wonderful to donate my obscure monster knowledge, to ultimately nice folks that can read Japanese. And with extra help from the imperfect, but still useful Google Translator, we've found tons of Japanese blogs confirming many of these lesser-known Kaiju characters.
"Bride of Godzilla" (1956, Unmade) was brought into light under similar circumstances. But with the added assistance of my long time friend and fellow kaiju historian Cam Eion, alias Dramaranger.
Instead of going through all four of the unmade "Gappa" prototypes, let just do them one-at-a-time. And starting off with the craziest, if not coolest sounding of them all.


Even though this illustration was inspired by the first true video footage of the very real, but no less elusive Giant Squid, the sheer size and positive reactions of everyone watching, kind of reminds me of "Giant Squid Monster Arkitius".

As in the people of modern times is happy to see their lost 'Hero Monster' from the 1940's return.

And now I'm on my way to submit your wonderful work here, to interested DA groups.
