I drew another daikaiju. This one was to be an ape-like humanoid. Of course, when you create an ape-like monster, it's harder to distinguish it from King Kong than it is to make a dinosauroid or dragonoid distinct from Godzilla. When you make your own reptile monster, you can give it horns or wings or even a carapace to distinguish it from Godzilla. I tried to make my own ape monsters that have horns or antennae, to make them different from King Kong, but it came across as so ornate that they weren't so ape-like anymore. I therefore thought I would draw an ape monster that had no mouth and no pupils or irises. But when I drew the monster with blank, all-white eyes, it wasn't clear what direction it was looking in. To establish what direction it was looking in, I gave it pupils and irises. And then, when I saw the crazed look in its eyes, it just begged for a mouth full of fangs.

You know how sometimes you see those "Dynamation" dinosaur robots that are mostly stationary and repeat the same motions over and over? Kazuya Kanemaru wanted to make dinosaur puppets that were more spontaneous. Previously I had seen some rather sophisticated dinosaur puppets that were larger that people operated, but the puppeteer's legs stuck out of those. When those puppets were used on stage, they had to make a black backdrop and have the puppeteer wear black pants to camouflage. In the case of Kazuya Kanemaru's puppets, the puppeteer's legs are inside the costume. These are the most sophisticated dinosaur puppets I have seen so far.

Here's the story behind this drawing I did. Years ago Carolyn told me she was going Christmas caroling. I therefore said to her, "That makes you carolin' Carolyn!" Also around that time, she posted a news story about how paleontologists now think that the Tyrannosaurus rex was covered in fluffy chicken feathers; she remarked that she was disappointed by the news; it hurt her image of the tyrant lizard king. But, last year, another team of paleontologists found fossilized impressions of the T. rex's skin, and it turned out it was covered in scales after all. I showed this to Carolyn and said, "Isn't that a relief?" Hence, this drawing:
