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.
I appreciate the compliment, but honestly most of the Toho stock of monsters I draw I draw off of my action figures 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.
Dhagarla's the man, seriously Toho should absolutely have revived him for further use in other projects *cough millennium films, cough*, but like Titanosaurus he shall simply remain one of the awesome on-shots....for now, anyway
