3D Artist Creates Magnificent Category 5 Pacific Rim Kaiju

3D artist Marcus Dublin created this magnificent kaiju named Titanus (click picture to enlarge) 
 "I loved the designs of the [Pacific Rim] Kaiju so much that I decided to make one of my very own." --Marcus Dublin; 3D artist

This 3D model has so many novel details while staying true to the style to Pacific Rim, it is definitely a master piece. If we were to have any critique it would be that the silhouette is a little too similar to Leatherback, but with the the innovative placement of the exo-platting and horns that seem inspired by a  triceratops head plate is true genius. There is more than enough detail to make this Kaiju stand out on it's own.

Marcus Dublin's skills goes far beyond model making, he has rendered his model in different environments with different lighting and paid strict attention to textures. And the glowing kaiju blue highlights are as if Guillermo Del Toro drew them himself. If you look at the spiral marking of creatures from Hellboy or Pan's Labyrinth these spiral paths are signature to Del Toro and most artist miss the mark. These hit the mark perfectly, they look like they are dripped from above and take a life of their own by swirling back in on themselves.

We love all opinions from kaiju fans, even angry ones, but please keep the language clean. We have younger fans too. Thanks.
