We Are Ready for Kaiju and We Don't Need Gipsy Danger

Let's face it I love the movie Pacific Rim. If the world were attacked by giant monsters from another dimension, humans wouldn't need giant robots to take them out.  Even without Jaegers, we would still hand Kaijus their butts on a Fukushima chafing dish with extra Kaiju blue on the side.  If a giant sword can kill a class 3 Kaiju, then we don't need Jaegers.  Here is a short list of weapons that would make sushi out of them.

  1. GBU57 MOP
  2. GBU28 "Deep Throat"
  3. Mach 10 Rail Gun
  4. 'Angel of Death' AC130H Spectre

Not even to speak of the Mach 10 rail gun or anything else on the list, the AC130H is the most wimpy entry coming in at number four.  It fires ten 105mm shells per minute that travel at over 1500 feet per second, with a kill zone over 1/2 a mile.  It vaporizes buildings like happy kids smashing chocolate cupcakes.  Buildings you know, those bigger things that Kaijus and Jaegers bump up against.  Direct hit?  Roll the credits.  I didn't need to have 3, 2 and 1.

Did I mention along with tons of howitzer ammo, the Spectre also has several support guns that fire 7200 rounds a minute.  Being issued shovels for your weapon, to shuck all the brass gun-poop off the plane is not quite as glamorous as piloting a Jaeger.

The only thing is, what will close the Rift?  For that, we still need the Jaegers.  Giant robots still rock.  Much entertain.

Been working on this for past three days.  I got some ideas to recycle from the attempts that didn't pass for this piece.

Ludicrous speed

Colonel Sandurz: Prepare ship for light speed.

Dark Helmet: No, no, no, light speed is too slow.

Colonel Sandurz: Light speed, too slow?

Dark Helmet: Yes, we're gonna have to go right to ludicrous speed.

50 Cassiopeiae

Posted just a bit early on this one.  Could have done more work in defining some parts, adding more contrast.  Here it is as it was posted.  Will update with some adjustments.

A quick sketch at a cafe in between some of my longer pieces this week.  Subject in conversation with their friend.

Nu Cygni

I liked how this one turned out.  put down some random marks in an app and brought that into Harmony.  Found the figure that fit in and finished it off.

This one is not yet available as a print.  Not sure about it.  Maybe after I set up a few others that I am more fond of.

Caelum

The mash up continues for now.  Started as a quick sketch and played with large dark shapes on it.  All my usual trademark routines are on this one, although for my public debut of this piece on Google, I had blocked in the subject's left pupil with a dark shape.  I did that because the line work of the left eye would be lost on a lot of people's mobile devices.  I'm putting the original version here in case people check this site on their larger screens.
