Godzilla Challenger WIP Mantis
I thought of what creature would be terrifying if it was 200 stories tall and came up with a praying mantis. I kind of want to do this in a retro style like 1950's horror films. I want the letters of his name to be the sky behind him but I am not sure yet how to do that. Here is a thumbnail of my idea so far.
Do you have any ideas how I could do the lettering? Should Godzilla be featured? I read that he was a copyrighted character and his owners have sued many people in the past for using his likeness, so I am kind of gun shy about using him.

@chrisaakins that would definitely be pretty scary!
I was thinking that if you did this as a vertical poster you could have the lettering way up high and have Mantis crushing the skyline at the bottom. Might come off pretty good if you used very flat colors for the background and skyline.
Just a thought, good luck!

There's nothin' scarier than giant insects.
I don't think you have anything to worry about featuring godzilla in a small online art contest. If you were to mass print the posters and sell them online, then you may have a problem

@chrisaakins Love your idea. I was thinking about something similar - a giant wasp. I hate wasps... and then i realize that cant draw something so teribble. Waiting to see more!

@chrisaakins love this idea so much only thing I’d change is angle it from a low angle to make the mantis look even bigger and more intimidating
@theprairiefox Good idea! I think that is exactly what needs to happen. Good call!
