Robot God Akamatsu: So this monster attacks Boston...

For some reason, I'm really feeling the use of the G1 toy colors on the Galvatron card...rather than the cartoon colors!
And you're correct Sanjeev- sorry for the really late response back LOL
I really love using the actual toys as a guide - more so than the cartoon or comic book illustrations because the artist are actually working from the toys themselves and trying to interpret in their own unique styles.

Here's the final poster for SavCon 2012 :

Also me and James are working on the RGA website as well as issue #4 of the web series as we try and tighten everything up for our February launch. Once again we thank everyone whose "LIKED" our Robot God Akamatsu page and we can't wait to unleash the RGA universe to the world.

Hey everyone it's a New Year and me and James are nearing the premiere date for the RGA website and web comic. There's still so much work to do yet we're getting stuff done. I just wanted to add that I currently have some auctions going for really cool prints I did years ago and forgot that I had in my collection.
Please read the info in the auction- I have limited space on the prints but I'll
try and work with it. There will definitely be an original sketch on it.

Danguard Ace Print with Sketch

Gaiking vs Grendizer Print with Sketch
[www.ebay.com]


Godzilla Print with Sketch

Please note that the Godzilla Print has a lot more white space to add a really good illustration to- more so than the other 2 ;)

Awesome work guys! I LOVE that last Godzilla piece! It should be a design on a tee-shirt!

Thanks, I'm definitely pushing to bring more awareness to the super robots that came before the Transformers (I actually love the Transformers) but I want to make sure that the younger generation can appreciate the human driven mechs. Gurren Lagann, Aquarion & LineBarrel are okay but they're definitely not (in story telling) like Grendizer, Getter Robo, Gaiking or a dozen other old mech shows.
We'd like to bring a feel of that in our series RGA.
Check out our Facebook Page for updates :)
Well here's the prints with my sketches on them. The Godzilla had a lot more white space to draw something but I did my best to make do with the space allowed on the other prints. Hope you like your Danguard Sanjeev and thanks again for the support :)

Glad you love the peace man, I was so limited with room.
If i ever plan to do any future prints- I plan to leave adequate room
for an original sketch. I mean if I had a print of the Shogun Warriors
and if there was a place for hHerb Trimpe to sketch on it- That's definitely a
treasure in my eyes.

Actually thank you, I'm glad that it found a good home...
And I'd been curious for awhile if I could handle Space Godzilla.
One of the things that I would love to see for any future films featuring the
Toho Kaijus is the use of cgi and some models to the full extent that can be
done on film. Jurassic Park is agood example as well as Cloverfield of what can be done with good direction and effects. I dream of a day to see Anguiras really
moving on all fours like a living creature, instead of a guy in a suit...
Or what about an actual movement for King Ghidorah an Mothra.
How cool that will be- One day :)

Yeah, I think you nailed the weird texture of Space Godzilla's skin.

Anyway, I think 1998's Amrrrkan Godzilla movie is about all the CG Godzilla I need. I'll only rock another CG Godzilla flick if the effects become SO good, they're able to design the computer models to look like men in suits...and I won't be able to tell the difference.

Thanks and I'm with you on hoping they can create a "believable" cgi Godzilla and other Toho kaijus :)

Hey everyone, snag up your copy of this week's DIG :

Thanks Sanjeev, James is trying to find as many copies as he can get LOL We're both happy that they chose one of the three samples we sent. I never imagined it would go to print so quickly and we hope that the extra exposure will draw people towards our ever lovin mech warrior LOL

Oh, I definitely like the second one, wrestling in the water, the best. But that would work better on a full-bleed cover, as opposed to Dig's standard layout with a border on the illustration.

The Skinny : ROBOT GOD AKAMATSU is a valentine to the Super Robot genre of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Giant robots and monsters attack Boston, and Robot God: Akamatsu (RGA, for short) is the city’s only form of defense!

RGA is also about the relationship between a father and his estranged son, about the abuse of power and how far some are willing to go to see their goals met. It’s a little bit Voltron, a little bit Force Five, and a mighty dollop of Shogun Warriors.

Who'd have thought a comic would have a cliff hanger between chapters?? =0p Enjoyed Ch.2. Actual Boston terrorizin'! I loves me some CapeCod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, etc. , BUT, so hoping to see what happens to the hoity-toits out there! woo. haha.

I think a few of us voted, and commented on the PatchTogether project. I'm sure the investment of developing merchandise is a killer for a startup, so hope you catch a break due to the fan input.

Well the South Coast region will definitely play a major role in the story as it unfolds. Thanks so much for the VOTES and yes the financial burden of both of us dealing with our families (mortgage, bills, etc) and the dream (RGA) is a definite balancing act. We just booked our hotel for the Wizard World Philly Show May 31- June 3 and it's a good thing that we were invited (so the table cost is free) but the hotel is a nice chunk of change... And we still have to get items for our table. Nothings cheap - So we have to attack everything with good ole Common Sense Budgetry. This will insure that RGA will be around a lot longer than a convention season LOL

Okay- I just got the okay to display an amazing piece of 3D art done by an amazing artisan who i met over at the Robot-Japan forum. His tag is zozo-Magengar and I've posted some of his work before (mechaGodzilla, Jet Jaguar etc). Anyway, I was teasing last month about him doing a 3D image of RGA and guess what he sent me yesterday.

Yeah he's the second artist working on a 3D version of RGA.
James and I are just blown away to see it in this format.
