2012 Kaiju Kards Set 1 by fbwash 2012 Kaiju Kards Set 1 by fbwash
I'm a huge fan of classic kaijus and have decided to start drawing sketch cards celebrating the ToHo monsters that I watched growing up.

Card One - Varan the unbelievable
Card Two - Gabara the dream monster
Card Three & Four - Frankenstein vs Baragon (puzzle card)

Oh my god... if these were actual cards I'd so buy that Gabara.

Gabara and Ichiro are some of my most favorite Godzilla characters. This is AWESOME

Maybe in the future, I'll open up commissions for sketch cards again. My art has changed since I've drawn these characters... And these are original hand drawn art. Definitely not the trading cards which are printed. Makes them more of a collectors item - Food for thought :)

Is Varan a dinosaur or a mutant reptile I can't remamber.

Wikipedia says : Varan (バラン Baran?) is a kaiju that first appeared in Varan the Unbelievable (1958). Physically, Varan resembles a giant reptile with skin membranes between his arms and legs, allowing him to glide much like a flying dragon or flying squirrel; he also has a horned head.

Eiji Tsuburaya and Akira Watanabe based Varan's design on that of a Draco lizard, Godzilla, and a kappa. The name Varan is derived from Varanus pater, or "Father of lizards."[1] In his film appearances Varan does not have any special abilities such as fiery or radioactive breath. He can however glide at speeds of Mach 1.5, and has a row of spines along his body which may afford protection.

Agreed! Varan doesn't get enough love, he's one of the most unique Kaiju Toho has but he keeps losing his roles to other monsters. I like his flight ability too, though I have no idea how he pulls it off XD. I think there was a Godzilla novel by Marc Cerasini that tried to explain how he flies, like the bumps on his back fill with hydrogen so he can float and then he rides air currents to fly or something.

YES and I love those novels. I really wish that they used those as the template for the new Legendary movie.

Thank You and I think a lot of folks who see these. Understand that they're only 2.5 x 3.5 so trying to get detail in them is such a challenge. I'm so happy to see people who do understand and like this form of art :)
