Hot Pursuit by KaijuDuke Hot Pursuit by KaijuDuke
Here we have the first of two new commission pics I ordered from :icondarkereve: (who also came up with the spiffy title lol). The scene depicts Rodan, based off his Final Wars appearance (the best looking Rodan we've seen in years), being pursued by my fan version of the advanced anti-kaiju mech Garuda, originally designed by :iconalmightyrayzilla:.

Garuda is currently in its high speed aircraft mode, charging its hyper maser cannons while firing its mini guns...Can Garuda match Rodan's mastery of the skies? Or damage his indestructible kaiju hide for that matter? Only time will tell! O_O

Hope you all enjoy Rodan & Garuda as much as I do :3

Is this based on the fanfic "Rodan: King Of The Sky"?

Here is the link if you want to read it: www.fanfiction.net/s/3815890/1…

The basic plot is like this: the fanfic is a sequel for the original Rodan. The titular monster is probably the child of the original Rodans, but he grown even bigger than his parents probably after being mutated by radiation, just like Godzilla. After the new Rodan becomes an adult it starts to kill people and destroy planes for food and to protect his territory. As the military run to stop Rodan, a mysterious cult from Atlantis is striving to resurrect their god (a bat like Kaiju from the Gamera series), and Rodan ends up being the only hope for mankind.

Nice! This is a really good piece! Though how the Garuda could 1: keep up with Rodan and 2: not be blow to bits by his sonic bursts, is beyond me! Either way, nice work!

Yeah, Heisei Rodan's design was okay, but the puppet they used for him was SO STIFF, the Showa and Millennium era Rodan suits seem much more lifelike due to their flexibility (and less fragile lol). I did love Fire Rodan's uranium heat beam though :3

Thanks, I love Rodan too, they need a Godzilla vs Rodan movie to give us a break from all those Godzilla vs Mothra vs MechaG vs Ghidorah flicks lol
