Dhagarla/Dagara by kaijukid Dhagarla/Dagara by kaijukid
One of the last pieces I was gonna do for Artist Alley. Dagara is one of my favorite one-shot Toho kaiju ever, it's too bad he never got another shot to shine.

Dargarha's concept is pretty interesting. A monster who consumes oceanic pollution to use as energy? A global warming buster! Shame that it uses that power to take over the world...

Toho could stand to be more creative with their monsters in this fashion, I think Dhagarla really paid off as an interesting monster overall.

Awesome! He looks extremely cool! This piece came out very well! Its really a shame this guy didn't see the limelight after his debut. Hes a pretty epic kaiju. I can see why you love him so much :)

Glad you like this one, it was another of those "artist alley" pics I wanted to take to G-Fest this year, and I was really happy with this one. Dhagarla is just....special, I mean it's so different than a lot of the monsters and it was the ONLY time Toho tried to be creative with the Mothra trilogy. You'd think he'd survive to shine another day.

Wonderful work! Dagara's tricky to draw, thanks to his extremely unconventional design, but you really pulled it off here! Nicely done!

I appreciate the compliment, but honestly most of the Toho stock of monsters I draw I draw off of my action figures :P That is if I want to get down those tricky details, so I definitely have source material, because you're right Dagarla is a bugger to draw.

O O O O! My favorite villain of the Mothra series. And to be honest the 2nd movie was much better than the 3rd IMO. Dagarla's Jaws like theme was awesome :) Very very cool. It's great to see him in a pose other than his usual lion like pride stance that people draw him in.
